Winemaker Notes

Aromas of ripe raspberry, dark cherry, pipe tobacco, orange pekoe tea, and ripe plum. The palate is full and round with flavors of black raspberry, caramel, vanilla, dark plum, and candy cane beets with a long velvety finish.

Pairs well with Veal Osso Bucco, pork fired rice or vegetarian lasagna.

Critical Acclaim

JS 92
James Suckling
This delivers a smooth and creamy impression with lightly spiced, cedary red cherries and a subtly earthy edge. The palate has a very fresh and crunchy feel with assertive oak tannins sitting up at the finish. Needs to settle. Try from 2020.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Medium ruby-purple, the 2016 Pinot Noir Extrovert blossoms slowly on the nose: blackberries, blueberries and black cherries give way to notes of potting soil, tar, dried herbs and floral touches. The palate is concentrated and plushly fruited, firm but juicy and with a long finish. Well done!

WE 92
Wine Enthusiast

Mixed floral aromas of clover and violets open into a mélange of mulberries and blueberries. Sourced principally from YamhillCarlton fruit, this hints gently at earth and stem. Aging 18 months in 40% new French oak adds a lightly toasty note.

WS 90
Wine Spectator

Svelte and well-defined, with appealing cherry and pomegranate flavors, laced with orange peel and cinnamon notes. Drink now through 2025.

Tony Rynders squeezes a full bladder press of cellar cred into his wholly owned new brand, Tendril Wine Cellars. Tony's professional wine experience began in 1989 in the lab at Mirassou. He then went on to graduate from UC Davis in 1993 with a Masters Degree in Viticulture and Enology. Next, off on a world tour of practical experience in Carneros, Friuli, Tuscany and South Australia. Then, assistant winemaker at Argyle in Oregon and red winemaker at Hogue in Washington. All of this finally prepares him for ten years as head winemaker at Domaine Serene where he collected more 90+ scores from Wine Spectator than any other winemaker over the same ten years. In the same period The Wine Advocate named Domaine Serene one of Oregon's two "Outstanding" producers while Wine & Spirits awarded Winery of the Year for five consecutive years. Amazingly, during this time Tony oversaw the growing of Domaine Serene from a 2500 to a 25,000 case super-premium winery.

At Tendril, Tony has taken a deep breath and scaled way back. While quality is at the uncompromising high level one would expect, quantity is limited to around 500 cases per year and to Pinot Noir only. Similar to Mike Januik's story in Washington State, there's hardly a great grower in Oregon who would not be happy to provide Tony with whatever fruit he desires, and the best possible fruit attainable he does indeed get. Though he managed a large cellar staff at Domaine Serene, Tony and assistant winemaker Samantha Poehlman, also a Domaine Serene alum, perform every task at Tendril themselves. The results have been breathtakingly beautiful.

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.
