91 points from critic Josh Raynolds (formerly of Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar, now with Vinous), a critic whose palate most closely aligns with ours and who never scores higher than 95: “Aromas of mineral-accented red fruits and blood orange, with deeper cola and licorice nuances emerging as the wine opens with air. Vibrant raspberry and bitter cherry flavors spread out slowly on the palate, picking up a smoky quality on the back half. The long, nervy nish features dusty tannins and a touch of peppery spices.”

From the winery: 

The point of creating this “inner” Chehalem Mountain Appellation Pinot Noir was to take advantage of the three excellent and interesting vineyards we have from this area (we bottled a total of six single vineyard Pinot Noirs from these three sites as well in 2013) and use their clonal diversity and vine ages running from 7th leaf to 21 year old plants as a combined strength. This shows the hallmark characteristic of marine soil sites to a tee. The wine does not lack in the least for richness, texture and mouthfeel however rather than building upon that textural component as Dundee Hill wines tend to do, this wine runs a avor pro le that stands as a counter. The fruit is red fruited, deft and demure and a distinct minerality that ranges from crystalline to saline cuts through and gives the wine clarity and incredible elegance. This wine has the lifted, blossoming aromatics that the 2013 Pinot Noirs provide which, in part, allows them to have unusual enjoyability at such a young age but this wine will age for years and deliver outstanding complexity in its different phases of life.”
