Critical Acclaim

"Editors' Choice"

"Robert Brittan makes the Ermisch wines, of which the 2011 Pinot Noir Erendira's Rise that I tasted with him represents the second release, source from diverse sites including a smidgeon from Brittan's own property. The Ermisches – who live locally – are owners of wineries in Argentina and Mexico as well as of an import company, Southern Wine Group, focused principally on Latin American wines but also commercializing this one; and they're searching for a Willamette property of their own. Tart-edged red currant and sour cherry make for a highly vintage-typical, bright and sappy palate performance, with hints of baking spices adding to the appeal of a long, vibrant finish. Whether or not this picks up some additional complexity with time in bottle, it will certainly remain a delicious ambassador for its region and vintage over at least the next several years."
