93 Points from Wine Spectator's Insider

------------------------------------------------------------------------from northwest-wine.com

Today, Wednesday August 9, Wine Spectator's "Insider" Newsletter rated several Oregon Pinot noirs. Bethel Heights' Casteel Reserve 04 came out on top. They said:

" Lithe, open and immensely appealing for its supple plum, blueberry and dusky spice aromas and flavors, lingering beautifully on the harmonious finish. Drink now through 2014.—H.S." 687 cases made

Bethel Heights Casteel Reserve Pinot noir 04

The wine is being released this week, and we wanted to give you, our valued customers, a chance to order.

From the winery: " The 2004 Casteel Reserve has all the elegance and
complexity of its predecessors. Although purists may remain committed to the separate block and vineyard designated bottlings, for others this reserve blend has emerged as the best of Bethel Heights Pinot Noir."

We at Avalon say, this third vintage of Bethel Heights' Casteel Reserve solidifies its position as one of Oregon's finest Pinot noirs. Terry Casteel combines over 20 years of winemaking with a masterful selection of vineyard sources to product an elegant, complex, expansive Pinot noir. RIch spice and berry fruit scent and flavors keep unfolding in the glass, showing layers of different fruit, spice, and smoke notes as the wine opens. Lots to enjoy, this wine will keep you tasting as the flavors continue to evolve and change.
