Jessie Vineyard Pinot Noir Accolades

2013 Vintage

94 Points – 2013 Jessie Vineyard Pinot Noir, Eola-Amity Hills
" Deep red. Ripe black raspberry and cherry cola scents are complemented by suggestions of exotic floral oils, Indian spices and woodsmoke. Plush, sweet and sappy on the palate, offering concentrated red and dark berry and cherry liqueur flavors that become more lively with aeration. In a rich but decidedly vibrant style, thanks to a spine of juicy acidity. Finishes smooth, focused and extremely long, with building spiciness and smooth, gently gripping tannins."
- Josh Raynolds, Vinous Media

93 Points – 2014 Jessie Vineyard Pinot Noir, Eola-Amity Hills
"Moderately light reddish purple color in the glass. The aromas are varied and include cherry, rose petal, spice, earth and oak. Noticeable vigor in a mid weight styled wine with flavors of cherry, raspberry, spice and floral goodness. A little more masculine and “grounded” than the Marjorie with a little more structural tannins and perhaps a little less exuberant. The texture is refined and polished and there is noticeable intensity on the finish"

2013 Vintage

93 Points - 2013 Jessie Vineyard Pinot Noir, Eola-Amity Hills
"Bright and brambly, this dense and textural wine brings strawberry and cherry fruit goodness front and center. It remains powerfully focused deep into a long finish, nuanced with cured meat and barrel toast.."
- Paul Gregutt, Wine Enthusiast

92 Points – 2013 Jessie Vineyard Pinot Noir, Eola-Amity Hills
"Ruby-red. Highly perfumed scents of dark berries, cola and rose oil. Fleshy, expansive black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors display a suave blend of richness and energy, picking up a spicy character with air. Finishes juicy and very long, with lingering dark fruit flavors and slow-building tannins. Drinking window: 2019-2024."

2014 Jessie Vineyard Pinot Noir

Jessie Vineyard, in almost any vintage, exudes floral notes of blue and purple flowers and the 2014 expresses this trademark trait beautifully.  The nose swirls with earthy tones, dense strawberry fields, Chinese cinnamon, fennel seeds, cloves and star anise.  On the palate there is a richness to the core of opulent fruit and finishes with slightly sandy tannins and a balanced, persistent finish. This wine is drinking well now and may age for the next 10-12 years gracefully.
