Medium Garnet. Still a bit young. Had the distinctive Willamette Valley taste profile.

We decanted this for a few hours before drinking, based upon my experience with young PNs, in hopes of dispelling the smoky oak and exposing the fruit. Full disclosure: PN is not in my top ten favorite varietals, with the occasional exception which proves the rule (see my previous reviews for the details). It is still quite smoky and oaky, with dark currant, strawberry, and raisin fruits hiding just out of reach in the smoke and wood. This is likely a great PN for enthusiasts of the French style.

Very juicy with hints of stone fruits, raspberry, and toasty notes. Easy drinking for a good price.

Smooth with medium body and finish. Berries, apples balanced with acid and tannin. Had this with steak and it was a great pair.

NakedWines. Give it a few minutes to open it and is very pleasant.
