Style: Smooth & Supple

Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 14.1%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Highly perfumed nose displaying loads of red cherry, raspberry, dried blueberry, slight citrus, and cola. The palate is ripe and ample, showing red plum, black raspberry, caramel, clove, vanilla and violet with a supple and well-balanced finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Pure and focused aromatically, with blueberry, plum, spice and loam aromas leaping from the glass. The firm tannins have bite, but the complex flavors shoot through on the lively finish. Shows depth and grace. Best from 2013 through 2018."
91 Points

"The 2008 Pinot Noir Yamhill Cuvee is medium ruby in color with an expressive nose of spicy red fruits and considerable terroir character. On the palate the fruit leans to the dark side of the spectrum with intense black cherry and black raspberry flavors as well as excellent grip, balance, and length. This tasty effort can be enjoyed now but has the stuffing to evolve for 2-3 years. "
91 Points

"We have commented before on the virtues of the 2008 vintage with regard to Oregon Pinots, and this pert, keenly focused effort shows off the extra measure of fruit that marks the harvest. Firm, but fleshy with constant themes of ripe cherries from front to back, it stays true to the structured North-western model and looks ready to reward another four or five years in the cellar."

Just and excellent Pinot. One of our favorite from the Willamette Valley. This one we bring to our favorite French restaurant when we have all types of food. Pricey but great for a special time
