SKU: 44393-2006-1500-3A
  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91

    ($80) Medium red color. Smoky dark berries and cherry-cola on the nose, picking up exotic incense and bacon fat with air. Intense flavors of spiced cherry and blackberry flavors are enlivened by zesty minerality and framed by supple tannins. A plush, suave, alluring wine with excellent finishing sweetness and a late jolt of rooty sassafras.

    Distinctly spicy, with cinnamon and white pepper overtones to the focused red berry and cherry fruit, persisting on the expressive finish and lingering beautifully. Needs time to settle in, but this has the goods to age. 3,548 cases made.

    always detect a little |spritz| in this wine;not unpleasant but distinctive. Good berry flavors and a rich backbone of darker fruit and earth.

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.
