Montinore Pinot Noir Reserve Willamette Valley 2019


The 2019 vintage in Oregon is widely considered one of the greatest vintages ever. It really had it all. It was a bountiful harvest, with a totally easy, even growing season, no early fall rain and the fruit brought in was healthy and concentrated, showcasing the finest Pinots many folks ever made.

You may remember the 2019 Domaine Drouhin, the Composition or the Chad Pinot (our highest ever rated Chad Pinot in the history of Nicholas Wines), or maybe Lemelson, Bergstrom, Resonance or Adelsheim.

What I’m trying to say is every single 2019 Oregon Pinot I had was excellent… so we went all in on the vintage.

And the wines were so good to us – people couldn’t get enough. The allocations flew.

Luckily, I secured one of the very last great 2019 bottlings made – and from a terrific winery in the northern Willamette Valley, Montinore.

There’s not a whole lot of wineries tucked away in the pocket of the Willamette where Montinore is. Really it’s just them and Elk Cove up here leading the way. But ever since the early 1980’s Rudi Marchesi has made sure that people who come to visit Oregon’s greatest wineries, don’t miss a trip up to Forest Grove to find some of the best Pinots in the state.

92 Points, James Suckling
Super spicy cherries with spiced-biscuit complexity. The palate has a very smooth-honed core of bright, vibrant dark berries and cherries with silky tannin texture. Drink or hold.

91 Points, Wine Spectator
A handsome Pinot, with generous cherry and cranberry flavors that mingle with green tea and savory spices. Ends with refined tannins. Drink now through 2029.
