Editorial Reviews for Winter's Hill Vineyard Pinot Noir Willamette Valley
This is full of forest floor, stem, mushroom and light cherry fruit paired with faint baking spice. It’s a lovely, fresh and complex nose. In the mouth this has a lovely richness, feeling absolutely round and almost lush on the palate. The flavors of fresh berry fruit and wonderful and paired with great inner mouth perfumes of mushroom, beetroot, sage, and cherry candy. There is a really nice structural tension in the mouth as well, to the point that you don’t even notice the acidity or the tannins until you look for them. There’s a black cherry medicinal tone on the backend, and the succulent tannins add a hint of refreshing astringency and some stemmy tones that lead to a long, layered, fruit driven and spice toned finish. Wonderful pinot, richly flavored with a lovely texture. 92pts
Wonderfully complex, earthy, fungal nose with plenty of ripe cherry fruit and baking spices. The palate is brightly acidic and fruity, mostly lead by fresh cherries and strawberries, and framed by well integrated autumn spiced oak and a bit of tar and eucalyptus on the finish. Great wine.
Interesting yet lovely nose for a pinot. Red liquorish dominates with a bit of prune tossed in there. Medium bodied and delicate with prune and black cherries, earth, an a touch of cedar. Silky mouthfeel but goes out with a zing of baking spice. Nothing short of amazing.
Very rich nose, spicy, fruity, and vegetative. Cured meats, anise, and caraway stand out in particular. The body is strongly acidic, and apple and pineapple come across with great strength. Interesting and balanced.
My second run-in with this wine. Light earthy nose with faint tar. Delicate, complex, and still detect that touch of cedar. Really great elegant complex pinot.
