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.
93 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2011
Bright ruby-red. Sexy aromas of raspberry, cherry-cola, sassafras and potpourri. Silky in texture and impressively pure, offering sappy red and dark berry flavors and suave floral pastille and spicecake qualities. Gains weight with air and picks up a bitter cherry quality that carries through the long, spicy finish. Balanced to age but also very attractive right now.
