Winemaker 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.

Wine & Spirits
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.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2011 Pinot Noir Elizabeth's Reserve has a lovely bouquet with great transparency - strawberry pastilles, red cherries, bergamot and rose petals. There is very fine Pinoté here. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red berry fruit, a keen thread of acidity, plenty of tart cherry fruit with fine mineralité on the finish. Very fine indeed - this is a Pinot Noir that has more to give.

Home of some of the planet’s most amazingly elegant and expressive Pinot noir, the Willamette Valley is a pastoral, mixed landscape of green, bucolic rolling hills, dramatic forestlands and small, independent, friendly wine growers. As a leader in environmental stewardship, the valley has some of the nation’s most protective land use policies, with two-thirds of its vineyards farmed sustainably and over half, organically. While the valley claims a cool, continental climate, and is heavily influenced by the cold, moist winds of the Pacific Ocean, its warm and dry summers allow for the steady, even ripening of Pinot noir.

The potential of Willamette Valley Pinot noir continues to attract the investment of serious growers and winemakers both locally and from abroad, as naturally the finished wines bring accolades from professionals and enthusiasts. With a range of styles from delicate dried cherry, raspberry and hibiscus to stronger notes of truffle, mocha, plum and spice, a fine Willamette Valley Pinot noir is a perfect expression of both character and grace.
