96 Points Wine Spectator                                           Limited new release from Beaux-Freres. Wine Spectator #3 of 2016. 96 Points Wine Spectator:  "A seductive wine that combines structure with harmony and a silky texture. Vivid black raspberry, rose petal and mocha espresso flavors build richness and dance on the long finish. Drink now." 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!

Translucent ruby-red. Powerful red fruit liqueur, potpourri, incense and smoky mineral scents, along with hints of cola and exotic spices. Alluring sweet and animated on the palate, offering densely packed raspberry, boysenberry, spicecake, floral pastille flavors and a strong undercurrent of zesty minerality. Fine-grained tannins frame and shape a powerful, mineral-driven finish that lingers with superb persistence and mounting sweetness. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, June 2019)

Wet earthy nose. Full body, dry, smooth. Cherry cola, vanilla up front, strawberries on the back. Outstanding! Great wine from a great winery...as good as Oregon Pinot Noir gets IMO.
