Panther Creek is one of those sneaky-awesome wineries that popped up in 1986 in Oregon’s storied Willamette Valley. Founded by Ken Wright, formerly of Talbott Vineyards, Panther Creek has been lauded by renowned wine critic Robert Parker, Jr. “as one of the most consistent and high-quality Oregon wineries.” Those sentiments are reverberated today with current winemaker Tony Rynders. In fact, Rynders achieved more 90+ point scores from Wine Spectator than any other winemaker in Oregon during a ten-year period when he was at Domaine Serene and Rockblock Cellars. What does that say? Panther Creek is loaded with talent and Carpe Vino is an exclusive retailer of this fine Pinot Gris!!!
Still need convincing…then wait until you taste it!!! The 2015 Panther Creek Pinot Gris is EXPLODING with fruit flavors of APPLE and MELON, complimented by ZESTY LEMON. It is all stainless steel fermented providing BRIGHT ACIDITY, CRISP MINERALITY, and sports a LOOOOONG FINISH. Its the perfect compliment to seafood but we don’t call it a “porch pounder” for nothing!!!
“Wine Advocate” Tasting Notes: 90 Points
“The 2015 Pinot Gris offers up baked apple, lemon marmalade and dried apricot notes with a touch of honeysuckle. The dry, medium-bodied palate has a pleasant honeyed toast character with a lively backbone and good length.”
