Light Ruby with aromas of berry fruits and herb citrus spice. The palate shows cherry flavors, hint of tea with lively acidity. Medium length, soft tannins, finish a bit thin ending with fruit and spice notes. Drink now no bottle age benefit. Tasting Sample.

Deep garnet purple. Shy nose yields black cherry and other dark fruits. Echoed on the palate with weak black tea and a touch of spice. Medium body. Medium minus(!) acidity. Low tannins. A bit more “crowd pleasing” than I’d like or expect from Drouhin and Willamette Valley, but a well-made wine nonetheless. There could be some development as I’ve found Pinots like this can age gracefully. Drink by (or don’t drink until) 2026.

Pimento bacon burgers, nice pairing. Muted red fruits and nice aroma.

Dark fruits of blackberry and blueberry are prominent. A touch of spice weaves through but doesn’t overpower. I don’t detect a lot of the usual earthiness and dustiness that comes with Williamette Pinot. More fruit forward.
