Porthos Team Notes
“Sourced from Oregon’s famed Eola-Amity Hills region, this is a seductive Pinot that focuses on the floral and spicy. The billowy bouquet sports ample red fruit, hints of rose petal and anise. Luscious and opulent on the palate, it delivers waves of raspberries, and tangy baking spices that crescendo for a memorable finish. Perfect with an array of menus, this savory Pinot will continue to drink well for another 4-5 years.” (7/22/21)

95 Points | JS
“A complex nose with sappy, foresty notes framing ripe blueberries, red cherries and sultry, gently herbal, bunchy influence. The palate has impressive power and drive, packed with fresh red-cherry and boysenberry flavors. The acidity is a feature and holds a very long, supple and lively finish. Drink or hold.” - James Suckling
