Burghound | Rating: 88A complex nose of briar, cranberry, underbrush and plum merge into supple, forward and surprisingly easy flavors that are delicious and more persistent than the mid-palate impact would suggest. While this attractive effort could be aged for a few years, it is already quite approachable.Drink Dates: 2008+Author: Allen MeadowsIssue: 4th Quarter, 2007

Recognized as one of the top producers in the Pacific Northwest, St. Innocent focuses primarily on vineyard-designated Pinot Noir, with Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, and Pinot Blanc rounding out the portfolio. The winery was founded in 1988 by winemaker and president Mark Vlossak with the intent of producing terroir-specific bottlings that "complement and extend the pleasure of a meal." 2007 marked the first vintage for St, Innocent in a new gravity-flow winery, and just a year prior the first vineyard land was purchased, a portion of the Zenith Vineyard in Eola-Amity Hills. Total production is 6,800 cases.
