Our 2019 Pinot Noir Willamette Valley has been honored with a 92 point score & an Editors’ Choice designation in Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
“Production has doubled on this estate-grown wine, and the overall quality is excellent. Fresh and fragrant in blueberry and blackberry fruit, it’s nicely layered and balanced across the palate. Along with the fresh berries are touches of savory Italian herbs and even a hint of dill. The tannins, though earthy and firm, are ripe and proportionate. This wine is sure to please immediately.” – Paul Gregutt, Contributing Editor
We consider anything 90 points or above a solid recommendation of our wine. The review will post in the December 2021 issue of Wine Enthusiast Magazine and at winemag.com.
