Wine Advocate 90 Points: Featuring dark and bitter-edged berry fruit - cassis, blackberry, and huckleberry - such as prove typical of his reds Prosser's 2010 Pinot Noir Vespidae displays density with refinement of tannin and focus. Black pepper, charred meat, and a hint of salt add to the long-finishing interest and savor of a wine at once sinister in its metaphorically dark flavor allusions and bright in its invigoratingly fresh berry juiciness.

2009 Vintage Tasting Notes

2009 Wine Advocate - 91 points - The 2009 Pinot Noir Vespidae is a new wine for the portfolio. Savory, dense, and more darkly fruited than is typical of the vintage, it is a mouth-filling, intense, succulent, velvety-textured effort that will evolve for 1-2 years and drink well through 2019.

New father Jim Prosser is well-established in his winery on Parrot Hill in the Chehalem Mountains AVA. He is pleased by the fact that he was able to bring all of his 2009s in under 14% alcohol. - Jay Miller

Your Saturday night dinner party of eight... or two is where the J.K. Carriere Willamette Valley Pinot Noir really shines. It is beautifully elegant, and as a staple on your table it will consistently make you a hero. This wine is the cornerstone of our winery. If you have to lay only one of our wines in your cellar, this is it. - the winery
