2016 North Valley (Soter) "Reserve" Williamette Valley Pinot Noir

SKU #1442496 93 points Vinous

 Vivid red. Assertive red berry and incense aromas, along with suggestions of exotic spices, savory herbs and smoky minerals. Sharply focused and racy on entry, then fleshier on the mid-palate, offering vibrant raspberry and bitter cherry flavors that gain sweetness with air. Quite lithe for a warm vintage, with an echo of juicy red fruit lingering the impressively persistent, gently tannic finish. (JR)  (6/2019)

92 points James Suckling

 Some earthy and toasty threads to this youthful, red-fruited pinot. The palate has a very smooth, fleshy array of fine, vibrant red cherries in attractive, open-knit style. Drink now.  (11/2018)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2016 Pinot Noir Reserve is pale to medium ruby-purple with a wonderful open nose of warm cinnamon and cardamom over crisp red and black berries and cherries aromas. Light to medium-bodied, it offers fresh black and red fruit character in the mouth with a strong vein of crushed rock minerality and spicy accents, fine-grained tannins and juicy freshness, finishing long and minerally.

91 points Wine Enthusiast

 Marked by the eight-point compass/starburst label, this reserve balances tart berry with sweet herbs, including hints of plum tomato and anise. The length and detail express the extra care and attention given the wine, which was fermented with 15% whole clusters and aged in 40% new French oak. (PG)  (10/2019)

let me just say if you are someone who is very precise about their wine, they can be assured to get excited and fired up about this pinot Noir. Beautiful aromas of fresh Raspberry, Strawberry and sweet Cherries. On the palate, it shows primary flavors of Dark candied cherry and pomegranate, followed by lush mocha and cocoa powder. The finish is smooth, long and polished.
