The kind of wine that makes you fall in love with wine all over again. A straightforward expression of place, varietal, and vintage. Fantastic.

There’s so much sneaky complexity in this wine. There’s the urge to just chug due to its beautiful purity of fruit, but resist that urge. There’s so much more behind that glorious veil.....

Deep fruits, floral tones. There’s a red something I can’t identify- like cranberry mint jelly. Seems a touch reticent. I think I’d wait on the next one and see what happens.

Brian this is a beautiful wine. So balanced and lovely. I wish I had a case left instead of just another bottle. Deep dusky nose full of ripe rich fruit, dark roses, and Willamette Valley earthiness. Palate is deep fruit and balanced with a long finish. Full of dark cherry, earthy chocolate and figs/prunes (in a good way)

Always good. Earthy aromas, bright acidity, cranberries, and smooth finish.
