Not the best vintage of this cuvee, but a steal at $2.99 for a half bottle at Grocery Outlet.

Nose of dark cherry, graphite, black pepper. After a few minutes being open, tinges of rot. Color is already going brick red with a very clear meniscus. Flavors of dark cherry, pomegranate, and spice. Acidity is very good. Finish is medium to medium short.

Lightweight but not delicate and needs a little time to open for best results. I wasn't convinced right out of the bottle but it definitely grew on me. It needed some time to open up and then it showed much better. It started a little thin and muted but about 30 minutes of air somehow actually seemed to give it a little more body as well as let the strawberry jam and cranberry notes come through.

2012 - Very good year and a goodly wine. Tasted like A thick tropical Capri sun at the start with a slightly tannic but overall smooth finish. The last glass started to wear on me (glass 4) and just tasted like alcohol. I still finished it! 😃

Acidic... Jen liked this one better than the first one, but Jesse didn't.

Wow. Blegh ratings for the A/Z Pinot. I like this wine and their motto: "Aristocratic wines at democratic prices." My wheelhouse.

So here comes the Wine Spectator Top 100 wines of the year Oregon Pinot. Very solid Pinot. Nice balance, it's all there. But it makes me realize, I am just not that much of a Pinot guy.

Fruit forward with a fantastic finish. Compared to other Pinot Noir's, this one has a wonderful body and mineral profile.
