Winemaker Notes

The "classic" representation of Willamette Valley Pinot Noir, this wine encapsulates the experience, innovation, top vineyard sources, and expertise of the pioneering Ponzi family. Among the first to make Pinot Noir in Oregon and the United States and, since the start, among the very best.

Aromas of ripe raspberry and black cherry are accentuated by crushed Mediterranean herbs of lavender, sage, rosemary and black tea. On the palate, dusty tannins are woven into hints of roasted coffee. Mouthwatering acidity is balanced by almond sweetness.

Pair with coq au vin. This Burgundian dish is almost synonymous with Pinot Noir! Chicken is simmered with mushrooms, red wine, lardons (bits of pork fat), onion and garlic. The acidity of the wine cuts through the fat of the dish and creates a nice texture in the mouth. A Pinot with a bit of earthiness will complement the flavors of the mushrooms, onion, and garlic and will not, of course, compete with the red wine in the sauce.

Critical Acclaim

WE 92
Wine Enthusiast
This relatively new mid-level Pinot Noir is a mix of estate and purchased grapes aged for almost a year in one third new oak barrels. It's firm, compact and juicy, with red fruit set in an aromatic frame of crushed raspberry, lavender and thyme notes.
TP 92
Tasting Panel

Crisp and tangy with sweet cherry and spice; a balanced and long blend of grapes from 11 vineyards throughout Willamette Valley; another winner from one of Oregon’s mainstays.

RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Pale to medium ruby-purple in color, the 2015 Pinot Noir Classico has an open nose of dried cranberries and black cherries with cardamom, floral perfume and spicy touches. Light to medium-bodied, it offers warm red and black fruits and spicy layers, with dusty, grainy tannins and mouthwatering acidity, finishing very long and spicy.
