St Innocent Chardonnay Freedom Hill Vyd 2014 Product #31880 (In Stock)

A STEAL in top-notch Chardonnay from one of the Willamette Valley's best vineyards; for Burgundy or California fans.

"Aromas of fresh pear and white peach; orange pith and jasmine nuances add complexity and lift. Sappy and penetrating on the palate, offering pear nectar and citrus zest flavors that deepen and spread out nicely on the back half. Hints of sweet butter and ginger emerge on a long, smoke-accented finish that echoes the floral and orange notes. I like the interplay of richness and vivacity here."  Vinous (Raynolds) 91 points

St Innocent Pinot Noir Momtazi Vyd 2014 Product #31697 (In Stock)
St Innocent Pinot Noir Momtazi Vyd 2014 St Innocent Pinot Noir Momtazi Vyd 2014

We love how this cool site shines in warm vintages like 2014.  Vivid and bright but with typical velvety texture.

"Deep-pitched red and dark berry aromas are complicated by suggestions of succulent herbs, cola and lavender, and a subtle vanilla nuance emerges slowly with air. Juicy, focused and pure, offering gently sweet black raspberry and cherry cola flavors, a touch of licorice and a jolt of peppery spices. The impressively long, penetrating finish is framed by supple tannins that fold smoothly into the clinging dark fruit."  Vinous (Raynolds) 92 points

"Bright and tangy, with a meaty edge to the raspberry and boysenberry flavors, finishing with sharp focus. Drink now through 2024."Wine Spectator 91 points

St Innocent Pinot Noir Freedom Hill Vyd 2013 Product #31878 (In Stock)

The challenging 2013 vintage and a bit of time both favor St Innocent wines, which always show in an old-world style and gain complexity and depth with age.

"Assertively perfumed scents of black raspberry and cherry compote, with hints of vanilla, cola and rose emerging with air. Juicy and lively on the palate, offering sweet red and dark berry and floral pastille flavors along with suggestions of cola and spicecake. The smooth, sweet finish shows mounting tannins and an echoing floral pastille quality."  Vinous (Galloni) 91 points

St Innocent Pinot Noir Shea Vyd 2013 Product #30479 (In Stock)
St Innocent Pinot Noir Shea Vyd 2013 St Innocent Pinot Noir Shea Vyd 2013

Generally recognized as Oregon’s “Grand Cru” vineyard, Yamhill’s Shea Vineyard always delivers a bit more power and intensity than the typical site.  St. Innocent’s wine comes from a mixture of Pommard and Dijon clones growing  on Willakenzie soils at about 400 feet elevation.  The wine is more dense and black-fruited than most of Mark Vlassok’s other wines, and is matched only by Justice for firmness of structure.  In 2013, this has lovely purity for the site and finishes long and firm.  Limited.

"Bright ruby. Sexy, smoke-tinged aromas of red and dark berry preserves, candied flowers and mocha, with a hint of sandalwood in the background. Sappy, sweet and expansive on the palate, offering concentrated blackberry, cherry-cola and rose pastille flavors that tighten up on the back half. This suave, seamless wine finishes with excellent clarity and length, its silky tannins building slowly."  Vinous (Reynolds) 92 points

"A much more expressive nose features both red and dark berry scents where added breadth is present in the form of spice, earth, briar and smoky hints. The mouth feel of the medium weight flavors is unusually sleek for the Shea vineyard with fine intensity though the classic muscularity is present on the dusty, robust and impressively lingering finish. This isn't an elegant wine but it does make a statement. Patience will definitely be required."Allen Meadows 91 points

St Innocent Pinot Noir Shea Vyd 2014 Product #31727 (In Stock)

As always, plenty of Mark Vlossak's signature velvet texture here with fine delineation and freshness, too. A great Shea Pinot.

"Ripe, mineral-accented red berries, cherry and five-spice powder on the highly perfumed nose. Juicy and alluringly sweet, offering vibrant raspberry and cherry cola flavors complicated by suggestions of candied rose and vanilla. Silky tannins provide shape to a very long, spice-inflected finish, which leaves a note of red fruit preserves behind."  Vinous (Raynolds) 93 points

"The 2014 Pinot Noir Shea Vineyard has an attractive bouquet with lively aromas of wild strawberry, blackberry, iris and a subtle menthol notes that skulk in through aeration in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, crisp acidity, gentle at first, but quite intense towards the finish with touches of blood orange, spice and sous-bois infusing the red fruit. This is very fine."Wine Advocate 92 points

"Bright and snappy, with raspberry, cherry and smoky, minerally notes coming together with impressive focus, broadening out into a long and generous finish. Has presence and depth. Best from 2017 through 2024. 946 cases made."Wine Spectator 92 points

St Innocent Pinot Noir Justice Vyd 2014 Product #31881 (In Stock)

Fine depth and power here with the velvety texture Mark Vlossak always seems to achieve.

"An array of fresh red and dark berry scents are complemented by suggestions of smoky Indian spices and cola, and a mineral nuance lends vivacity. Supple and broad on entry, offering juicy black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors that develop sweetness with air. Plays richness off vivacity with a deft hand and finishes very long and smooth, with sneaky tannins framing the sappy fruit."  Vinous (Galloni) 93 points
