Broadley Vineyards 2014 Claudia's Choice Pinot Noir Score: 92 "13.5% alc., 350 cases, $50. Estate grown and bottled. Named for Broadley Vineyards co-founder Claudia Broadley. Sourced from a distinct block of the estate vineyard that tends to ripen later and often sets smaller clusters. The result is a big, dark, complex wine. The blend is primarily Pommard clone with some Wädenswil. Wild yeast fermentation. Aged 14-18 months in 40% new and the balance neutral French oak barrels. · Moderate reddish purple color and very bright in the glass. Somewhat moody, with aromas of earthy dark cherry lead to a satisfying mid weight palate of blueberry and black cherry fruit flavors. Very generous, with a silky texture and a saturating fruit driven finish offering a cascade of fruit. The wine is still very young and needs time (like many 2014 Oregon Pinot Noirs) to fully integrate the tannins.

Broadley Vineyards 2014 Marcile Lorraine Pinot Noir Score: 93 "13.5% alc., 150 cases, $50. Estate grown and bottled. · Named for founder Craig Broadley’s mother, this wine is produced each year from the same distinctive block of old vine Pinot Noir. A cooler fermentation, tighter-grained wood, and low toast barrels are used in production. A blend of Wädenswil and Pommard with the majority Wädenswil. Wild yeast fermentation in open-top oak fermenter for 14-21 days. Aged 14-18 months in French oak barrels, 40% new and the balance neutral. Moderate reddish purple color in the glass. The nose offers primarily oak scents with added aromas of ripe cherry, earth and stem. The mid weight plus core of black raspberry fruit is opulent and layered, framed by rigorous tannins and silky acidity. The fruit has that old vine tenacity. Impressive balance and appeal but rather reticent at this stage, finishing with a remarkably long finish. The wine may warrant a higher score after more time in the cellar."

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.

Broadley Vineyards 2014 Jessica Pinot Noir 94 Points"(80% whole clusters and 50% new oak) Brilliant red. A highly complex bouquet evokes ripe red and blue fruits, incense and Asian spices, along with subtle vanilla, cola and exotic floral accents. Sweet, seamless and penetrating, offering concentrated raspberry, boysenberry and spicecake flavors that become more energetic with aeration. Shows outstanding clarity on the impressively long finish, which features silky tannins and resonating spiciness. In the context of top-drawer Pinot, from anywhere, this wine is a steal."

Broadley Vineyards 2015 Jessica Pinot Noir: 92 Points

"(60% whole clusters and 20% new French oak) Limpid ruby-red. Expansive, spice-accented red and dark berry aromas pick up hints of cola and espresso with air. Juicy, broad and appealingly sweet, offering intense black raspberry, cherry cola and spicecake flavors that deepen on the back half. Shows very good depth and power but comes off lively and finishes sappy and impressively long, with subtle framing tannins."
