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.
90 Points | International Wine Cellar , July/August 2014
Vivid red. Fresh red and dark berry aromas are spiced up by white pepper and clove. On the palate, juicy raspberry, floral pastille and licorice flavors are lifted by tangy acidity. Silky and seamless on the incisive finish, which is firmed by taut, fine-grained tannins that fade smoothly into the wine's juicy fruit. An outstanding effort, especially for an entry-level bottling.
