Josh Raynolds of Vinous gives a thorough analysis of the 2015 Vintage for Oregon, reporting that “Oregon Pushes the Quality Needle for Pinot.” We are very pleased that Josh gave our 2015 Goodrich Pinot Noir top marks:

2015 GOODRICH PINOT NOIR – 93 POINTS

“Light vivid red. Suave, spice- and mineral-accented red berry and potpourri aromas, accompanied by a hint of succulent herbs and a smoky nuance that emerges with air. Sweet and precise on the palate, offering energetic raspberry, cherry and spicecake flavors along with muskier rhubarb and floral pastille notes. The penetrating, red-fruit-driven finish shows excellent clarity, smooth tannins and strong persistence.” – Josh Raynolds, vinous.com

Neal Martin, writing for Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate, gave our 2014 Goodrich Pinot Noir 92 points:

“a blackberry and briary scented bouquet with subtle earthy tones, nicely defined but tightly coiled at the moment. The palate is medium-bodied with soft and supple texture and it is difficult to discern the whole cluster fruit, that is to say there is hardly any stemminess in this wine. Instead, there is plenty of spice toward the finish with black pepper and clove notes infusing the black fruit. This delivers style and class and (of course) it comes recommended.”
