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 Read more »

Coffee, Cherry Cola and chocolate greet the tongue in a very well balanced and structured manner; a sybaritic pleasure to be sure. Soft tannins with some toasty vanilla and a long finish. A top-notch wine made from a blend of different blocks.Tasted a... Read More
