Winemaker Notes

Buoyant aromas of red currant, Luxardo cherry, violets and a hint of balsam reach eagerly for your senses with each swirl. A ripe mouthful of boysenberry and black cherry pass silkily across the tongue; youthful tannins offers flavor persistence and high-toned acidity cleanses before the next sip.

Pair with cheddar and other savory cheeses, rack of lamb, lasagna with bolognese or carbonara sauce, grilled vegetables, and potato-based soups.

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
From a vineyard planted in 1982, the 2015 Pinot Noir Leland Vineyard is pale to medium ruby-purple and opens with notes of brown sugar over warm black cherries and blueberries plus tilled soil and wet leaves suggestions. Medium to full-bodied, it packs in the warm blackcurrants and cherries in the mouth, with layers of potpourri, tree bark and cardamom. It’s got a great firm frame of grainy tannins and very juicy acidity, finishing very long and very spicy.
Rating: 92+

James Suckling

Though the nose is relatively ripe with black cherry essence, vanilla and spices, the palate has real intensity and verve with a sweet-and-sour character, fine tannins, pretty acidity and a fruity finish. 

BH 91
Here the equally pretty if somewhat more restrained and higher-toned nose offers up notes of both red and dark cherry, rose petal and violet. There is a bit more mid-palate concentration to the sappy and caressing medium weight flavors that are also quite pliant but then tighten up on the firm, focused and surprisingly powerful finish. In contrast to the Estate, which could be enjoyed young, this is sufficiently firm and robust to warrant allowing it an extra year or two of cellar time.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
There's plenty of torque at the core of this wine, which offers brooding notes of tart blueberry and cherry, with accents of bay leaf and clove. Tannins tighten the finish. Best after 2018.

Erath Vineyards, Oregon
Erath Vineyards Leland Vineyard Winery Image

As one of Oregon's wine pioneers, Erath winery's founder, Dick Erath, was driven by the belief that the future of Pinot Noir was in Oregon. Today, Erath's wines are an expression of the land that the winery has cultivated for more than 40 years, longer than any other winery in the Dundee Hill of Oregon. Winemaker, Gary Horner, who shares Dick Erath's background in science and a reverence for Oregon's unique terroir, strives to reveal classic Oregon Pinot: light, delicate and fruit-forward. Horner takes pride in making a range of Pinot Noir styles, from the hugely-popular Oregon blend to the highly-acclaimed, limited-edition, single-vineyard selections. His goal is to make the best Pinot Noir the region has to offer - it is time-honored, authentic and uniquely Oregon.

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.
