Elegant, tight, and refined. Been a long time since I tasted and want to give these some age for legit assessment. But definitely cracking.

Year in and year out, this is one of my favorite wines from one of my labels. A mild garnet color with thin edges. The exceedingly pleasing nose features notes of green tea, shy red cherries, and fresh herbs. Faded rose petals and raspberry crumble round things out.

I hate to use the term Burgundian to describe domestic Pinots. It’s almost always false and just plain isn’t fair. This definitely deserves the moniker. Silky smooth in the mouth with medium acidity and body. Well integrated tannins and some lively spice add to the prettiness of this.

The combination of rusticity and elegance really takes this to another level. Sly and delicate red fruit shine on the palate while the earthiness takes hold. Moist earth, dried forest, and straight up gravel. Long finish showing more spice and just a little kick of cinnamon. Spectacular stuff that really shows what Oregon Pinot is about.

Veering off into Oregon Pinots. Delightful. Tremendous QPR here. Given that their La Source is twice the price, this is a stunning achievement!

Checking in on a 2017 after a fantastic 16 recently. Despite being such a youthful wine, this shows excellent balance. The fruit has plenty of power, but the structure and complex texture are in great harmony. The aromatics are alluring and inviting. This will only get better, but is wonderful now.

lighter than expected, but nice balance and acidity, and a deceptively long finish. lingers with red fruit and spice notes. solid Oregon pinot
