Soter Vineyards Willamette Valley North Valley Pinot Noir 2009 Wine Review (NW)
Fragrant raspberries with mineral tones on the nose
Medium bodied on the palate
Red berry layers with cherry and some herbal notes on the finish
Soter delivers a nice, balanced Pinot Noir here. 2009 was a challenging vintage for some producers in Oregon, but this wine show the grace and class that the region has become known for.
Expect to pay $30 for this bottle, which is a fair market price rather than a bargain wine. Pair with lighter dishes and give the wine plenty of air. Raise a glass!
