91pointsMoving North 2017 Pinot Noir (Willamette Valley)

Editors' Choice

This new label, from importer Vintus, is a sleeper wine made by Vintus client Ponzi Vineyards. Included are grapes from Ponzi's Aurora and Avellana vineyards, as well as fruit from Lazy River, Bieze and Zenith, all marquee sites. Fermented and aged principally in stainless steel, this is a silky, soft and spicy wine, with a burst of cinnamon and hot-pepper candy. The ripe berry-fruit flavors are pretty and plentiful, and there's just a touch of milk chocolate woven through the finish. Paul Gregutt
