Wine Enthusiast

2014 Willamette Valley Chardonnay

EDITOR’S CHOICE. “Smooth and full bodied, this is packed with robust peach, pear, apple, lime and candied pineapple. There’s a streak of vanilla custard from time in new oak, and length-extending minerality. This just keeps on going in the most delightful fashion.” – PG

2013 Willamette Valley Chardonnay

“At first sharp and showing the influence of barrel aging in roughly 20% new French oak, this opens up and smoothes out into a supple, buttery wine. It’s rich with flavors of pineapple, baked apple, sweet spices and a hint of mint. Polished and sophisticated, it generously rewards your attention with plenty of delicious details.”

0

Wine Enthusiast

Clawson Creek Vineyard Pinot Noir

“Initially sharp and spicy, this compact effort supports its cranberry and cherry fruit with ample acidity. Give it some extra time to breathe open and it shows the muscle and structure to age nicely through 2024 at least.”

0

Wine Enthusiast

Knudsen Vineyard Pinot Noir

“From one of the founding vineyards of the Willamette Valley wine industry, this aromatic Pinot offers an intriguing mix of curry and cumin spices, along with pretty raspberry and cherry fruit. Tannins are balanced ripe and firm without being intrusive. Enjoy this over through 2020–2022.”

0

Wine Spectator

The Stalker Pinot Noir

“Sleek and racy, with vibrant notes of black cherry, dark plum and earthy spice playing against fine tannins and lively acidity. Mineral and maple syrup aromatics add to the finish. Drink now through 2022. 324 cases made.” – HS

0

Wine Enthusiast

Private Stash Pinot Noir

“From the Wits’ End estate vineyard’s best lots, this offers a complex fruit mix running from orange and pineapple into raspberry and cherry. A suggestion of Dr Pepper soda is in play also, and the wine shines with excellent texture and freshness.”

0

International Wine Cellar

Marsh Estate Vineyard Pinot Noir

“Vivid ruby-red. Sexy spice-laced black raspberry and cherry-cola aromas are complemented by deeper notes of mocha and licorice. At once lush and lively, offering broad dark berry flavors and a bracing kick of peppery spices. Silky tannins shape the finish, which clings with excellent clarity and persistent smoke and spice notes.”

0

International Wine Cellar

Knudsen Vineyard Pinot Noir

“Brilliant ruby-red. Black raspberry, cola, rose pastille and a hint of woodsmoke on the perfumed nose. On the palate, gently sweet dark berry flavors are lifted and firmed by juicy acidity and a touch of allspice. The spicy quality gains strength with air and carried through a long, seamless finish, which shows just a hint of dusty tannins. Very approachable now, but has the depth to suggest that a few years of cellaring would be rewarded.”

0

International Wine Cellar

Wits’ End Vineyard Pinot Noir

“Brilliant ruby-red. Sexy, spice-tinged red and dark berry aromas pick up subtle smoke and floral pastille qualities with air. Fleshy and broad on entry, then tighter in the mid-palate, offering intense black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors and a jolt of allspice. Silky tannins build on the finish, which lingers with excellent focus and length and insistent berry fruit character.”

0

International Wine Cellar

The Stalker Pinot Noir

“Vivid ruby-red. Aromas of pungent dark berries, black tea, cola and lavender, with a spicy nuance adding lift. Expansive blackberry and boysenberry flavors are lifted by gentle acidity and a hint of blood orange, which adds refreshing cut. Finishes smooth, sweet and long, with lingering smokiness and soft, round tannins.”

0

International Wine Cellar

Private Stash Pinot Noir

“Brilliant ruby-red. Heady, exotically perfumed aromas of black raspberry, cola, Asian spices, vanilla and pungent flowers, with a bright mineral quality adding lift. Offers intense, palate-staining dark berry and rose pastille flavors that become spicier and weightier with air. The mineral element returns on the subtly tannic finish, adding focus and cut to the persistent blackberry and cherry-cola flavors.”

0

Wine Spectator

Marsh Estate Vineyard Pinot Noir

“Taut, spicy and distinctive, with atypical apricot and pear overtones and a light layer of gravelly tannins underlying a core of black cherry and smoke flavors. Has depth, but needs cellaring to harmonize. Best after 2015. 424 cases made.” – HS


2011 ROCO Accolades

0

Wine Spectator

Eola-Amity Hills Chardonnay

“Light and tangy, with pear and delicate herb flavors staying refreshing and delicate. The finish keeps singing.” – HS

0

Wine Spectator

Private Stash Pinot Noir

“Lithe, with refined tannins around a light, spicy core, offering nutmeg accents to the moderate cherry flavors, lingering gently and persistently.” – HS

0

Wine Spectator

Clawson Creek Pinot Noir

“Light and vibrant, with fine tannins encircling a lean core of earthy cherry fruit, persisting gently on the delicate finish.”

0

Wine Enthusiast

Private Stash Pinot Noir

“Burgundian in every way, this deceptively light (in color, alcohol and impact) wine rewards your attention with its finesse and complexity. Rhubarb, pomegranate, peppermint, earth and savory herbs are all highlights, and the length is equally impressive. It’s low in alcohol, but high in aging potential.”

0

Wine Advocate

The Stalker Pinot Noir

“A lovely nose mingles sachet-like dried herbs and flowers and a haunting hint of rowan with ripe cherry. We have indeed got fine-grained tannins and a sense of stuffing without sacrificing buoyancy. Toasty nuttiness and peat-like smokiness are alluringly integrated into that ripe dark cherry, whose fundamental juiciness preserves vintage-typical brightness in a sustained finish. I suspect this will prove fascinating and delicious through at least 2018.” – JM

0

International Wine Cellar

Marsh Estate Pinot Noir

“Bright red. Sexy, high-pitched red berry and floral aromas are complicated by notes of spicecake and vanilla. Smooth, sweet and spicy on the palate, offering open-knit black raspberry and cherry compote flavors and a bracing note of orange zest. Closes with very good focus and energy, leaving a spicy note behind.”

