Cali-cab guru Tony Soter fled California a couple of decades ago, and ensconced himself into the Oregon wine scene. He has since spawned multiple wine labels focusing on various Oregon AVAs and producing loads of great pinot noir and chardonnay. But the top of the Soter wine hierarchy is his Mineral Spring Ranch bottling from all-estate fruit. It’s always one of the best bottlings of each vintage, and 2018 is no exception. This is very rich, highly textured, and exquisitely long and detailed.
From Suckling: “This has such ripe red-cherry pinot fruit aromas, as well as forest wood and a swathe of deep-set spices. The palate carries such plush red and dark-cherry flavors in a long, fresh and energetic mode. Commanding pinot with such impressive poise. Drink or hold.”
