Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 96
James Suckling

Attractive blood orange, red cherry and a spicy, floral edge to the nose here. This has a wealth of fleshy and supple cherry fruit on offer with a spicy thread. Sleek and polished palate with tannins that are finely cast and carry well into the expansive, red cherry-fruited finish. Love the purity here. Drink or hold.

WE 92
Wine Enthusiast
All Pommard clone, this is loaded with herbs and spices, along with smooth red berry fruit. Highlights of rosemary, cinnamon, sea salt and sandalwood add detail, texture and length, and the citrusy tangerine completes a well-balanced finish, along with a touch of chocolate. Enjoy this now and over the next half decade.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
A tense and wiry red, with raspberry, tarragon and black tea flavors speeding toward medium-grained tannins. Drink now through 2027.

Purple Hands Vineyards celebrates site-specific pinot noir and chardonnay that unearth the Willamette Valley’s long evolutionary history. Using traditional winemaking techniques, they strive to produce wines that convey an honest expression of each of their vineyards—its grapevines and cultivation, soil and stone, sunshine and rain. All of their wines undergo native fermentation and remain unfined and unfiltered at bottling to preserve their natural, wild character. Achieving elegance in this pursuit is the passion and art of their craft.

 

Over the past 40 years, Cody’s family has created a legacy of quality in the Oregon wine industry. Their winemaking styles and techniques helped Oregon’s Willamette Valley become the premium Pinot noir producing region in the world. At Purple Hands, Cody continues to build on the standard of excellence initiated by the previous generation.

Home of the first Pinot noir vineyard of the Willamette Valley, planted by David Lett of Eyrie Vineyard in 1966, today the Dundee Hills AVA remains the most densely planted AVA in the valley (and state). To its north sits the Chehalem Valley and to its south, runs the Willamette River. Within the region’s 12,500 acres, about 1,700 are planted to vine on predominantly basalt-based, volcanic, Jory soil.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
