Soter Vineyards Pinot Noir North Valley Willamette Valley 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Our diverse vineyard sites provided grapes with ample sweetness and fine acidity in 2009, resulting in an aromatically engaging wine marked by lush fruit and soft, silken mouth feel. Red fruits are predominant showcasing wild cherry, raspberry and marionberry with intriguing savory undertones hinting at tarragon and clove. Bright acidity preserves the wine's inherent sleekness and overall charm.

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

Fresh and polished with currant plum and dusky spice flavors of modest intensity finishing with tangy balance. Stylish and lively. Drink now through 2017. HS Wine Spectator.

Ripe and juicy dark berries dominate the nose and the palate. Complexity is added with a mineral note. Well balanced with a velvety mouthfeel.
