2010 Trisaetum "Coast Range Estate" Yamhill-Carlton Pinot Noir

SKU #1087579 92 points Wine Enthusiast

 Notes of cola, earth, sassafras and spicy berry bring a textural, diverse set of flavors to this mellow Pinot Noir. With a hint of dried herb, it shows fine balance and impressive complexity.  (12/ 2012)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Bright red raspberry and red currant are tinged with iodine and smoky black tea in the nose and infectiously juicy palate of Trisaetum’s 2010 Pinot Noir Coast Range Estate. A sweet, saline, scallop-like savor - as well as metaphorically cooling inner-mouth evocations of herbal essences on a polished palate -leads to a long finish of finesse and fascination. This should be worth following for at least 6-8 years.  (8/ 2012)

91 points Wine Spectator

 Polished, elegant and silky, offering lovely red berry and cherry flavors. Lingers easily and evocatively on the long finish. Drink now through 2018. 350 cases made.  (10/ 2012)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Vivid red. Pungent, spice-accented aromas of dried red fruits, rhubarb, anise and musky herbs. Supple and sweet, with deeply pitched redcurrant and cherry flavors that pick up a refreshingly bitter edge with air. Packs a serious punch but comes off as lively thanks to tangy acidity, which adds cut to the long, smoky finish.  (7/ 2012)

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Pinot Noir

- One of France's most legendary grapes and the grape that earned Burgundy its reputation. The parent of varietals like Pinot Gris/Grigio and Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir is blue to violet to indigo in color with relatively thin skins, and it is said to have been cultivated in France for more than 2,000 years. At its best, Pinot Noir creates elegant wines that are filled with primary red fruit aromas and flavors while young, revealing with an array of secondary characteristics like earth, smoke, violet, truffle and game with age. The varietal is also known, perhaps better than any, for its ability to translate terroir, or a sense of place. While the best Pinot Noir still comes from Burgundy, it is being produced with increasing success in cooler climates around the world. In France, it is part of the trifecta of grapes that can go into Champagne, and it is also grown in Alsace, Irancy, Jura, Savoie, Lorraine and Sancerre. Outside of France it is produced under the names Pinot Nero and Blauburgunder in Italy's mountainous regions, as Spätburgunder in Germany and as Blauburgunder in Austria. In the US, Pinot Noir has found suitable growing conditions in the cooler parts of California, including Carneros, the Russian River Valley, the Anderson Valley, the Sonoma Coast, Monterey County, the Santa Lucia Highlands and Santa Barbara County, as well as in Oregon's Willamette Valley. In recent years, New Zealand has demonstrated its ability to interpret this hard-to-grow varietal, with successful bottlings coming from careful and attentive growers in Central Otago, Martinborough and Canterbury. Chile is also an up-and-coming region for Pinot Noir, creating fresh, fruit-forward, early-drinking and affordable Pinots from the coastal Casablanca Valley and the Limari Valley.
Country:

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.

Sub-Region:

Oregon

- Highly touted for its Pinot Noirs, Oregon is part of the up-and-coming winemaking industry in the Pacific Northwest of the United States. Most of Oregon is directly affected by the climate coming off of the Pacific Ocean, giving it mild winters and wet summers. This makes it a difficult place to ripen grapes, but some say that the harder grapes have to struggle, the more complex they will turn out to be. Chardonnay and Pinot Gris are two important and successful grapes grown in Oregon.
