Winemaker Notes

This Estate Pinot Noir exemplifies the “Oregon style” even with the vintage being the warmest on record. Complex aromas of black cherry, dried herbs, floral and spice create an alluring nose. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied with a silky mouthfeel and flavors of blackberry, bergamot, anise and cedar. Exceptionally balanced with velvety tannins, lively acidity and a lingering finish. Peak drinkability 2018-2021.

This wine will pair beautifully with classic Pinot Noir dishes including Oregon lamb, duck, pork, grilled salmon and aged cheeses

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The pale to medium ruby-purple 2016 Pinot Noir Estate has a wonderful open nose of black cherry, blueberry pie, cinnamon stick, nutmeg, warm earth and autumn leaves with pretty red and blue flower perfume. Light to medium-bodied, it fills the mouth with black and blue fruits layers plus oodles of spice and flower notes, with fine, grainy tannins and mouthwatering acidity, finishing very long and layered.

Wine Enthusiast
A pleasing bouquet of violets, cherries and cola introduces this wine. The fruit shines on the palate, with flavors of mixed red and blue berries. The balance is spot on and the wine is ready for near-term enjoyment.

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

The “budwood” of Willamette Valley Vineyards began long before its founding in 1983 by vintner Jim Bernau. His Dad was hired by a California winemaker to secure the first winery license in Oregon since Prohibition. Jim’s Dad allowed him small tastes of Richard Sommer’s wine, lighting a path that led Jim from home winemaking to studies at UC Davis and eventually Beaune, France.

In 1983, Jim cleared away an old pioneer plum orchard in the Salem Hills and hand-watered his first plantings using 17 lengths of 75’ garden hose.

Jim's vision of organizing the support of wine enthusiasts to build a winery that would produce world-class wines through shared ownership has resulted in more than 16,000 owners. The winery's Common (WVVI) and Preferred (WVVIP) are traded on the NASDAQ. 

The winery sources all of its barrel-aged Pinot Noir from its estate vineyards and practices environmentally sustainable farming. All of the vineyards have been certified sustainable through LIVE (Low Impact Viticulture and Enology) and Salmon-Safe programs since 1997.

Pinot Noir

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.
