Winemaker Notes

Aromas of wild blackberry, mint, and berry cordial. Primary flavors of Italian plum and smoked jam and secondary flavors of black licorice and fresh hickory. The lingering finish has grip and depth.

Wine Enthusiast

This is sourced from the biodynamic estate vineyard, and it is a vivid synthesis of wild blackberry, mint, tarragon, anise and other spring herbs. Subtle, lengthy and detailed, it finishes with fine tannins and considerable length.

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2016 Pinot Noir Mineral Springs Ranch is pale to medium ruby-purple in color with a youthfully reticent nose of pulverized stone, delicate blue flower, dried leaves, cola and black fruits. Light to medium-bodied and still tightly coiled in the mouth, with a strong vein of crushed rock minerality, it’s just beginning to give up some ripe black fruits and spicy accents with firm, fine-grained tannins and plenty of freshness, finishing very long and minerally with lots of nerve. Give this a year or two in bottle or consider a decant.

Willamette Valley

Yamhill-Carlton, characterized by pastoral, rolling hills composed of shallow, quick-draining, ancient marine soil, is ideal for Pinot noir and other cool-climate-loving varieties. It is in the rain shadow of the Coast Range to its west, whose highest point climbs to an altitude of 3,500 feet. Yamhill-Carlton is actually surrounded by mountains on three sides: Chehalem Mountains to the north, the Dundee Hills to the east and the western Coast Range to its west, which, when it lets Pacific air through, serves to cool the region.

Vineyards grow on the ridges surrounding the two small communities of Yamhill and Carlton and cover about 1,200 acres of this 60,000 acre region, which roughly makes a horse-shoe shape on a map.

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.”
