Winery notes:

“Take home Willamette Valley history in a bottle. 2015 will be the capstone vintage of our iconic Elizabeth’s Reserve Pinot noir. For nearly four decades the “Lizzie” has helped define the celebrated terroir of Willamette Valley Pinot noir. For this final vintage, Winemaker Gina Hennen, selected fruit from 13 of Willamette Valley’s most exceptional vineyards throughout the Chehalem Mountains, Dundee Hills, and Eola-Amity Hills. This collectible vintage shows notes of blueberry, lavender, and delicate spice, flowing into the voluminous yet refined palate. Its elegant structure will develop gracefully as you age this special vintage for years to come.”

Critical acclaim:

“92 points.

“Glimmering ruby-red. Bright, energetic aromas of spice-accented black raspberry, cherry cola and mocha, plus a touch of potpourri. Spicy and broad in the mouth, offering appealingly sweet dark berry and cherry liqueur flavors and a sweetening hint of vanilla. The cherry and spice qualities resonate strongly on a very long, seamless finish that features silky tannins and a building floral quality. (28% new French oak)” – Vinous
