Not Vintage Specific
Robert Parker 93
"The 2009 Pinot Noir Mineral Springs is a 300 case bottling sourced from the tenderloin of the vineyard. More expressive and elegant than the Mineral Springs Ranch, it shows off the best aspects of the vintage. Beautifully proportioned and impeccably balanced, it is one of the stars of the vintage."
"After more than 25 years of consulting for elite labels - Araujo, Dalla Valle, Moraga Vineyards, Niebaum-Coppola, Spottswoode, Viader Vineyard - and the success of his own Etude Winery, Tony Soter is returning to his native state of Oregon to pursue his dream of owning his own vineyard and making his own wine, as it is done in Burgundy. Located on the north fork of Chehalem Valley, the vineyard has 22 acres planted to Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. It was originally planted in 1988 but new plantings were added in 1998 and 1999. Tony still retains a consulting position at Etude Winery, but focuses his efforts here at Soter Vineyards." ~ Winery notes
