Winemaker Notes

The 2012 Yamhill Cuvée offers an alluring nose rich with aromas of Bing Cherry, blackberry, and sarsaparilla. The aromas carry through on the palate and burst with intense fruit that iscompletely integrated with playful tannins, finishing with spicy notes. The textural profile is refined, silky, persistent and incredibly pleasing for any occasion.

Critical Acclaim

D 95
Decanter
Unquestionably one of the most exciting wines I tasted at the Decanter Fine Wine Encounter. This is a blend of four different Pinor Noir vineyards in the Dundee Hills, Eola-Amity Hills and Yamhill-Carlton AVAs. Only 1,800 bottles were produced in 2011.

The nose is floral, pure and perfumed with violets and raspberries vying for attention. In the mouth, it is delicate and fine but has an extraordinary intensity of flavours encompassing, incense, wild strawberries, toffee and cream. Completing the picture are ultra-fine tannins and delicious acidity and length. A class act.

JS 93
James Suckling
Gorgeous pinot with dried strawberry and spice character. Full body, soft tannins, and remains fresh and lively. Lovely combination of ripe fruit and acidity. Drink or hold.
WE 92
Wine Enthusiast
This cuvée offers the pleasures of sweet, sappy red fruits, soft tannins and broad swaths of caramel, toasted hazelnuts and mocha. It coats the tongue with flavor and has a sort of insistence that the next sip will be even better.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Bright and lively, light and tangy, with raspberry and cranberry notes most prominent on the sleek, cleanly defined frame. Has presence and lingers well.

Willamette Valley

Pinot Noir

View all wine

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 organic. While the valley technically 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 power and grace.
