Soter Vineyards, Mineral Springs Ranch Pinot Noir

Merchant's Pick

Soter Vineyards, Mineral Springs Ranch Pinot Noir
98 pt | Highly Prized Oregon Pinot!
November 16, 2017
ARRIVING NOVEMBER 27TH

Soter's single vineyard "Mineral Springs Ranch" is regarded as the Grand Cru of the Willamette Valley. Each year, just before the holidays, a tiny amount of this exclusive Pinot Noir is released. Reserve yours today!

Oregon has experienced back-to-back sensational vintages in both 2014 and 2015. If you missed Soter's 2014 Mineral Springs Ranch (in which the wine received the same staggering 98 points) here is your second bite at the apple.

Soter's Mineral Springs Ranch is an exclusive Pinot Noir vineyard operated as a sustainable farm. Superb exposure, elevation, drainage and the cool North-western Oregon climate create consistently great wines. Natural springs, sandstone and siltstone provide minerality and nuance only found in the finest of Grand Cru red Burgundies.

"Tons of pressed violets and lavender as well as blueberries, plenty of herbs, cedar, almonds and acacia come through on the nose, before ginseng, ivy and slate kick in. The palate is so structured with intense yet velvety tannins and layers of fruit and spices. Such tension in terms of the fine acidity but intensely full-bodied. A great wine that will age for decades." J. Suckling

Delicious any time of year - but in particular the holiday season - enjoy this Willamette Valley wonder!
