A Merchant's Pick

THE REVIEW

Last year, we were just about to send the Rex Hill Pinot Noir as a featured Merchant's Pick when Wine Spectator announced its annual Top 100 list which included this stellar red. All our inventory disappeared and we never got a chance to highlight the wine. We made a note to get an early jump on the next vintage and - WOW - it is a stunner!
    We've just tasted the 2010 and we can already see the writing on the wall. This wine is on the fast track to this year's Top 100 list again. Regardless of whether or not it makes Spectator's list, it certainly solidified a spot on ours. Here's why:
    Rex Hill is a classic example of Oregon Pinot Noir from a vintage that boasts intense fruit and intense flavors. Wonderful aromatics of Bing cherries, ripe raspberries, huckleberries, pomegranate, violets sandalwood, earth and wood smoke develop into deeper notes of coffee, tobacco, cloves, black fruit and soft leather. The palate intrigues with red, blue and black fruit flavors, spice and minerals framed by delicate, ripe tannins. This wine has the intensity, structure and concentration to enjoy now and over the next ten years.
    Rex Hill is one of Oregon's crown jewels. Pair with a warm spinach and sauteed mushroom salad followed by grilled wild Chinook Salmon lightly seasoned with salt and pepper. Delicious! Read More »
