95 Points Wine Spectator                                           Limited new release from Beaux-Freres. Wine Spectator #3 of 2016. 95 Points Wine Spectator:  "Combines structure with verve, offering richly expressive raspberry, violet and orange peel flavors that take on polish and complexity toward well-buffed tannins. Drink now through 2028." 95 Points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "Deep red. High-pitched cherry, black raspberry and rose scents are complemented by hints of succulent herbs, exotic spices and musky flowers. Shows impressive energy and focus on the palate, offering juicy dark berry, bitter cherry and rose pastille flavors given a spicy edge by a hint of star anise. Closes smooth, appealingly sweet and very long, with fine-grained tannins adding framework and gentle grip." 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!

Earthy, smoky nose. Mildly dry, mildly acidic, medium bodied, soft and smooth. Black cherries, blueberries, and a hint of cola. Excellent!

More Burgundian than some wines from burgundy. Excellent Oregon Pinot. Subtle red fruit with earthen palate. Love this producer

I always enjoy wines by this producer, even when the bottle is young (yes I should have waited). Lighter body. Really nice acidity. Red fruits on the nose. Flavors are tangy, earthen, and fruit driven. Fantastic finish even with young age. This wine should continue to develop for the next few years.
