Winemaker Notes

The wine known as Soter, Mineral Springs Ranch, Pinot Noir (MSR for short) is sourced entirely from the winery property in the Willamette Valley. The 2008 vintage was picked on the 19th of October after an extended growing season allowed complete ripening and physiological fruit development despite a delayed bloom and fruit set. The wine has a lovely deep, garnet hue and presents an uncommonly complex aroma for such a young wine. Suggestions of plum, raspberry and black cherry are intermingled with hints of sandalwood, herbs de provence and more exotic Asian spices. In the mouth, the wine is very silky and lush with the density and depth characteristic of this much anticipated vintage. The vibrant flavors are consistent with the aromas supported by seamless tannins and punctuated by juicy acidity.

RP 95
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2008 Pinot Noir Mineral Springs is even better, coming as it does from one of the Willamette Valley’s greatest vintages. Toasty oak notes, darker fruits, more density and richness, and several years of aging potential are the hallmarks of this brilliantly rendered Pinot. Give it a minimum of 3-4 years of cellaring for it to fully blossom.

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.
