'Wine Spectator' ranks Oregon wine 3rd best in the world

PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Oregon wine lovers have been saying for years that the state makes some of the world's best wines. And Wine Spectator agrees.

An Oregon Pinot noir ranked third on the magazine's annual list of the top 100 wines in the world.

The magazine says the 2012 Evening Land Pinot Noir from Eola-Amity Hills Seven Springs Vineyard in Dundee is "seductive, silky and supple" with "currant, plum, blueberry and spice" flavors. It gave the wine a score of 98 points.

Other wines that made the list were the 2012 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir from Big Table Farm in Gaston at No. 11.

The No. 14 spot went to Bergstrom Wines' 2013 Pinot Noir Ribbon Ridge Le Pre Du Col Vineyard.

Solena Estate's 2012 Pinot Noir Willamette Valley Grande Cuvee came in at No. 38 and Colene Clemens Vineyards' 2012 Pinot Noir Chehalem Mountains Margo ranked 45th.

The top spot on the list went to a 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon from Peter Michael Winery in California.
