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.

Soter Vineyards is the culmination of Tony Soter's life-long study in viticulture and winegrowing. Settled at Mineral Springs Ranch in the Yamhill-Carlton District of the Willamette Valley, Tony and his family invite you to experience this place they regard as a haven for raising exceptional Oregon Pinot Noir and sparkling wines.

A large and diverse wine region in northeastern Italy, the Veneto is home to a vast array of different styles of wine. With no defining regional characteristics, it can be a bit confusing to the general consumer to parse through its many subzones, but the patient wine lover will find many treasures to be discovered here, typically at wallet-friendly prices. Red and white wines are produced here, with more emphasis on the latter, as well as the ultra-popular sparkling wine Prosecco. The region is sheltered from harsh northern European winters by the Alps, which form its northern border, but the climate is still relatively cool, making the Veneto ideal for white wine production.

Much of Italy’s Pinot Grigio hails from the Veneto, where it can range from neutral and inoffensive to crisp and refreshing. Soave, made primarily from the Garganega grape, has a reputation for producing relatively ordinary, bulk wines, but can be very elegant when yields are carefully monitored, with aromas of lemon, almond, and white flowers. Valpolicella is the region’s best-known red wine, with juicy, tart red cherry flavors derived from the Corvina grape. Recioto and Amarone wines made from dried grapes are a regional specialty and can be very intense, heady, and cerebral.
