About Soter Vineyards
Tony Soter made his name with Cabernet Sauvignon in California at Spottswoode, as well as with his own Etude label. But to show he was serious about Oregon Pinot Noir, he relocated to the Willamette Valley. The time and energy he's devoted to the vineyard is evident in his intensely fruity, layered Pinots that do not sacrifice balance or focus for power.

($48) Medium red with a bright rim. Intensely spicy, dark cherry-dominated aroma, with notes of black cardamom, gunpowder tea and licorice. This has terrific focus for a wine from a hot vintage. Powerful and quite dense, with concentrated flavors of bitter cherry, dark plum and exotic spices. Finishes impressively long, on a rich, emphatic note of dark cherry.
