Minerals, briery berries, savory. 2011 Oregon PNs are paying back nicely now. This one is fully ready. The great wines of this vintage - one that was panned too early by most in the major wine media - appear to have quite a fine future still.

Classic Pinot noir that showcases the special strength of the 2012 vintage in Oregon. In other words, the fruit is dense and powerful but balanced and bright enough to please the acid freaks. Dark cherry, red cassis, cinnamon and more minimal oak profile compared to evesham's J cuvée.

Cola and dill. Somewhat medicinal. Nice tartness. Little to no weight.
