Jerry Owen of Owen Roe fame has earned three Platinums in the past two years, and winemaker Dan Duryee’s highest score in 2021 came with this three-barrel vineyard-designate Pinot Noir off vines in Jory soil from nearby Salem. It’s a winsome wine that’s delicate and fruity as black raspberries, Rainier cherries and baking spices are embraced within in a suave structure. Award: Great Northwest Invitational (gold).
