Deep Ruby with aromas of red and black fruits, tar and earthy herbal spice. On the palate flavors of cherry & blackberry with citrus, tobacco and tar. Full-bodied, lively spice, fine tannins, medium finish ending with fruit and spicy character. Good value! Drink now no aging benefit, about 225,000 cases produced!!

The grapes of Erath! (Sorry, I had to).

I don’t think you could get a more entry level Oregon Pinot Noir...

Dark color for a Pinot, nose of plums and black cherry, fairly simple but enjoyable. The balance is slightly to the fruit side but that is typical of 2012. Wishing for more complexity but not realistic at this price point.

Bright deep garnet color with sweet raspberry and cherry fruits. Uncomplicated and fresh, with top notes of herbs and a spritely finish.  13.5% | $23

Wanted something red but not too overpowering for a Greek salad I cooked up. This was a really simple and straightforward food friendly wine reflective of is price point. Not dry, but not flat either. I could see it pairing well with a diversity of food.

A great table pinot noir. Red and purple fruit, not too much tannin or wood. Paired well with the pizza! ('cuz we ain't fancy)

A decent example of Oregon Pinot. Although pretty big and juicy. Cherry cough syrup, mushroom and leather. Good body and structure.
