Winemaker's Notes

The name "Elizabeth's Reserve" was first used in 1986 to designate the blend of our best barrels of Pinot noir. From 1987 until 1999 it designated a single vineyard wine, but in 2000 returned to a "best of winery" reserve - the best barrels from our best lots. Most of the fruit for this wine (65%) comes from five of our estate vineyards located on south-facing slopes of the Chehalem Mountains and Ribbon Ridge. With many wonderful lots representing different soil types, clones, site climates, fermenter sizes, and barrel characteristics, winemaker Dave Paige pulls together those that best create a reserve level wine, one that truly reflects the vintage and character of our corner of the Willamette Valley.

Critical Acclaim

"Delicate and savory, this wine's scents of forest floor berries, horehound and a whiff of cinnamon and clove lead the charge in the glass. The flavors reflect that spiciness, accenting mild fruit notes of cherry and Asian plum, with an impressive delicacy and briskness at once. It needs some time; then serve it with duck breast. "
93 Points

"Light, bright red. Fresh red berries, rose oil and Asian spices on the perfumed nose. Silky, open-knit raspberry and floral pastille flavors show good depth and become spicier with air. Quite suave, with plush red fruit note clinging on a long, smooth, subtly tannic finish. This sexy pinot should be in its prime within the next couple of years."
