Winemaker Notes

This wine is both elegant and intense, exemplifying the "Oregon style." Alluring aromas of fresh red cherries, marionberries, herbs de provence, lavender and orange peel lead with notes of truffles, mint and black tea intertwined. On the palate, the wine is generous and full-bodied for the vintage. Flavors of ripe strawberries, game and wood spice are accented by an integrated oak profile. It is exceptionally balanced with lively acidity, silky tannins and a persistent finish. Appealing now but will further reward those who cellar this wine.

Critical Acclaim

RP 89
The Wine Advocate

Representing as usual a high-volume blend drawing from most if not all of WVV’s vineyards, their 2011 Pinot Noir Estate delivers vintage-typically tart red currant surprisingly allied to an almost caressingly polished palate, with a buoyancy borne of under-12.5% alcohol and an intriguingly and delightfully saliva-inducing savor of veal stock emerging on a downright refreshing finish. This lovely Pinot will probably gain further interest over the next couple of years and serve well through at least 2016.

Willamette Valley Vineyards
A combination of determination and extraordinary people has brought Willamette Valley Vineyards from an idea to one of the region's leading wineries, earning the title "One of America's Great Pinot Noir Producers," from Wine Enthusiast Magazine.

Founder, Jim Bernau, purchased the Estate site in 1983 and cleared away the old pioneer plum orchard hidden in scotch broom and blackberry vines. He planted Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Gris. In the beginning, he hand watered the vines with seventeen lengths of 75' garden hose.

Numerous classes at UC Davis, and seminars from here to France, sharpened Jim’s viticultural skills and in 1989 he was ready to build his dream--a world class winery in the Willamette Valley--and make cool-climate varietals, especially Pinot Noir.

Jim's vision of organizing the support of wine enthusiasts to grow world-class wines through shared ownership has resulted in over 9,000 owners. The winery's Common (WVVI) and Preferred (WVVIP) are traded on the NASDAQ.

Willamette Valley Vineyards has collaboratively grown its estate vineyards through partnerships like the merger with Oregon wine industry pioneer, Bill Fuller of Tualatin Vineyards (established in 1973), the O'Briens for Elton Vineyard (established in 1983) and Loeza Vineyard (planted in 2016). The winery now sources all of its barrel-aged Pinot Noir from its estate vineyards, practices environmentally sustainable farming and were part of the founding of the Low Input Viticulture and Enology (LIVE) certification.
