New Wine Spectator 94-point Oregon Pinots

Wine Spectator Insider dropped some stellar reviews on Willamette Valley Pinot noirs this morning. The winery that fared the best was Purple Hands, with a trio of 94s and a Hot Wine designation.

Purple Hands proprietor and winemaker is Cody Wright (son of Ken Wright); he crafts rich and expressive Pinots from several top-notch vineyards. We tasted Cody's 2015s recently and believe them to be his strongest line-up yet. They're already showing well, too!  

Purple Hands Latchkey Vineyard Pinot noir 2015

$44.95 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($49.95 regular) 

94 points Wine Spectator, Hot Wine: "Silky and harmonious, with an elegantly precise structure and black cherry, fresh violet and spice notes that glide expressively toward the long finish. Drink now through 2022." 

Purple Hands Stoller Vineyard Pinot noir 2015

$44.95 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($49.95 regular) 

94 points Wine Spectator: "Supple, expressive and vibrant, with rose petal, raspberry and stony mineral aromas and elegantly layered flavors that glide sleekly toward a refined finish. Drink now through 2023." 

Purple Hands Holstein Vineyard Pinot noir 2015

$44.95 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($49.95 regular) 

94 points Wine Spectator: "Vibrant and rich, offering complex savory cherry and pepper notes that play against loamy minerality as this flows toward refined tannins on the finish. Drink now through 2023."
