Panther Creek Pinot Noir Willamette Valley Reserve 1999

Winemaker's Notes:

This is a hard-to-find example of a wonderfully mature Oregon Pinot from one of the top producers. 1999 was a very good year, character-ized by a cool summer followed by a warm, dry early fall. The grapes got a lot of extra hang-time and it shows in the fruit and concentration. The wine is beautifully complex with aromas of blackberries, cherries, jasmine and earth. It shows no signs of getting 'tired' after almost 8 years

Panther Creek wines are Oregon's most beautifully packaged and also the most concentrated and ageworthy wines now being made in Oregon... Panther Creek has established itself as one of the most consistent, high quality Oregon wineries. - Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate Panther Creek Cellars, located in McMinnville, Oregon, has been producing ultra-premium Pinot noir since 1986. Our wines are made from grapes grown at some of Oregon's finest vineyards. Our goal in making Panther Creek wine is simple. We want each wine to express the personality of its vintage and character of its vineyard as clearly as possible. We believe that this expressiveness is the essence of great Oregon Pinot noir. Every Panther Creek wine is unique. We believe that Pinot noir is at its best when it is encouraged to develop characteristics particular to where and when it was grown. We work very hard to create a limited production of well made wines whose individual personalities are able to shine. Gentle handling of the grapes at all phases of production is paramount in the crafting of great Pinot noir. From the time the clusters are hand harvested to the moment the finished wine is bottled, we strive to preserve the inherent character of each vineyard and vintage. Balance is a hallmark of world class Pinot noir and we want our wines to exhibit a complex concentration of flavors and aromas without sacrificing elegance and beauty. Our wines are crafted to complement a variety of foods, as well as be enjoyed on their own. We believe that great Pinot noir can be enjoyed as a young, fresh wine that showcases ripe, sweet fruit, as well as an older, mature wine that features unparalleled complexity and beauty. Read less
