Dena and Ernie are so underrated. Beautiful dark cherry, black tea, and underbrush. Potent nose.

Pinot Meunier is my favourite grape variety. For the new world- I love it so much more than its Noir sibling. It says- hi! I have depth- but I don't take myself seriously. I really like stems and I smell of sweet wet leaves crunching under foot. Yes. Yes.... And yes. Happy Thanksgiving!

Based on this, I want to find some more American Meunier.

12.6 alc. upon first pulling cork, very reductive...matchstick on nose/pallet. Blowing off within a couple of mins. Musty bright red berry, nice aromatics, long finish.

I love this light-bodied high acid wine with its cranberry flavors.

Really light in color, like, cran-juice light. And good, but a thinking wine that requires a bit of pondering to get to what’s going on — red vines, hibiscus, cranberry, with a rustic character that doesn’t distract. It could stand to mellow for a few years. Good stuff and I love to see Oregon producers embracing Pinot Meunier on its own.

The 2016 vintage has more than 14% alcohol, which just feels like too much for this grape and style. Throws the wine out of whack.

Different. Wonderful aroma. Doesn’t live up to aroma. Better with fatty foods.
