2014 Paciência Pinot Noir Gets 91 Points

Wine Advocate

91 Points  2014 Paciência Pinot Noir, Coelho Estate Vineyard, Willamette Valley

The 2014 Pinot Noir Paciência Estate comes from Dijon and Pommard clones, and raised in 16% new oak for ten months. It has a pure and well-defined bouquet with dark cherries and boysenberry fruit – all very focused. The palate is well defined and lithe in the mouth, the acidity is well judged, gently building with light spiced dark cherry and black currant pastille notes on the tender finish. Very fine.

90 Points  2014 Atração Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley

The 2014 Atração Pinot Noir was aged on the lees for ten months and was matured in a judicious 6.5% new oak. It has a very commendable nose with brambly red berry fruit and blackcurrant – admirable varietal expression here. The palate is well balanced, a little “soft” in the mouth, but there is plenty of attractive, slightly meaty red berry fruit here and commendable definition on the finish. This comes recommended – especially at the suggested retail price.
