“North Valley Pinot Noir sees less new oak than the flagship wines. It is made in a more accessible and versatile format that will give pleasure early and over the medium term. The wine features notes of orange blossoms, cranberries, blackberries, sweet cream, cocoa, minerals, and has a markedly silky and supple mouthfeel. Long and lush, the wine leaves big, thick tears in the glass and its soft entry invites sip after sip. Pour this wine alongside its peers at the same price – you’ll be taken in by its winsome charms and remarkable price/quality rapport. Better yet, pour it against your favorite single-vineyard Oregon Pinot, and understand why North Valley is already featured at some of the finest restaurants in the country.”

James Suckling – 93 Points

This takes a savory stance and bends in style more towards the Soter estate wines, in terms of having a more reserved style. Dark cherries and spicy oak here with forest wood and a blueberry to red-cherry core of flavor with attractively structured tannins. Drink or hold
