Beaux Frères The Beaux Frères Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015

$89.99

Limited new release from Beaux-Freres. Wine Spectator #3 of 2016. The Beaux Freres vineyards are located on an 86-acre farm in Yamhill County's Willamette Valley. Majestic Douglas fir trees comprise just under 50 acres of the farm, with the homestead and barns occupying another six acres. The vineyard is situated on 30 acres of steep contiguous hillsides that enjoy an exceptional south/southwest exposure. The property, purchased in 1987 by Michael Etzel and the noted wine critic Robert M. Parker, Jr., was named Beaux Freres (the brothers-in-law). A few years later Robert Roy, a Pinot Noir and red burgundy enthusiast from Quebec, became the third member of the Beaux Freres partnership. A limited opportunity to try some of Oregon's highest rated Pinots!

The 2016 Beaux Freres ‘The Beaux Freres Vineyard’ Pinot Noir is a simply marvelous new effort from this storied estate. The Ribbon Ridge AVA wine shows wonderful earthy terroir on the nose. This shows a wonderful combination of red and dark fruits on the nose with Asian spice and forest floor aromatics. The palate shows good richness and tension with red currant, red cherry candy, strawberry puree and orange rind flavors with a touch of peat moss. Rich and focused, this will cellar well for the next fifteen years. Drink 2018-2033- 95

Tried hard but seemed tired. Both the Coravin and the fresh bottle sample. Has some elegance to it Cherry notes are still there and some spice. But the lack of interesting secondary complexity for the age surprised me for this usually top notch winery. Low rating given the high investment.

Ribbon Ridge Oregon - the earthy side of pinots - very different from Russian river - think I am partial to Oregon for pinots.
