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 | International Wine Cellar , July/August 2012
Deep, bright red. Intensely perfumed bouquet evokes candied raspberry and cherry, with smoke and Asian spice topnotes. Ripe and lively, offering energetic red and dark berry flavors that put on weight with air. Silky tannins build on the long, sweet, floral-accented finish. I've little doubt that this wine will reward cellaring but I find it awfully appealing right now.
