Winemaker Notes

Initial aromatics of salted caramel and dark chocolate lead to deep and diverse notes of paprika, fig, graphite, oyster shell, cedar, clove and nutmeg laced with beautiful floral wafts of violet and dried rose petal. The palate is seamless with flavors of bittersweet chocolate, ancho and candied citrus. The finish is long with chalky tannins.

Critical Acclaim

WE 94
Wine Enthusiast

Smooth and silky, this lovely reserve is loaded with ripe plum and cherry fruit. Barrel aging (20 months in 30% new French oak) brings cedar, nutmeg and chocolate notes. There's a pinch of pepper also, as it winds gracefully through a long finish.

Editor's Choice

WS 93
Wine Spectator
Polished and structured, featuring vibrant raspberry and cherry flavors, accented by orange peel and savory spice notes that build richness toward refined tannins. Drink now through 2026.
JS 93
James Suckling

This has bright, punchy aromas of cassis and ripe dark cherries with anise and forest-wood notes. The palate offers a very vibrant core of fine tannins that is set in stony, fine style and delivers a savory, long and elegant finish. Drink or hold.


RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Pale to medium ruby-purple, the 2016 Pinot Noir Reserve has slowly blossoming scents of cured meats, pink peppercorn, warm earth and dried herbs and flowers with red currant, cranberry and blackberry fruit and a streak of sweet spices. The medium-bodied palate is uber silky and granular with juicy freshness and a long finish. This is approachable now but will benefit from another couple of years in bottle. This was aged 20 months in 30% new French oak.

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.
