Ruby hue with fuchsia rim variation. Medium tearing. Bright red fruit on the nose; notes of cherries, strawberry rhubarb, raspberry, violet, dried rose, wet slate, and potting soil. Delicate leather and dusty notes on the palate. Light and vibrant Willamette Valley Pinot with loads of red fruit characteristics and moderate acidity that dances on the palate. ABV 14.1%. Vintage 2017.

Pale purple and ruby hues with a delicate haze. Black cherry crisp, raspberry jam, plum sauce, almond paste, vanilla bean, spearmint, sage, sweet basil, molasses, cardamom, lemongrass, and dried lavender notes on the nose. Tart cherries and herbal influences on the palate. Medium- body and medium acidity. Nicely balanced with a semblance of reserve softening into a juicy ripeness with each encounter. Pairs nicely with herbed pork tenderloin wrapped in prosciutto, roasted butternut squash, and steamed haricots verts.
Vintage 2013. ABV 14.2%.
