2019 Walter Scott "Sojeau Vineyard" Eola-Amity Hills Pinot Noir

SKU #1551617 97 points Decanter

Outer quote mark According to Ken Pahlow, Sojeau is the 'Musigny of Eola-Amity Hills'. Planted to Pinot Noir clones Pommard, Wädenswil, and 115, this unique site is incredibly rocky. It has been certified organic for twelve years, and the high altitude produces wines of lovely tension and power. This vintage has an expressive pomegranate and raspberry note with high-toned floral notes and a mineral edge. Yet, despite all the fruit, the wine retains immense finesse, elegance, and plenty of structure. (CC) Inner quote mark (7/2021)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2019 Pinot Noir Sojeau Vineyard is stunning even at this early stage, with delicate cranberry, blueberry and tangerine with wafts of gravel dust and violet. The palate is silky and ethereal, with a weightless feel and loads of floral and earth-laced flavors, finishing very long and perfumed. (EB) Inner quote mark (12/2021)

94 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark Grown on a rocky wind-exposed ridge near the southwest corner of the appellation, this wine feels cool, with spicy whole-cluster notes over tart red-cherry-lozenge fruit. The savory and fruit notes coalesce without effort, growing seamless with air, full of flavor and assertive in texture - but weightless and light. (PJC) Inner quote mark

K&L Notes

Neal Martin writes of Walter Scott: "When I am asked if there were any 'great discoveries' in Oregon, I would mention Walter Scott without hesitation. This is a small bijou operation run by Ken Pahlow and Erica Landon and their story is one of essentially risking everything to pursue their dream."
