2011 Soter Mineral Springs Ranch Yamhill-Carlton District Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.4% alc., $45. · Medium reddish-purple color in the glass. Aromas of cherries, dried herbs and mushrooms. Light, elegant and soft on the palate, with flavors of cherries and blueberries caressed by gossamer tannins. A very delicately flavored wine that is true to the Soter style and mirrors the vintage. That said, the wine is appealing but not special. Score: 88. Reviewed December 18, 2013
