Clean, somewhat simple, refreshing. Plenty of tart red and black fruit on the nose along with some earthy mineral notes. Nice mouthfeel due to the balanced acidity and round tannin. Very easy to drink.

Nothing about this said Oregon to me. Candied nose with a lot of pomegranate liqueur. Didn't have the acid I wanted to balance it out and freshen it up.

Lost a bit of its brightness... earthy with black fruits. Lacking that Pinot pop.

Ruby hue. Ripe, red cherry, strawberry, raspberry, vanilla, nutmeg, mushroom, rose, lavender, potpourri, wet slate. Light-to-medium bodied red. Lovely.

Aromatics are alluring and deep. The dark red fruit is out front on the palate with some baking spices and some higher toned berries through the mid palate. This has a lot of youthful power, and is a sheer delight to drink.

Decanted for 45 minutes. The wine really began to shine after the decant....cherry, vanilla, and caramel.

2012. Very light in the beginning but this is deceiving.
