Reviews and Ratings

Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Elegant shade of light red between ruby and garnet. Pomegranate and red currant with gentle warm oak notes. Tart red fruits on the palate; plenty of raspberry and dried cranberry with vanilla. Superb Pinot Noir crafted from organic grapes. Drink now through 2023 with duck breast, roasted game bird, or seared tuna steaks.
Craig Haynes WSET 3 for wine rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

From a producer known for championing sustainable and organic farming practices, this pinot noir from Oregon is impressive. Cedar, earth, blueberry, cherries and raspberry are some of the pronounced aromas you will find in this medium bodied wine. Stunning ruby colour and shows noticeable but not overpowering tannins. Anticipate a full spectrum of cooked red and black fruits on the palate and a long finish featuring blackcurrant.
Carolyn Hetke rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Dusty garnet colour. Beautiful nose of cherries and woodsy forest. Fruit is lost on the palate to the grippy tannins. Weightier than your average Pinot Noir. Long finish. Would go with charcuterie or tenderloin. Tasted April 2019.
A full-bodied, fleshy, intense Pinot Noir form Dundee Hills, Willamette Valley, Oregon. Sokol Blosser 2015 is so velvety and seductive with ripe raspberries, blueberries, cedar box and vanilla spice flavours on the palate. Tannins are chewy and there is vibrant acidity on this beautifully made Pinot Noir from organic wine grapes. - Community Wine Reviews
