Soter Vineyards is the culmination of Tony Soter's life-long study in viticulture and winegrowing. Mineral Springs Ranch in Yamhill-Carlton gives balanced Pinots with exceptional texture, and this is no different. Balanced with ruby red fruit and bright acid, this is sure to please.
Beautifully fresh and complex with very fragrant, violet-like aromas, together with blueberries, cocoa, red cherries, oyster shell, a swathe of fresh herbs and much, much more. The palate offers a very succulent, focused sense of power and a long, chiseled feel that carries blueberries and red cherries very long and very fresh. Try from 2023.
Harmonious and elegantly layered, with raspberry, violet and savory spice accents that dance toward polished tannins. Drink now through 2028.
Pale to medium ruby-purple, the 2017 Pinot Noir Mineral Springs Ranch, from biodynamically farmed grapes, is scented of cinnamon stick, autumn leaves, rose petal and bergamot with touches of fragrant earth, charcuterie and a core of ripe raspberry, strawberry and rhubarb. It’s medium-bodied and silky textured, walking a nice line between bright fruit and savory flavors, finishing fresh and long. This will benefit from another year in bottle.
