4.5 Vivino Stars!
Single Vineyard, Tiny Production Oregon Pinot Gem!
Cellar-aged boutique-style Pinot Noir from Oregon from grapes farmed at 600-foot elevation in the Dundee Hills AVA.
Maggy Hawk winemaker Sarah Wuethrich pulls no punches—her single-vineyard Pinot Noir reds are gorgeously uncompromising, as this 2018 Jory Hills Vineyard Pinot aptly demonstrates! Crafted from fruit grown at 600-ft. in elevation in Oregon’s Dundee Hills, the prestigious terroir of the Jory Hills comes shining through in powerful waves, providing a fruity California-style spin on the earthy elegance for which Willamette Valley is so justifiably famous. Production is exceptionally small, so Pinot lovers will want to pluck as much of this gem as they can, while they can!
Wine Spectator 94 Points
Outer quote mark Opens with a silky texture and then finds an intense beam of loamy acidity and savory tannins that are framed by spirited cherry and basil blossom accents and build richness and tension on the finish. Drink now through 2029.
Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate 93 Points
Outer quote mark Medium ruby, the 2018 Pinot Noir Jory Hills Vineyard features bright cranberries and blackberries with touches of licorice, charcuterie and dusty earth. The medium-bodied palate is concentrated, savory, earthy and seamlessly framed, finishing very long and spicy. This has a pleasant rusticity that fans of earthier styles will enjoy.
Wine Enthusiast 92 Points
Outer quote mark Smooth, dark and toasty wine. It’s layered with whiffs of smoke, espresso and black licorice, matched with dark fruit flavors of black cherry and cassis. It’s a big, balanced, sexy wine with polished tannins that leave a trail of tobacco highlights.
