Winemaker Notes

The nose is a melding of dark fruits and earthiness, yet is highlighted and amplified by a fascinating, almost floral perfume. The body of the wine is as ample and complex as the nose. Great concentration of fruit - dark cherries, Italian plums, blackberries, followed by a distinct and complementary earthiness that has hints of fine pipe tobacco, leather, and dark chocolate. The palate exhibits truly remarkable structure, highlighted by a luxurious array of fine tannins and a satisfying core of acid that leads into a powerful, long finish.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2012 Pinot Noir Mineral Springs Ranch White label comes from the upper reaches of the estate's vineyard. It includes 30% whole-cluster fruit and is aged in 50% new French oak. It has a gorgeous bouquet with beautifully integrated rose-petal scents. The palate is medium-bodied with a noticeable chocolate element on the entry (probably originating from the oak), harmonious and tender in the mouth with a long concentrated finish. It is still very backward, but I can imagine it drinking extremely well in 4 or 5 years time.

Wine Spectator
Firm in texture, with expressive blueberry, black currant and smoky spice flavors welling up nicely and persisting into a lively finish. Best from 2017 through 2022.

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.
