Winemaker Notes

This wine is both elegant and intense, offering layered aromas of red raspberries, fresh Oregon strawberries, brown spice and cedar. Aromas reflected on the palate are pure and elegant, it is exceptionally balanced with silky tannins and a persistent finish.

This wine will pair beautifully with lamb, duck, grilled salmon and aged cheeses.

Blend: 100% Pinot Noir

Critical Acclaim

WE 92
Wine Enthusiast
Elegant and complex, this conjures up scents and accents of breakfast tea, black cherry, cassis and cut tobacco. It's tart and sappy, with youthful verve and refreshing acidity. Drink now through 2025.
JS 92
James Suckling
An extremely well-done wine for the 2013 vintage with spice, dried-lemon-rind and strawberry character. Medium body, light tannins and a crisp finish. Stylish. Drink now.
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2013 Pinot Noir Elizabeth's Reserve underwent a four to six day skin maceration and was matured for ten months in 31% new French oak. It offers raspberry and pomegranate scents on the nose, before changing tack towards hints of iodine and even boot polish. The palate is lithe and fresh in the mouth - succulent tannin and bright red cherry and strawberry fruit to the fore. Harmonious with good length, this is one of the best releases from Adelsheim this year.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Dark red. Aromas of cherry pit, black raspberry and blood orange are joined by an emerging hint of rose oil. Bitter cherry and currant flavors become sweeter on the back half and pick up a spicy nuance that adds lift and cut. Shows very good clarity and firm bite on the finish, which hangs on with strong tenacity.

Willamette Valley

View all wine

One of Pinot Noir’s most successful New World outposts, the Willamette Valley is the largest and most important AVA in Oregon. With a Mediterranean climate moderated by a Pacific Ocean influence, it is perfect for cool-climate viticulture—warm and dry summers allow for steady, even ripening, and frost is rarely a risk during spring and winter.

Mountain ranges bordering three sides of the valley, particularly the Chehalem Mountains, provide the option for higher-elevation, cooler vineyard sites. The three prominent soil types here create significant differences in wine styles between vineyards and sub-AVAs. The iron-rich, basalt-based Jory volcanic soils found commonly in the Dundee Hills are rich in clay and hold water well; the chalky, sedimentary soils of Ribbon Ridge, Yamhill-Carlton and McMinnville encourage complex root systems as vines struggle to search for water and minerals. Silty, loess soils are found in the Chehalem Mountains.

Pinot Noir

View all wine

One of the most difficult yet rewarding grapes to grow, Pinot Noir is commonly referred to by winemakers as the “heartbreak grape.” However, the greatest red wines of Burgundy prove that it is unquestionably worth the effort. More reflective than most varieties of the land on which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate, requires low yields to achieve high quality, and demands care in the vineyard and lots of attention in the winery. It is an important component of Champagne and the only variety permitted in red Burgundy. Pinot Noir enjoys immense popularity internationally, most notably in Oregon, California, and New Zealand.

In the Glass

Pinot Noir Is all about red fruit—strawberry, raspberry, and cherry. It is relatively pale in color with soft tannins and lively acidity. It ranges in body from very light to the heavier side of medium, typically landing somewhere in the middle—giving it extensive possibilities for food pairing. With age (of which the best examples can handle an astounding amount), it can develop hauntingly beautiful characteristics of fresh earth, autumn leaves, and truffles.

Perfect Pairings

Pinot’s healthy acidity cuts through the oiliness of pink-fleshed fish like salmon, ocean trout, and tuna. Its mild mannered tannins don’t fight with spicy food, and give it enough structure to pair with all sorts of poultry—chicken, quail, and especially duck. As the namesake wine of Boeuf Bourguignon, it can even match with heavier fare. Pinot Noir is also very vegetarian-friendly—most notably with any dish that features mushrooms.

Sommelier Secret

Pinot Noir is dangerously drinkable, highly addictive, and has a bad habit of emptying the wallet. Look for affordable but still delicious examples from Germany (as Spätburgunder), Italy (as Pinot Nero), Chile, New Zealand, and France’s Loire Valley and Alsace regions.
