Cancilla Vineyards is the choice of some of Oregon's best up-and-coming winemakers. Because the vineyard is less known than, say, Shea, the wines typically come in at half the price of the famous brands. And the vineyard is proving to be a rising star, just like the winemaker. The Haden Fig Cancilla 08 is a fair comparison - and it sold out in a week.

The Roots Cancilla Pinot noir flavors are predominantly blackberry, black currant, and earth. The Cancilla Vineyard's characteristic hint of licorice and spice livens things up, and the tannins are smooth and balanced. Pair with lamb or pork and use light flavoring on the meat to let the wine's sweet spice shine through.

2009 Wine Advocate - 90 points - The 2009 Pinot Noir Cancilla Vineyard is light in color but very concentrated for the vintage. Savory red fruits, exotic spices, and vibrant acidity lead to a firm, elegant, impeccably balanced wine that will deliver prime drinking from 2012 to 2019. - Jay Miller
