  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 85

    ($50) Bright red. Slightly stewy aromas of raspberry, redcurrant and oak. Moderately dense and thick, but needs more definition. The red fruit flavors come across as slightly cooked, but a menthol note also suggests uneven ripeness.

  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 88

    On the lean side, with a component reminiscent of cooked beets along with peppery red cherry and cinnamon flavors, which linger.

  • 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.
