Deep Ruby with aromas of red and black fruits and floral spice. On the palate flavors of cherry & raspberry with cacao, oak & cinnamon. Full-bodied, generous spice, fine tannins, medium finish ending with fruit and spicy character. Good value! Drink now no aging benefit.

Raspberry. Light body, subtle tannin structure. Decent acid is there but none of the fruit or secondary notes sing at all.

Cranberry, dried flowers, tea, tobacco. Pretty bright and quite a bargain!

Located just South of Forest Grove, Oregon on a 585-acre wine estate overlooked by a grand Victorian mansion. Light Ruby with aromas of sweet red fruits and gentle floral notes, aged 10 months in 50% French & 50% Hungarian oak (12% new). On the palate strawberry and ripe cherry flavors with pepper and cedar spice. Sweet savory tannins, nicely balanced with good structure, medium finish ending with mineral tones. Great value!

Nicely balanced, easy drinking. Lots of better Oregon Pinot out there, but this delivers on its price point
