Pale ruby, bright acidity, black tea, earthy, with orange peel, black cherry, strawberry, forest floor. Medium bodied, still a bit tight on the palate. Give it a year or two.

Fresh strawberries, cherry pastille, bitter rhubarb, floral tones, might gain complexity but very nice now

Founded in 2007, very nice small production Pinot, 662 cases. The ‘17 has grapes from all six blocks at Maresh. Light Ruby, floral and fruit aromas, very light almost crisp. On the palate youthful flavors of cherry and fresh strawberry with elegant spice. Fine tannins, lingering ending with fruit and tangy spice and mineral notes. Great now but a few years will bring out more of the wines complexity.

Dark ruby with moderate concentration. Wild herbs, orange peel, tart cherry and some unexpected green pepper. Zero oak. Medium bodied. Quite restraint...

Pale, translucent / ripe raspberry, rose petal / super delicate, subtle, thoughtful, restrained / some spices slide in on the finish, elevated by minerality / lucid and haunting

Pretty color. Almost a medium -light hue of glowing crimson. Nose of crushed bright red berries, sassafras and orange zest. Palate shows a nicely bright red fruit profile with tons of verve. A crunchy and polished mouthfeel with red strawberries, red raspberries and spring flowers. It's super fragrant and very gorgeous. I am so loving the orange peel/sweet tart/violet thingy running straight through it. Wow. Tannins are elegant and finely meshed and acidity spot-on and bouncy. A mid-palate creaminess that only a Cab guy can appreciate. Balanced, elegant, vibrant and just awesome. What the hell is not to love?

Candy Apple coating followed by ripe cherries. Very fresh shovel turned earth. Very good effort

The electric beet color of this wine is otherworldly. Gorgeous nose of tart raspberry, roses, and spring water. Beautifully high toned and matched perfectly with duck breast.

Charcoal, peat, raspberry jam and orange blossom nose, cherry coke and rhubarb and acid raspberry palate. A bit too tart for my taste because there's #residualsugar and glycerin, but it still makes you wince. #willamettewine #willamettepinot #oregonpinot #pinotnoir
