Winemaker's Notes

#84 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2011

Mother Nature delivered ideal conditions for making complex and full-bodied Pinot Noir. The 2008 vintage may represent a new benchmark for Oregon Pinot Noir.

Critical Acclaim

"A velvety, focused and extraordinarily expressive, offering a lovely mouthful of plum, blueberry and mineral flavors that gain momentum on the medium-weight finish, persisting enticingly. The structure seems to melt away, and the flavors just hang in there. Drink now through 2018. 250 cases made."
97 Points

"The 2008 Pinot Noir Grace Vineyard is made entirely from Dijon clones and was aged for 16 months in 80% new French oak. It offers up a multi-dimensional aromatic array of smoke, rose petal, incense, black cherry, and black raspberry. Sweetly fruited with outstanding depth, it has the structure to evolve for several years. This lengthy effort will be at its best from 2013 to 2023. "
