2013 Pinot Noir


Great Northwest Wine’s latest review on our Love & Squalor 2013 Reserve Pinot Noir ‘Antsy Pants’


February 10, 2018

The vintage prior led Portland urban winemaker Matt Berson to source the northern end of the Willamette Valley for his reserve Pinot Noir. Here, he worked with clone 667 from Vista Hills (34%) near Domaine Serene in the Dundee Hills, clone 777 from Cherry Grove (33%) near Gaston and clone 828 — the “suitcase clone” courtesy of the late Gary Andrus — off Sunny Mountain south of Corvallis. Charming aromas of Benton cherry juice, raspberry, clove and sweet herbs transition into suave flavors of Bing cherry, red currant and Craisin. Dusty tannins, marvelous acidity and the late arrival of strawberry make for a long finish.

Rating: Outstanding!
Production: 75 cases
Alcohol: 13.4%
