The new Family Reserve is a clear ruby in the glass with color to the rim. Somewhat shy nose of black cherry and weak tea. Palate is medium bodied and confirms the nose with medium acidity and medium tannins throughout. Wow! The good folks at Coelho brought their A-plus game to this one! A super elegant PN that will serve every purpose you have for Pinot Noir, including holding if you wish. Classic pairs are its friend. Unusual pairs will sing too. Drink now through 2026.

Opened this because weeknight and wanted a glass with dinner. Not what I expected. Extremely smoky and short dry finish. I don’t mind smoky wine but I have friends that do. I was expecting a lighter more fruity and floral from Williamette region. I would not have guessed this was a Pinot noir.

Light like a pinot, yet dry with nice oak. Would buy again.

Dark berry, velvety… minimally tart. Robust and would pare nicely with steak/pasta. Buy again!!

Not sure why rated so high, really bitter and acidy.
