Santa Barbara Independent Wine Review

Wines Northwest by Chuck Hill "Wines of the Week, Pinot Noir and Copper River Salmon"
July 18, 2017

"This rich and flavorful Pinot Noir was crafted from grapes grown at Lazy River Vineyard in the Yamhill-Carlton AVA near the Oregon Coast Range mountains. Winemaker Tony Rynders aged the wine on French oak, 47% new, for 8 months.  A favorite with my tasting panel, the wine offers complex aromas and flavors of black fruits and dark cherry with notes of earthy minerality, blueberry and hints of mocha and spice."


Wines Northwest by Chuck Hill "Wines for Thanksgiving" November 2017

"This wine placed first in a flight of premium Pinot Noirs during my springtime Pinot and Salmon tastings. I heartily recommend it for the red wine lovers at your Thanksgiving table for its rich and complex flavor and character. One caveat: aerate the wine by pouring into a decanter for service, it will open up and give you the full measure of its very high quality."
Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
A collection of earthy fruity goodness reflects the predominately Jory soil with highlights of sedimentary soil. Dark fruit explodes in the front palate, followed by minerality, blue fruit and subtle mocha tones. The rich mouthfeel and smoothness is experienced in the lengthy finish.
94 points, Editors' Choice Wine Enthusiast - Much riper than the previous vintage, this retains those complex aromatics, with cocoa powder, rose petals and chocolate highlights around ripe raspberry and cherry fruit. It is a graceful, precise and delicious wine, buttressed with fresh non-chalky acidity, baking spices and a hint of ginger. The long outstanding finish suggests tucking a few bottles away for enjoyment over the next decade. OUTSTANDING, Great Northwest Wine - "...eight months in 47% new French oak — to keep the focus on that prized fruit. It creates a mood of black currant and plums with a subtext of white pepper, nutmeg and clove. Subtle tannins lead to a delicious and trailing finish of cassis and Marionberry."
