Reviews and Ratings

Taylor rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

At an affordable price of around $20, this wine delivers true value and quality. The grapes are sourced from throughout the state of Oregon, thus the “Oregon” designation on the label. It has well-defined and upfront acidity as a good pinot should, bright red cherry and strawberry flavors, oak spiciness and dusty mushroom earthiness. Light-bodied and easy on the palate. $20.
Greg rated this wine as 1/100 with the following review:

Sharp, almost biting. Didn't really like it.
Erath’s Oregon Pinot Noir may quickly become the most widely available, moderately priced example of this state’s iconic varietal. This new vintage is tight and herbal, with true varietal character and Burgundian elegance. Tart red berries, hints of citrus rind, moderating acid and fine balance throughout.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
