Great start with strawberry and currant with a lengthy finish. Elegance of Oregon and at the winery they have pigs roaming so they salute the perfect pairing - pork and Pinot. Love Beaux Fréres.

Lots of red/blue fruits and impressive concentration without coming off as “manipulated” or heavy.

Lots of flavor. I’m not a fan of Pinot; most tastes like grape juice with pop rocks added. But this is a cut above.

Nice ripe young fruits. Easy to drink, soft tannins with long elegant finish. Not sure about the #3 spectator rating , yet would def drink again!

Just trying some 14's here and there, think they will be delightful! Balanced fruit, great body, still think it can age some more. Will continue to get better!!

It's not that there's anything wrong with this wine. It's not flawed. This is absolutely about personal preference. I think. But I have a hard time understanding how you can jam so much ripe prune flavors into an Oregon Pinot. Not a food wine.

Spring florals, cinnamon, bright lean mid red fruits; cranberries, strawberries, wild cherries, rhubarb, vanilla, very soft chalk, nice minerals, acidity and finish.

A solid ⭐️⭐️ ⭐️ wine with upside potential to⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ given some age. You would like this buddy @David L but I think you'll prefer the Alexana Best Block Clone 7777
