Remarkable purity. Super expressive for being so young. This is a stunningly pleasant surprise.

A real Oregon Pinot Noir, good substance and astringency. Bit too clean and the aroma can be more intense and nuanced., bit heavy and sweet-fruited, but it is definitely not a simple, watery Pinot Noir one normally encounters. Very satisfying, unique mineral structure and well-balanced.
