2012 Broadley Vineyards Estate Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.9% alc., $28. · Dark violet color in the glass. Brooding aromas of dark cherries and berries with a faint note of anise and vanilla. Rich, deep and concentrated with a hedonistic core of sweet black raspberry, cassis, and spiced plum flavors with a shadow of oak in the background. Matching tannins and a generous fruit-filled finish complete the picture. Still very young and slightly awkward, becoming more expressive and refined with time in the glass. Cellar this wine for a few years. Score: 90. Reviewed March 29, 2014 WINERY » ARTICLE »

2010 Horsetail Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.8% alc., 150 cases, $28. Sourced from Zena Crown, Broadley and Sunny Mountain vineyards. 100% destemmed. Aged in 60% new Francois Frères and Taransaud French oak barrels for 14 months. · Moderately light reddish-purple color in the glass. Aromas of cherry, oak, biscuit (yeasty), stem and coffee becoming more pronounced the following day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle. Soft in the mouth with vibrant acidity, featuring cherry and raspberry fruit with a hint of tarry, coffee-scented oak in the background. A racy wine for early drinking. Decent.

2005 Broadley Vineyards Claudia’s Choice Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.5% alc., $40. A family- owned and worked winery. This wine comes from a 7 acre distinct block of the estate vineyard. · Black cherries, Asian 5 spice and pencil shavings make up an interesting nose. Slightly jammy and simple fruits with a very healthy tannic backbone. I would lay this one down a few years. Reviewed January 30, 2008 WINERY » ARTICLE »

2005 Broadley Shea Vineyard Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.5% alc., $45. Broadley is a family-owned winery in Monroe in the southern Willamette Valley whose first release was in 1988. Sourced from old vines. · This wine showed more the redder fruit profile of this vineyard. Lightest in color and structure of all of the Shea Vineyard wines, with a noticeable brisk acidity and citrus kick on the backend. While the Auteur is more a sipping wine, this is more a table wine.
