Cved 10/21/20. Beautiful light red color. Very lively elegant floral young red fruits yet stony notes that changed as I sniffed. A lean athletic elegant acidic texture that continues on to a super lengthy complex finish. Perhaps faded a bit over hours in glass. A young Gelsey Kirkland showing promise. What a wine to go with the Mimi Casteel philosophy and practice! With the effort to obtain from Morrell 65. Best New World Pinot yet, so distinct from the Burgs but equally compelling. Perhaps more so given the effort and youngling vines. One more intact bottle. Be interesting to see how it’ll age. Wow. Next day not much detectable in the empty glass unlike some others with lingering scents.

12.5%. From Mimi Casteel read about her in the NYT - a long article by E. Asimov. Hard to get. Raspberries pomegranate hint of strawberry’s 🍓 Orange 🍊 peel. Pricy 80$!. I prefer a tad more acidity. It just seems the wine falls off over time.

Wild red berries, roses, med + acid, very fine tannin. This is lovely, though it feels slightly polished and is not the best QPR in Oregon pinot at $80
