Appellation: Willamette Valley
Argentina native Juan Pablo Valot has been at Silvan Ridge Winery since 2005, long enough to work for three generations of the Chambers family. This effort with Pinot Noir ranks among the best in the Northwest, and it’s a delicate yet accessible example. Bing cherry, cinnamon and a wisp of smoke lead to flavors of raspberry pie, Chukar Cherry and pomegranate as elegant tannins and a sprinkle of cinnamon make for a smooth finish. It qualified for Wine Press Northwest magazine’s 21st annual Platinum Judging by earning a gold medal at the 2020 Sunset International Wine Competition, and several months later received an unanimous vote for Platinum.
Rated “Double Platinum” by Wine Press Northwest.
