Winemaker Notes

This wine offers a complex set of aromatics such as baking spices, raspberry, and wild blackberry are prominent. There are also hints of vanilla, dry herbs and earthiness. In the mouth, the wine is lively, yet serious with sappy dark wild cherry flavors, minerality and an array of tannin that underscores age-worthiness.This 2014 Mineral Springs Ranch Pinot Noir delivers a deep sense of satisfaction on the mid palate and leaves you with a long and impactful finish.

About Winery

Tony Soter is the founder of Soter Vineyards at Mineral Springs Ranch in Yamhill-Carlton, Oregon. Soter is a Portland, Oregon, native who began his remarkable 40-year winemaking career in the Napa Valley. After graduating from Pomona College in southern California with a degree in philosophy, Soter joined the staff at Stag's Leap Wine Cellars in 1975 to learn the trade. By 1982, he released his own wine under the Etude label, selling the winery almost 20 years later to Treasury Wine Estates. In the meantime, Soter worked as consulting winemaker for such world-famous Napa estates as Araujo (now Eisele), Chappellet, Dalla Valle, Shafer, and Spottswoode, among others. After almost 30 years in California, Soter moved back to Oregon and founded Soter Vineyards in 1997, where he is still making some of the most heralded pinot noirs in the state.

Today, Soter focuses on biodynamic grape growing to create rich flavors and substance. His cellar techniques look to the wisdom of past generations, trusting those natural processes to evoke the voice and character of each vineyard.

There are three distinct labels produced by Soter:

1.   SOTER VINEYARDS ... Illustrious estate-grown wines from Eola Amity, Ribbon Ridge, and Yamhill Carlton (where the Mineral Springs vineyard, farm, and winery are).

2.   ORIGIN SERIES ... Limited single-appellation bottlings showcasing each AVA's unique microclimate, geographical features, and growing conditions. 

3.   PLANET OREGON ... affordable, delicious, organically-grown wines from the Willamette Valley, ready to drink tonight.



James Suckling

Terrific aromas of strawberries and rose petals with superb energy and vibrance. Full body, incredible power and depth and fabulous balance and intensity. A tightly wound ball of silk. Superb quality here. Better in 2020.
