New world fruit with old school winemaking this is a classic Oregon Pinot in the Making . Aromas of red flower , spice , dried herbs , red cherry give way on the palate Elegance and power with dominating blue and red fruits a savory component and a saline /minerals finish needs a few years but should be great .

The twiggiest of the twig and branches that make up the nose of a classic Pinot noir. This is room filling.
Cranberry, raspberry mushroom (hen of the woods and enoki), mouth watering afterthoughts of these fruits turn into a tannic interlude, within the light to medium body - an embrace of the tea tannins that linger on..

A great Pinot Noir. Thank you Cris and Tom.

Nervous. In a good way. Positive and grippy tannins kick in on the finish. Needs another few years.

Harvest strategy planning with a great wine from a warm vintage. Great density and mouthfeel.

Okay, its good, but it isn't great. And if you're going to charge $45 for a bottle its got have its shit together. This is a very thin, whispery wine with a complex nose of strawberries and cherries smashed into a forest floor. The acidity is poised, the tannin are gentle, and the wine is certainly very pleasant and good time. But, at $45 its way overpriced. Should be about $30 at most, and that'll cost you some stars from Rossy Boy. - Ross Gardiner

Terrific 14, best of the lineup. Lovely balance of forest floor, holiday spice and brilliant fruit. 5 years additional bottle age will do wonders.
