Soter Pinot Noir Mineral Springs Willamette 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

If past results are any guide, once the wine critics review Tony Soter's 2010 Pinot Noir Mineral Springs, it will score in the mid-90's. Soter's Pinot's are complex, dark ruby symphony of dry spice, flowers, cherries and dark fruit. Dense but tamed tannin give a rich, and mouth-coating feel and finish. No wonder they're very sought-after and not often found in retail.

Soter Vineyards:
The site of Mineral Springs, located just east of the town of Carlton, is a source of great excitement to us. Planted to 15 acres of Pinot Noir in 2002 and 2003, and 17 acres of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in 2006, this 250-acre ranch is perched on a mesa with gentle slopes, with commanding views of the surrounding Yamhill-Carlton District.

The site of Mineral Springs, located just east of the town of Carlton, is a source of great excitement to us. Planted to 15 acres of Pinot Noir in 2002 and 2003, and 17 acres of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in 2006, this 250-acre ranch is perched on a mesa with gentle slopes, with commanding views of the surrounding Yamhill-Carlton District. As a vineyard site, Mineral Springs has an extremely compelling confluence of prime exposure, and uniform, well-drained, pale sedimentary soils. Imagine half of an upside-down bowl facing due south - here the vines absorb the sun from an ideal aspect, from morning through twilight. Unlike many vineyards with small depressions and moist swales, this is a gentle, highly uniform slope. We have high expectations for the vineyard-designated Pinot Noirs and Sparkling Wine that will eventually emerge from this vineyard. Mineral Springs Vineyard is planted between 380 and 440 feet in elevation. Exposure ranges from southeast to west, with most acreage facing south and southwest. Our soils are crumbly, loamy, pale marine Keasey series sediments such as sandstone and fractured siltstone, mixed with clay. The topsoil layer is rather shallow in many places, and drainage is excellent. Read less

Bright ruby-red. Heady aromas of candied red fruits, incense and cola, with suave floral nuances building in the glass. Offers intense raspberry and cherry flavors and bright blood orange and spicecake qualities, along with a touch of anise. Fine-... Stephen Tanzers IWC.
