92(pts) Editors' Choice Broadley 2017 Pinot Noir Willamette Valley $22 “One of the first of the 2017’s to be released, this elegant, sophisticated wine dramatically out-performs its price point. The luminous color, pretty floral aromatics and subtle integration of fruit all suggest a wine that could easily bear a reserve label. Raspberry and cherry fruit, sweet spices, polished tannins and supple acidity pull it together nicely, even at such a young age.”

Delicious essence of blue and black fruit mix with a hint of dark chocolate. Firm but mature tannins conceal the fruit at this early stage. The velveteen texture and grand finish leave a memorable impression. Great potential. Score:93-94” ."

Broadley Vineyards 2015 Claudia’s Choice Pinot Noir: 93 Points $50 “Deep lurid red. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes ripe red berry and cherry preserves, potpourri and exotic spices, and a smoky mineral topnote builds with air. Stains the palate with juicy, densely packed raspberry, cherry cola and rose pastille flavors that are sharpened and lifted by juicy minerality and a spicy snap of white pepper. Delivers a compelling blend of richness and vivacity and closes on a repeating floral note, with superb clarity, harmonious tannins and wonderful persistence.”

Broadley Vineyards 2016 Claudia’s Choice Pinot Noir: 93 Points “Limpid ruby-red. Vibrant red currant, strawberry and blood orange aromas are complicated by suggestions of Asian spices, dried rose and underbrush. Taut, focused and energetic on the palate, offering sappy red fruit and spicecake flavors that deepen and turn sweeter with air. Nicely concentrated but lively in style, showing excellent focus and sneaky, even tannins on the impressively long, mineral- and floral-accented finish.”

Broadley Vineyards 2014 Marcile Lorraine Pinot Noir: 93 Points "(40% new French oak) Deep vivid red. A highly perfumed bouquet displays oak-spiced red and dark berry, incense and floral pastille qualities, along with hints of cola and vanilla. Plush, sweet and broad on the palate, offering juicy black raspberry and boysenberry flavors sharpened by a smoky mineral nuance. Shows excellent clarity and repeating florality on the very long, chewy finish, which is shaped by youthfully dusty tannins.

Silky and expansive in the mouth, offering intense red fruit, floral pastille, star anise and vanilla flavors that pick up a smoky nuance as the wine opens up.

Broadley 2016 Shea Pinot Noir: 94 Points $55 “Vivid red. A complex, highly perfumed bouquet evokes fresh red berries, baking spices and potpourri; hints of candied rose and rhubarb emerge with aeration. Juicy black raspberry and boysenberry flavors slowly stretch out and become sweeter and deeper on the back half. Shows excellent clarity and floral thrust on the impressively persistent finish, which is supported by harmonious tannins that fold quickly into the lingering, sappy fruit.”

Broadley Vineyards 2016 Jessica Pinot Noir 94 Points $55 “Brilliant red. Assertively perfumed scents of candied red fruits, incense, potpourri and exotic spices pick up a hint of smokiness in the glass. Sweet, seamless and expansive on the palate, showing wonderful clarity and mineral lift to the bitter cherry, raspberry and rose pastille flavors. Takes a deeper, darker turn with air and finishes on a gently tannic note, delivering outstanding persistence and lingering black raspberry and spicecake qualities. (made with 50% whole clusters)”

Broadley Vineyards 2015 Marcile Lorraine Pinot Noir: 93 Points "(Willamette Valley) Forward and fruit driven, the flabors here touch on strawberry, cherry and tangy tangerine. It’s a juicy ripe delicious bottle, balanced and ready for near-term drinking. Enjoy this excellent wine from now on into the early 2020s, when it should be at its best."

Broadley Vineyards 2016 Shea Pinot Noir: 92 Points (Yamhill/Carlton AVA in greater Willamette Valley) “A lot of Oregon vintners are eager to get on Shea’s customer list, and this bottle is as good an example as any why that’s the case. A striking mix of cranberry, strawberry, raspberry and marionberry flavors, it also sports a firm seam of stem and earth. The tannins are smooth and polished, with the pleasantly drying mouthfeel of tea."
