The 2009 Pinot Noir Willamette Valley is deep and vibrant, with brilliant color and excellent clarity. Aromatically, the wine is quite open, even opulent with a mix of velvety rose petals, violets and spices. On the palate, the texture is lush and mouth-coating, but well-balanced. Together, they provide definition and intensity, followed by refined, silky tannins. The finish is quite long, with beautiful cherry notes, reminding me of fresh cobbler in the peak of summer. While the 2009 will age quite well, it is to my personal taste, delicious to drink today.

Wine Spectator

Firm in texture, with a grip of tannins around generous red berry, tobacco and floral flavors, which persist into the lively, deftly balanced finish. Drink now through 2017. 10,490 cases made.

Score: 90. —Harvey Steiman, February 29, 2012.

Wine Advocate

The 2009 Pinot Noir Willamette Valley has alluring notes of cedar, cinnamon, clove, raspberry, and cherry that inform the nose of a ripe, supple-textured, elegant, nicely proportioned wine that will provide enjoyment over the next 6-7 years.

Score: 90. —Jay Miller, October 2011.
