This 375 was a little funky at first but cleaned up a bit after 45 minutes or so. Burgundian nose features limestony gravelly notes, brambly underbrush, and dark cherry. In the mouth it’s a bit tight, with vibrant acids, but underneath that potential energy there’s dark cherry fruit and a pungently savory note. It keeps changing its nose and taste with every sniff and sip it seems. Fun, but hard to keep up with. And hard to tell where it’s going.

Good, tasty, rich. Not showing much complexity or soil signature, maybe a bit generic/'new world'?

Bruins win and this Pinot is a winner too. Beautiful nose of dark, sweet plum-tinged cherry, graham cracker, and rich moist gravel. Delicate in weight yet with intense flavors, it’s got nice acids and gossamer tannins. Long finish. Nice job!

Smells of blackberry bramble - a classic nose, notifies me this will be a good Pinot.

Alpine strawberry, lingonberry, a hint of coriander and tangelo zest. Light to medium bodied, a fully expressive Pinot that roars about what it is is, and purrs when you notice.

Layers of lush cherries & some dark fruits and pie spice, cedar & earth flow in silky waves from front to finish. Stunning acidity. Pure, fresh, balanced. #ORwine
