The 2008 Grande Cuvée Pinot Noir delivers suave aromas of macerated cherries, blackcurrant, spices and cigar box. The flavors are fresh and juicy, showing ripe black cherries and cassis, framed by a long spicy aftertaste with a vibrant structure. Enjoy this complex yet easily approachable wine now or cellar for up to 7 years. Pairs well with Northwest-inspired cuisine, like salmon, duck or mushrooms.

Wine Spectator

Ripe and generous, offering a big mouthful of blackberry and blueberry flavors on a refined, deftly balanced frame, this is broad without a lot of weight. A hint of mineral character adds something extra to the finish. Best from 2012 through 2018. 2,500 cases made.

Score: 91. —Harvey Steiman, December 31, 2010.

Wine Enthusiast

Compiled from a half dozen vineyards scattered throughout the northern Willamette Valley. Firm, sculpted and dense, this has more grip and depth than might be expected at this price point. Each vineyard's grapes were separately fermented; the blending has pulled them all together with dark, plummy flavors, notes of raisin, baking spices and caramel, and a smooth, penetrating finish.

Score: 89. —Paul Gregutt, March 01, 2011.

Wine Advocate

The new releases begin with the 2008 Pinot Noir Grand Cuvee which spent 13 months in 16% new oak. Dark ruby in color, it displays a pleasant perfume of earth/underbrush, spice box, violets, black cherry, and black raspberry. Medium-bodied, dense and nicely packed with succulent fruit, it has enough structure to provide pleasure for another 6-8 years. It is an excellent value.

Score: 89. —Jay Miller, October 2010.
