  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 89

    ($45) Bright ruby-red. Aromatic nose of raspberry, black cherry, mint and Valrhona chocolate. Thick and suave, with raspberry and cola flavors enlivened by harmonious acidity. Finishes long, sappy and spicy, with dusty tannins and an impression of youthful tautness.

  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 90

    Supple and flavorful, offering spice-scented red raspberry and currant flavors that ride smoothly and elegantly on the fine-grained tannins through a long finish.

  • Self | Rating: 90

    Good mature pinot. Nice purity, well-balanced. More on the floral side. Decent finish.

The Beaux Freres estate property, an old pig farm, is 24 acres of tightly-spaced, low-yielding vines on the steep slopes of Ribbon Ridge in Northern Willamette Valley. Winemaking philosophy and technique follow a commitment to minimal intervention, with native yeast fermentations and only one racking prior to bottling. All the wines are unfined and unfiltered. The wine remains in French oak for a period of 10-12 months, in varying proportions of new wood depending on the strength of the vintage. Because of the "reductive" winemaking style, which keeps the wine away from oxygen as much as possible, Beaux Freres Pinots are made for bottle age. The end result is a true expression of prime Willamette terrior.

Oregon has seen a huge boom in wine production in recent decades, as has the entire Pacific Northwest region. Once known for small wineries nestled amongst farmland, the Oregon wine industry has been the recipient of a huge capital influx, which has opened up new vine-growing territory and built numerous large-production brands. Although best known for Pinot Noir from the Willamette Valley, which sits at the same latitude as Burgundy, the state continues to build a reputation for Rhône and white varieties as well.
