Floral bright cherry. Some oak notes with tart raspberry finish. Dry and tannic.

To me, this is everything you want in a bottle of pinot noir at this price point. Bright, acid driven and super versatile with food.

Very transparent ruby color almost like thinned out cranberry juice. Slight funk in the nose with very little fruit. What fruit presented on the palate is at cranberry to pomegranate. High acid, low fruit, not a lot of charm, a victim of the less than awesome vintage. Food softens the acid and pops the fruit: smoky sausage really helps this wine. Some fine tartrate crystals.

Super drinkable--light but not weak or thin.

A pretty Oregon Pinot that deserves a high score for the excellent qpr. Sweet cherry, candied red fruit, tingly acid, and just enough dance to accompany a wide range of food. Nice to see that there are still values to be had amongst the crowd
