Medium ruby; medium plus intensity aromas of red cherry, red plum, subtle raspberry, subtle ripe blackberry; dry, medium acid, medium minus tannins, medium alcohol, medium intensity flavors consistent with aromas; medium finish, fruit a bit riper and juicier than I’m accustomed to, only moderately complex with mostly primary fruit notes

2017. From New Seasons. Too light in body. Will not purchase again.

Decant and enjoy the profile — the tannins aren’t insurmountable... but they are at the forefront. After decanting: cherries, yeasty chocolate, and sherry.

Ripe red cherries, roses and vanilla. Bright fruit and flowers, but a touch sweet for my palate.

Smooth cherry flavor, mild tannins, but delicious with pasta and red sauce. 2017 vintage. Oregon has the best Pinot noirs!

Excellent! We'll balanced tart cherry, raspberry, mushrooms, and cloves. Opened about 30 minutes prior to drinking.

Election night kickoff! Really nice OR Pinot. Good fruit, some spice and nice light tannins.

Quintessential Oregon Pinot Noir. Plum, earthy, and pepper on the finish.
