Soter is Tony Soter's life-long study in viticulture and winegrowing. Settled at Mineral Springs Ranch in the Yamhill-Carlton District of the Willamette Valley. Aged for 12 months in 40% new French oak. A complex nose of ripe berry, sweet spice & dried red fruits with floral scents. On the palate if flavors of sweet cherry and strawberry, vanilla notes, savory acidity with smooth silky tannins. Lingering finish ending with mineral notes. Starting to drink well now.

Very special 2013 vintage ...where the extremely hot summer and heavy rain actually balanced out the wine naturally ...amazing riper/redfruit but the balance of earth to fruit and oak really showcases winemakers ability to create and work in confluence w nature and still create a very special wine...awesome!! Go Cahill!!

From the usually austere 2011 vintage. The wine is surprisingly rich, though the fruit tends toward tart, with a delicate mouthfeel. Everything was harmonious and well-integrated. Very enjoyable, especially for a 2011 Oregon Pinot.
