Winemaker Notes

Aromas of wild blackberry, menthol and berry cordial. Primary flavors of italian plum, and smoked jam, with hints of black licorice and fresh hickory.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 95
James Suckling

Beautifully fresh and complex with very fragrant, violet-like aromas, together with blueberries, cocoa, red cherries, oyster shell, a swathe of fresh herbs and much, much more. The palate offers a very succulent, focused sense of power and a long, chiseled feel that carries blueberries and red cherries very long and very fresh. Try from 2023.


WS 93
Wine Spectator

Harmonious and elegantly layered, with raspberry, violet and savory spice accents that dance toward polished tannins. Drink now through 2028.

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Pale to medium ruby-purple, the 2017 Pinot Noir Mineral Springs Ranch, from biodynamically farmed grapes, is scented of cinnamon stick, autumn leaves, rose petal and bergamot with touches of fragrant earth, charcuterie and a core of ripe raspberry, strawberry and rhubarb. It’s medium-bodied and silky textured, walking a nice line between bright fruit and savory flavors, finishing fresh and long. This will benefit from another year in bottle. Rating : 92+

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.”
