Jeb Dunnuck 96 Points: “Although it comes from the Tualatin Hills, a cooling coastal influence emerges from the 2021 Pinot Noir Bednarik Vineyard. Bright ruby, it’s red-fruited and packed with aromas of tangerine citrus oil, fresh red flowers, and fresh herbs. Medium-bodied, with a vibrant, driving core of fresh acidity, ripe tannins, and a mineral texture, toasty notes of incense linger on the finish. An outstanding Burgundian-slanting wine, it has fantastic tension and balance. Drink 2024-2036.”

IWR 96 Points: “Grown on own-rooted stock planted in 1988, it’s aged for 11 months in French oak barrels and showcases a light purple core with a bluish rim. Interesting dust, earth, and spice notes pop from the glass and compliment the black raspberry and cherry fruits that play second fiddle. The impeccable balance between the luscious fruit, the peppery spice, and the rounded but firm tannins, produce a Pinot Noir that I highly recommend and one that should cellar for over a decade without a problem. *Highly recommended* *Editor’s choice”

Winery Notes: “Rooted in marine sedimentary soil deep in the cool coastal foothills, this 6-acre, own-rooted vineyard was planted in 1988 by William Bednarik to Pommard and Wadenswil clones of Pinot Noir. A dry winter and warm spring led to a warm growing season ending with a dry fall. Handpicked on September 20th & 26th, the grapes were broken up into five lots with varying percentages of whole cluster. Grapes were fermented with indigenous yeast and aged in oak for 11 months. Then they were moved gently to bottle, unfined and unfiltered. This Pinot Noir is layered with ripe cranberries, sweet red fruits, and floral aromas that accompany the refined and silky palate.”
