Black cherry, underbrush, cola, baking spice. Finesse. Med- bodied. Acid does a lot of work.

Tannins & oak not integrated until decanting. Needs more time. #WhiteDinner

Light and lively red fruits. Good roundness.

Love this wine, opens on the nose like baby powder typical Willamette Valley Pinot perfume pop, and settles down immediately into a vanilla BlackBerry. Young, for sure, but totally drinkable now, tastes good with all sorts of things, strongly recommend it for day-to-day deliciousness. Turns into magic with Kalamata olives baked into a Greek chicken. Good with or without food.

Really enjoyed the light fruity spectacular wine. Nice soft finish. Paired great with a ribeye and Chilean Seabass

Dark garnet color. Smoke and spice on the nose. Palate shows dark cherry character with some black tea on the mid palate & through the finish. Good power & intensity. Very nice.

Nice, balanced Pinot with fresh, acidic blueberry notes. But it doesn’t grab me, even after opening up. There’s better to be had from A.R.

Terrific daily drinker. Typical earthy vibes from the Willamette Valley.
