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.

91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - April 2008

($45; disgorged in the spring of 2007) Orange-pink with a vigorous mousse. Impressively complex bouquet offers smoky peach, redcurrant and floral qualities. Deep, fleshy and broad on the palate, with ripe orchard fruit and red berry flavors. There's nothing heavy about this, but the flavors are strikingly intense. Serve this substantial sparkling wine with lighter meat dishes or strong cheeses.

2003 Soter Brut Rose Review
by Mac Neil12979302
A pleasant surprise. The peach and guava notes are influenced by a peppery, smoky finish. The finish is strong, it is a sparkling wine that has additional distance to go before it hits peak.
