Currently in a "sweet spot". Full, round, silky and spicy. Now to 2028 or so...

Very delicate, intriguing aromatics just doesn't deliver on the palate, thin and short

Spent some time with Oregon Pinots and largely have found them to be inconsistent and difficult vintage-wise. This one is delicate and nuanced. One to watch.

Excellent for an entry level AVA blend. Thanks to the great 2012 vintage and winemaker Tony Rynders for creating such a delightful wine with a dark fruit profile, great depth and structure and a very nice finish.

2012 vintage. Medium bodied. Bubble gum, orange zest, forest floor, Rainier cherry in the nose. Cherry, plummy, cedar flavors on a solid finish. Pretty. If someone was looking for a MOR (middle of the road) pinot to exemplify the current state of Oregon pinot affairs to a pinot newb, they could do a heckuva lot worse.

This is in my top five of domestic Pinot. Elegant and refined pushing the intensity of red and black fruits across a long finish. Awesome.
