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.

bright ruby; black cherry, vanilla, potpourri, hint of smoke; sweet flavors of raspberry, plum, cherry liqueur; medium to full body, nice acidity, velvety tannins, 14.2% ABV; made from 100% Pinot Noir, aged 16 months in 60% new French oak; beautiful representation of the appellation, very nice vintage, and the opulent Domaine Serene style, $70

Similar to the Yamhill but bigger on the nose with more perfume and darker cherries. Slightly more tart too, but that should mellow with age.

2014 vintage - perfume, floral, spice, bright red cherry. M+ acid, m-/m tannin. Long finish. Briny and minerality on the palate. Much more elegant than the 2013 vintage.

Oak products (?) dominate. Nice fruit overrun.

Tart cherries, peppermint. Lean, with a hard edge. Would love to see this with 5-10 years in the bottle. Lots of stuffing.

Double decant and pour. A splendid
medium ruby red color. On the nose: cherry, smoke, wet leaves, herbs. Taste: black cherry, strawberry, minerals, tea..a medium to full body beauty from Oregon. Cheers, it's Friday!!

Took awhile to open up.. suggest decanting it. Black licorice and dark cherry on the nose. Still very acidic and young a bit young.
