94 points Wine Spectator: "Open-textured, expressive and precise, layering black cherry, clove, tea leaf and floral flavors on a gentle frame, gliding into a long and harmonious finish. Elegant and intense. Drink now through 2022."

2010 Vintage Wine Advocate - 94 points - Prominent in the blend for Colene Clemens’ 2010 Pinot Noir Victoria are lower-altitude sections of the estate vineyard that – in a fashion not uncommon in the Willamette Valley – unexpectedly have the thinner layer of top soil (here over a basalt base not far from the surface). Ripe, fresh dark cherry and purple plum and marrow-rich beef stock are mingled with pistachio oil as well as wreathed and infused with smoky black tea, bay laurel, sweetly-perfumed freesia, and heliotrope. There is positively glowing, vibratory as well as salivary gland-tugging intensity to the sustained finish of this polished, elegantly buoyant beauty. I suspect it will reward attention for at least the next dozen years. - David Schildknecht
