2011 Seufert Winery Horseleap Vineyard Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

245 cases, $30. Pommard and 777 clones planted in Willakenzie marine sedimentary soil. · Moderately light cherry red color in the glass. Quite a bit of oak dominates the nose that features aromas of cherry and savory herbs. A pleasing wine on the palate with welcome fullness and roundness, offering a mid weight core of cherry goodness wrapped in modest tannins. Less oak is evident in the mouth, and the cherry-driven finish finishes with some length. The acidity is more harmonious in this wine. Score: 89. Reviewed May 14, 2015 ARTICLE »

2011 Seufert Winery Vine Idyl Vineyard Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

241 cases, $30. 100% Pommard clone from vines planted in volcanic Jory soil. · Moderate reddish purple color in the glass. Appealing aromas of black cherry and wilted rose with oak in the background. Mid weight core of black cherry and raspberry fruits framed by modest tannins and bracing acidity. Bright and vibrant, with a satisfying fruit load and a citrus-driven finish. Score: 89.

2011 Seufert Winery Zenith Vineyard Eola-Amity Hills Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.0% alc., 245 cases, $35. Pommard and 777 clones. Vineyard planted in 1999. Multiple soil types. · Moderately light reddish purple color in the glass. Aromas of red cherry, cranberry and dried herbs are replicated in the flavors of this lighter weight wine that is a bit tart and tannic. A little oak is trying to add interest, but the tannic sinew and sharp acidity overwhelm the delicate fruit. If I was drinking this wine, I would chill it or add ice to temper the tannins. Score: 86.

2006 Seufert Winery Reserve Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

13.9% alc.. · Moderately dark reddish-purple color in the glass. Ripe fruit aroma profile that takes some coaxing to emerge. Delicious and substantial core of black cherries, black raspberries and plum sauce supported by husky tannins. Bright acidity brings the fruit into focus and balances the tannins, and contributes a citrus toned berry finish of some length. A thoroughly enjoyable drink that beautifully reflects the warm vintage, displaying its good points (ripe, luscious fruit) without its bad qualities (high alcohols, over ripeness).
