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.
92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2008
($60) Medium red color. Zesty red berry aromas quickly give way to darker suggestions of spicy blackberry and blackcurrant. Fresh and precise, with impressive focus to the luscious red and dark berry flavors. Dusty minerality and gentle tannins frame the sweet, sappy berry flavors on the very long, suave, silky finish. This is extremely sexy wine.
