Gorgeously done. Silky and terroir driven with moderate cherry 🍒 notes.

Glorious woodsy sandalwood spice and deep pine scented red cherries at 19 years on...a sweet curing tobacco leaf and a silty cedar tannin that goes swimmingly with slow rendered duck breast, morels crisped up in duck fat and complete wilted ramps -first the bulbs the the greens all in the same single cast iron pan. All it took was heat, time, salt, and thyme...

Excellent pinot. Silky smooth with dark cherry, blackberry and hints of tobacco and leather. Just a hint of earth. Great balance. Amazing with steak.

Rich and buttery, fuller bodied pinot. Black fruit, some black cherry and vanilla. Medium acidity and smooth finish.

Took about an hr to open. Deep red crimson color. Bigger than regular Oregon Pinot. Presents almost like a cab but thinner. Cherries, prunes, a touch of spicebox. Smooth finish. A beautiful example of one Oregon's great larger wineries.

Raisiny and a little past it sadly but still had some acid left to make it good with cheese.
