We couldn’t agree with Josh Raynolds any more about our 2012 Pinot Noir Mount Richmond:

“Brilliant ruby-red.  Intense blackberry, cherry and sandalwood aromas are sharpened by peppery spices and a hint of orange peel.  Juicy and broad in the mouth, offering sweet red and dark berry flavors that show liqueur-like power and no rough edges.  The fruit-dominated finish features a sexy Asian spice quality and silky, well-knit tannins that come on late. 92″- Josh Raynolds

Our 2012 La Bohème Pinot Noir is off to a good start- just read what Josh Raynolds has to say about it:

“Vivid ruby-red.  Aromas of dark berries, cherry compote and oak spices are lifted by subtle mineral and rose elements.  Offers juicy black raspberry and floral pastille flavors that are given sweetness by a touch of vanilla and sharpened by a peppery note.  Round tannins shape a smooth, fruit-driven finish, which clings with very good clarity and authority.  This forward, plush pinot is delicious right now. 91 Points.– Josh Raynolds

Our 2012 Pinot Noir Clay Court continues to impress:

“2012 Pinot Noir Clay Court Willamette Valley($60) Vivid ruby-red.  Sexy, expressive aromas of dark berry liqueur, cherry pit, floral pastilles and woodsmoke, with a spicy topnote adding vibrancy.  Offers silky, open-knit blackberry and spicecake flavors and a touch of cola that gains strength on the back half.  In a fruit-driven, forward style, with excellent finishing clarity and length and supple tannins that come in late.  92″ – Josh Raynolds

2008 Pinot Noir Reserve:

93 Points “Bright ruby. Pungent, intensely spicy bouquet of raspberry and blackberry preserves, potpourri, wilted rose and cola, with a suave vanilla quality in the background. Juicy, penetrating red berry preserve flavors blend richness and vivacity smoothly and show an open-knit, sweet character. Supple tannins arrive late and add focus and grip to the impressively long, spicy finish. Drinkable now with a little air, but this really deserves a few years of patience.” – Josh Raynolds (July 1, 2010)
