Medium-full bodied, not overly complex, dark red cherry, spice, faint oak and an herbal note, maybe a li’l bit of heat. Overall a good, solid Willamette Valley pinot. QPR on this one tonight maybe not so solid but found it enjoyable nonetheless.

Shimmering ruby. Expansive aromas of fresh dark berries, cherry cola, potpourri and exotic spices; vanilla and espresso notes emerge as the wine opens up. Sweet, fleshy and seamless in texture, offering palate-staining black raspberry, cherry liqueur, vanilla and spicecake flavors and a sexy violet pastille nuance. Velvety tannins build slowly on the finish, which hangs on with impressive, floral- and spice-dominated persistence. (60% new French oak) (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, June 2019)
