Lori Kilmartin rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Tasted this Pinot in a blind tasting with 5 others from Oregon. Those in attendance rated it in their top favourites - and I have to agree. Sweet cherry, smoke, leather, and some chocolate on the nose. Medium body but a rich mouthfeel with balanced tannins and acidity. Delicious flavours of ripe cherry and a touch of oak. A complex Pinot from Dundee Hills that I wouldn't hesitate to recommend or buy again. Tasted February 28/2017
Melanie Lloyd rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

This medium bodied wine is the colour of home made strawberry jam. On the nose, there are aromas of over ripened strawberries with a touch of vanilla, cedar, incense, and caramel. Flavour wise, there are red berries, mostly strawberries and field cherries. The tannins are velvety and the flavours linger on the palate. This wine would pair nicely with poultry in a berry sauce or with turkey dinner.
Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Aromas of smoke and red fruit with currant, spice and orange citrus on the palate. Good acidity with fine tannins and a long finish.

Natalie's Review

Sokol Blosser Pinot Noir 2012, Dundee Hills, Willamette Valley, Oregon, United States: Love this style of Oregonian Pinot Noir! Fleshy ripe raspberries yet not jammy. Dark spices and intrigue and a wonderfully seductive velvet texture. Full-bodied but not heavy. The vines for this wine are planted in the iron-rich red soils of the Dundee Hills in the Willamette Valley, which helps with photosynthesis. Pair this wine with seared tuna.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty 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.
