Professional Reviews For This Wine

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90(+?)

($75) Deep red. Pungent red and dark berry aromas are complicated by black cardamom, cinnamon, cola and mocha. Fleshy cassis and black raspberry flavors are firmed by dusty tannins and given a serious mien by hints of dried flowers and graphite. Some unabsorbed CO2 dissipated with aeration. Finishes gently spicy but with impressive energy and focus.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 93

Firm in texture at first, but then blossoms into a panorama of flavors, fanning out its raspberry cream flavors and hinting at floral, mineral, green tea and Asian spice notes as the finish picks up steam. Not a big wine, but has many layers to explore. 2,700 cases made.

About This Producer

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.
