Cherries, blood orange and baking spice- very fruit forward. This particular bottle had fairly elevated volatile acidity and simple flavors.

Gott fylligt faten känns smak av lakrits. God pinot noir.

Nose of red plum/skin and red cherries (definitely red fruit). Pallet has sharp acidity, tart plum skin, a touch chalky tannic structure. It’s definitely young and drinking that way, even with a decant. I’d give it another 2-3 years. EDIT: days 2 and 3 were much better. It opened up beautifully showing the real potential when the wines hits its stride. If you do open young, decants for a few hours or double decant the day prior.

A ruby jeweled colour,, well balanced and lush wine with beautiful structure and acidity. Medium bodied, with fresh fruits of bright black cherry and strawberry that mingle with notes of Christmas spice, forest floor, cola and tobacco. An outstanding entry level Willamette Valley Pinot Noir.

A little on the lighter side. Good as aperative but not with food.
