Review:

I've been staring at this bottle for a month, waiting for a free moment to open it. Damn I'm glad I did! I'm shocked at how much Pinot this is for the price. When first opened, black cherry and licorice invite you in to a fantastic party of fruit and spice. Filled with energetic intensity, delving into savory violets, crushed red and black raspberries, this is a pure joy to drink. - Marcus

2010 Vintage Wine Advocate 90-91 points

Adding Johan Vineyard to the roster of four sites that informed this cuvee's previous edition, the Ransom 2010 Pinot Noir Selection - tasted in a close approximation to its final assemblage - delivers downright refreshingly as well as invigoratingly tangy red currant and fraises des bois, tinged with coriander seed, nutmeg, and rose hip.

Buoyant to the point of delicacy, this finishes with mouthwatering persistence and is sure on release to represent an outstanding value that can be enjoyed over at least the next half dozen years. - Wine Advocate

A selection of four exceptional vineyards in the Eola Hills, the Selection Pinot Noir reads like an idyll to its picturesque home. A striking ruby color in the glass, Selection opens with bright, elegant aromatics of Bing cherries, huckleberry conserve, and violets. Savory flavors of fresh mission fig and clove balance minerality and sweet earth on a palate deftly punctuated with fine tannins and piquant spice. The finish is long, juicy and rich, at once satisfying and tempting. - Tad Seestadt

2009 Vintage Tasting Notes

This Ransom Pinot noir is named "Selection" as it is made from a selection of vineyards in the Eola-Amity Hills AVA of Oregon's Willamette Valley. Bright, fresh raspberries and cherries mingle with wild violets in the nose. The red fruit flavors deepen with fresh fig and pie spice, and Tad's trademark hint of earth and minerals is present in the perfect amount. It has a long, supple finish, juicy and satisfying.

2009 Wine Spectator - 90 points - Light and snappy, with a tangy edge to the red berry and currant flavors, sliding through the finish on a bed of fine tannins. Drink now through 2017. - H.S.

2008 Vintage Tasting Notes

Ransom was selected as one of the top ten emerging Oregon wineries in Wine Spectator.

2008 Wine Spectator - 91 points - Polished, elegant and deftly balanced to let the gorgeous rose petal accented currant and plum fruit float easily over well-buffed tannins, all of it lingering effortlessly. Drink now through 2018. 800 cases made. - H.S.

2006 Vintage Tasting Notes

2006 Wine Spectator - 90 points - Light and fragrant, lilting with lovely raspberry and strawberry flavors, shaded with hints of iris and white pepper. Drink now through 2013. 800 cases made. Release Price: $34. - H.S.

Big wine with earthy aromas of cedar, sandalwood, pepper, spice, leather, and bing cherry. Made from the best barrels of the best lots of the vintage. Age up to 10 years, this wine is made for collecting.
