95 points Wine Advocate: "Extraordinarily perfumed this vintage, with scents of rose petals, Earl Grey tea, lavender and loads of intense black fruits. The palate is arresting, seamless and silky and loaded with perfumed flavors that call you back again and again to the glass. It's one of the loveliest Pinot Noirs I've tasted this vintage from the Willamette Valley.
Expressive bright cherry and dried rose opens up, with delectable blood orange accents. Energetic red fruit and savory ribbons pulse throughout, with depth and power through the finish. Beautiful acidity, tons of dry extract -- this wine will age a decade with ease but hot damn is it drinking well right now. Goodfellow likens it to a Jaguar E-Type convertible: lithe, powerful, sleek, rich, classic. A superb, old vine site in the Dundee Hills, Durant was planted in 1973 and 1993. A stone's throw from the original Eyrie Vineyard, below White Rose, and adjacent to Domaine Drouhin and Archery Summit (not too shabby a neighborhood).. - Marcus
