Winemaker Notes

The Reserve is an expression of the highest-quality Pinot Noir from each vintage. Grapes from Montinore's best estate growing sites are fermented and aged separately and assembled after maturation. The 2015 Reserve includes wine from three of the vineyard's most notable blocks: Graham's, Parsons' and Cataclysm. 

A blend of fruits, herbs and spice offer the aromatic prelude, revealing scents of Italian plum, cherry cordial, fresh tobacco leaf, cedar and sage. A silky-smooth palate yields an abundance of wild Oregon berries, red plum, hints of leather and warm baking spice. Balanced interplay between tannin and acid provides a polished, satisfying finish. 

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
V 92
Vinous

Deep brilliant red. Powerful, oak-kissed black raspberry, cherry pit and licorice scents, along with hints of musky earth and cola. Pliant and appealingly sweet, offering smoke-tinged bitter cherry and dark berry flavors that become brighter with air. Finishes smoky, focused and impressively long, featuring a resonating cherry note and mounting tannins.

Montinore Estate is the largest producer of certified estate wines made from Biodynamic® grapes in the country. With our 200-acre Demeter CertifiedBiodynamic® and Stellar Certified Organic vineyard located in north Willamette Valley in Oregon, we focus on producing superior Pinot Noirs, cool climate whites, and fascinating Italian varietals. Our namesake, 200-acre vineyard was planted in 1982 at the northern end of the Willamette Valley appellation and along the east-facing slope of the Coastal Range foothills in Oregon. In addition to the estate being Demeter Certified Biodynamic® and Stellar Certified Organic, we use dry farming and sustainable growing practices. Partner and Chief Viticulturist, Rudy Marchesi, side-by-side with Head Winemaker Stephen Webber, work closely to shepherd the grapes through the evolution from fruit to wine. From harvest dates to fermentation vessels and temperatures, from cultivating our own yeasts to selecting the perfect barrels for aging, each decision is thoughtfully made with one end goal in mind: To craft wines that reflect the place where the grapes are grown, offering freshness, liveliness and complexity, while showcasing the best characteristics of each variety.

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.
