Robert Parker scores our 2016 Pinot Noirs

The August 2018 Robert Parker included some great reviews for Pike Road Pinot Noirs with 92 points awarded to our Shea Vineyard Pinot Noir and 90 points for our flagship Willamette Valley Pinot Noir!

Here are the reviews:

2016 Pinot Noir

"90 POINTS. Pale to medium ruby-purple, the 2016 Pinot Noir gives up warm black cherries and blackcurrants on the nose with tilled earth and potpourri notions. Light to medium-bodied, it offers good concentration of black fruits in the mouth, with fine-grained tannins and mouthwatering acidity, finishing long with some spicy accents. Delicious and a great value." - Erin Brooks

Also noteworthy is the reviews for our 2016 Single Vineyard Pinot Noirs:

2016 Shea Vineyard Pinot Noir

"92 POINTS. Pale to medium ruby-purple in color, the 2016 Pinot Noir Shea Vineyard has wild blackberries and black cherries on the nose with great floral perfume and earthy touches of mushroom and wet leaves. Light to medium-bodied, it has great concentration of warm black fruits in the mouth with touches of violet and cardamom, a good frame of grainy tannins and juicy, mouthwatering acidity, finishing very long with earthy/spicy accents." - Erin Brooks

 

2016 Zenith Vineyard Pinot Noir

"90 POINTS. The 2016 Pinot Noir Zenith Vineyard is pale to medium ruby-purple in color with a nose of warm black cherries, boysenberry preserves, tilled soil, raspberry leaves and violets. Light to medium-bodied, it gives good concentration of black and blue fruits in the mouth, with firm tannins and mouthwatering acidity, finishing long and spicy."- Erin Brooks

2016 Fairsing Vineyard Pinot Noir

"89+ POINTS. Pale to medium ruby-purple, the 2016 Pinot Noir Fairsing Vineyard is a little youthfully shy on the nose, opening to black fruits, dried blue flowers and notions of tilled earth. Light to medium-bodied and black fruited in the mouth,it has firm, grainy tannins and good freshness, finishing long." - Erin Brooks

 

2016 Xander Taryn Pinot Noir

"89 POINTS. Pale to medium ruby-purple, the 2016 Pinot Noir Xander Taryn Vineyard gives dried red and black cherries on the nose with notions of tilled soil and wet leaves. Light to medium-bodied, it's black fruited in the mouth with firm, grainy tannins and good freshness, finishing long with earthy accents." - Erin Brooks
