The Wine Advocate says:
The 2014 Pinot Noir Thistle Vineyard offers a pale to medium ruby-purple color and lifted nose of cherry cordial and red currant jelly with hints of moss-covered logs, black soil, Ceylon tea and yeast extract. The, taut, medium-bodied palate is laden with red berry and earthy flavors, structured by firm, grainy tannins and plenty of freshness, finishing long and perfumed.
The Wine Enthusiast also rates this one of the top ten Pinots of their top Oregon Pinot vintage ever, saying:
In this exceptional vintage, the all-estate bottling over-delivers big time at this price. Brambly blackberry/kirsch flavors fill the mouth with sappy juicy flavors. The tannins are a bit stiff, and at first the wine hits a tannic wall, but more bottle age, aeration and/or aggressive decanting will open it up. The lengthy cinnamon-soaked finish hints at a stellar cellar life ahead.
Suckling and the Wine Spectator rate it outstanding, too.
The winery says:
Our 2014 Dundee Hills Pinot Noir epitomizes everything Sokol Blosser has stood for in nearly 45 years of winegrowing in Oregon. Crafted to be a true expression of terroir from our hillside vines and Jory soil, this wine is made from a low yield crop that is dry-farmed for quality and comprised of grapes that are all from Dijon, Pommard and Wadensvil clones.