0

International Wine Cellar

Private Stash Pinot Noir

“Vivid red. High-pitched raspberry and cherry scents are complicated by dried rose, vanilla and underbrush. Gently sweet and penetrating red fruit flavors show a refreshingly bitter edge and gain sweetness with air. Closes on a spicy note, with very good clarity and gentle tannic grip.”


2010 ROCO Accolades

0

Wine Spectator

Private Stash Pinot Noir

“Packs a lot of layers into a tight frame, piling up tiers of raspberry, chocolate and cinnamon flavors on a remarkably transparent structure, with fine tannins underlining the very long, expressive finish.” – HS

0

Wine Advocate

Private Stash Pinot Noir

“Offers a pure nose and palate expression of ripe cherry, with nutmeg, tamarind, nut oils, the piquancy of pit, and a medicinal herbal and mineral melange all adding interest and allure, while a suffusion of salinity serves for welcome saliva inducement. This satin-textured, complex Pinot ought to be worth following for the better part of a decade.” – JM

0

Wine Advocate

Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

“Brims with ripe cherry and red raspberry; is suffused with a saliva-inducing salinity; and finishes with exuberance, clarity, and satisfying juiciness. There is some sense of textural richness as well. I imagine this will remain delightful for several years.”

0

International Wine Cellar

Private Stash Pinot Noir

“Bright ruby-red. Sexy, pungent aromas of black raspberry, cherry-cola and licorice, with a subtle vanilla note in the background. Fleshy but focused, offering intense cherry and dark berry flavors lifted by tangy acidity. Finishes smoky, sweet and very long, with resonating spiciness and lingering dark fruit qualities.”

0

Wine Enthusiast

Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

0

Wine Advocate

Private Stash Pinot Noir

“The ROCO 09 Private Stash is a bit more deeply colored, displays greater depth and concentration and has enough structure to blossom for another 1-­2 years. Mouth­‐filling and succulent this lengthy, pleasure­‐bent effort offers a drinking window extending to 2019.” – JM

0

Wine Advocate

Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

“Offers up notes of cedar, spice box, rose petal, cherry and raspberry. Velvety-textured, sweetly-fruited, and well-balanced, this crowd-pleaser can be approached now and over the next 5-6 years.” – JM



2008 ROCO Accolades

0

Wine Spectator

2008 Private Stash Pinot Noir

0

Wine Advocate

Private Stash Pinot Noir

0

Wine Advocate

Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

“The 2008 Pinot Noir Willamette Valley delivers a pleasing perfume of cedar, spice box, rose petal, black cherry and black raspberry. It is likely to evolve for 2-3 years but can be approached now.”

0

Portland Monthly

Private Stash Pinot Noir

Oregon’s 50 Best Wines – #7 of 50: The late harvest of 2008 shines through with ripe fruit flavor, balanced acidity, and developed yet soft tannins. This wine is creamy and lush with sweet spices— think cinnamon, cloves, and allspice—and ripe berries, like a late-summer fruit cobbler in a glass.”


2007 ROCO Accolades

0

Wine Spectator

Private Stash Pinot Noir

“Light and silky, with an airy feel to the delicate plum and floral aromas and flavors, lingering easily on the refined, expressive finish. Drink now through 2014. 250 cases made.” – HS

0

Wine Advocate

Private Stash Pinot Noir

“The 2007 Pinot Noir Private Stash is a richer, denser effort with a focus on the dark fruit side of the spectrum. Aromas of spice box, black cherry, and black raspberry lead to a medium-bodied, intensely flavored yet elegant Pinot with layered savory fruit, enough ripe tannin to support 2-3 years of further development, and a lengthy finish. Drink it from 2011 to 2019.”

0

Wine Advocate

Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

“The terroir-driven 2007 Pinot Noir is medium ruby-colored with an alluring bouquet of spice box, smoke, earth notes, cherry, and raspberry. Sweetly-fruited and medium-bodied on the palate, it is a juicy, balanced, easy-going effort for drinking over the next 5 years. The French would call it a ‘vin de plaisir’.”



2006 ROCO Accolades

0

Wine Spectator

Private Stash Pinot Noir

“Soft and fragrant, this is remarkable for its silky texture and seamless structure. Pretty strawberry and currant fruit pulse gently at the core, shading toward white pepper as the open-textured finish lingers elegantly.” – HS

0

Wine Advocate

Private Stash Pinot Noir

“The 2006 Pinot Noir Private Stash is dark ruby with aromas of mineral, damp earth, cedar, spice box, and assorted red and black fruits. This leads to a concentrated, mouth-filling wine which is also quite elegant, no mean feat in 2006. Drink both of these outstanding Pinot Noirs over the next 6-8 years.”


2005 ROCO Accolades

0

Wine Spectator

Private Stash Pinot Noir

“Supple, graceful and deliciously complex, offering dark plum, blackberry, and black olive flavors on plush texture. The flavors linger expressively against wisps of tannins. Drink now through 2015.” – HS

0

Wine Advocate

Private Stash Pinot Noir

“The 2005 Pinot Noir “Private Stash” is from Soles’ Wit’s End Vineyard. It has a superb perfume of toasty black cherries, black raspberry, and floral elements. This is followed by a broad band of sweet fruit, vibrant acidity, light tannin, and enough balance to ensure a long window of peak drinking.”



2004 ROCO Accolades

0

Wine Spectator
