Entry level Pinot. Makes for an everyday drinker. Decent dark & light red fruits, soft minerals and earth with high acidity. The wasp is the image of their brand as Jim the winemaker/owner is highly allergic. Stung many times and lived on to make more nice wine. Now that's staring your enemy in the face everyday. Thanks for all your time today.

Very reasonably priced Pinot. Excellent value. Well made wine with lots of spice, character and depth from start to finish. I am surprised the community doesn’t rate this higher. Maybe it’s the screwcap that brings down the ratings.

Motivation for another Willamette wine tour. Not overwhelmingly fruity with a subtle earthy feeling.

I'm still trying to clear the smell of acetone from my nose. Drinks better than it smells but not by much. After sitting in glass for a while flavors of cherry start to shine through but overpowered by acetone on first couple of sniffs and sips.

Tough to find an Oregon Pinot this yummy for under $30. Cherries, herbal notes, bit of earthy funk. A touch medicinal, but not in a bad way.
