Review:

The Bishop Creek Vineyard resides at the top of a hill in a little valley just a few miles north of Yamhill.

The winery says "Few Pinot Noirs get darker than this purple/black monster. The wine is utterly opaque. However, while the flavors run toward the darker side of Pinot Noir there is a deftness and elegance to this wine that belies the pigmentation of it. There is plenty of power in this wine which is befitting of the 2009 vintage at the upper end of the spectrum. The wine does have pretty sizeable grip on the back end that gives the sensation of it playing off of pure density however the mid-palate is cool, serene and has a range of flavors one might not expect to find in a wine of this heft. While this is our first go round with this particular vineyard it is pretty easy to see how this wine will gain in complexity with a few years of bottle aging and how this wine could easily go into a 15-20 year range of being aged while still being enormously enjoyable. We are excited about the prospects for this wine and our continued relationship with this vineyard down the road."
