2016 Pinot Noir Willamette Valley

Blackberry and candied orange scents intertwine with notes of cinnamon and dark chocolate. A vibrant, juicy core of ripe dark cherry and Italian plum shows great freshness of fruit, leading into a long spicy finish of nutmeg, earth and black pepper.

“Brilliant ruby-red. Expressive red berry preserve, candied rose and baking spice scents show excellent clarity and lift. Fleshy but lively as well, offering sweet raspberry, cherry and spicecake flavors”
Vinous (May, 2019)

92 Points from James Suckling

“Plenty of bright, fleshy red cherries on offer here with the beginnings of very detailed, complex style. The tannins are succulently delivered with a very powerful draw and release on the palate. Expansive finish and elegant power. Drink or hold”

90 Points

“A lovely, fruit-packed wine, this is made in a forward, friendly style and given the same care as the single-vineyard wines. Released a bit later, it has benefitted from both the excellent vintage and the extra bottle age. Mixed blueberry and blue plum fruit offers pleasing notes of coffee and chocolate, and retains a hint of anchoring minerality.” – Paul Gregutt

90 Points in Robert Parker

“A bright, open nose of strawberry jam, boysenberry and blueberry preserves with touches of spice and earth. Light to medium-bodied, it gives good concentration of red and blue fruits in the mouth with juicy acidity and fine-grained tannins, finishing with touches of nutmeg and forest floor. This is a great value.”
