About This Wine:
Located in the heart of the Willamette Valley, Panther Creek has been producing signature bottlings of Pinot Noir since 1986. Founded by Ken Wright, now a legend in Oregon wine circles, the winery is known for both its single vineyard-designate wines and its sublime blends.
“Our goal in making Panther Creek wine is simple,” says winemaker Tony Rynders. “We believe that great Pinot Noir can be enjoyed as a young, fresh wine that showcases ripe, sweet fruit, as well as an older, mature wine that features unparalleled complexity and beauty.”
Renowned wine critic Robert Parker Jr. once described Panther Creek as “one of the most consistent, high-quality Oregon wineries… producing some of Oregon’s most concentrated and age-worthy wines.” That legacy continues with the 2018 Pinot Noir, defined by its balanced palate, red-fruit flavor and delicate spice note.
