I love this wine. Succulent, savory, sweet and broad red fruits — the perfect summer strawberry adding to the classic raspberry love bomb of Ladd Hill — are joined by touches of lavender and mint. There’s so much to fawn over right there but wait, there’s more! The super-silky flow of it, the effortless, elegant weight, the pure Pinot sweetness so masterfully on display, clinging to your senses. I love it as a young wine and know it will be better after a few years of cellaring, with a potential for well over a decade of enjoyment.
Ladd Hill boasts some of the Valley’s oldest vines, planted in 1976 and farmed by McKinlay. It is a hidden treasure of Oregon wine.
