TASTING NOTE: From the most southerly wine-growing region in Oregon made up of three adjacent river valleys (Bear Creek, Applegate and Illinois) that extend from the foothills of the Siskiyou Mountains along the California border north to the Rogue River. Soils are variegated, part metamorphic, sedimentary and volcanic in origin and ranging from sandy loam to hard clay. Del Rio's literally brings all factors into play and what comes out is a reductively peppery, albeit elegant and lithely so pinot noir that really grabs your attention. Crunchy and earthy, really reeking of the multifarious dirt that gives this varietal wine life. Real energy, lift and grip and a sweetness of fruit to tannin that belies the groundswell feeling in the wine. Drink date: 2021-2024.
