Had another bottle, aged well. Steve & Paula Black pursued a dream in 2003 and purchased a 110-acre vineyard located in the Red Hills of Dundee creating The Four Graces, named after their four daughters. Medium Ruby with surprisingly complex aromas of red fruits, herb and spice. On the palate cherry and raspberry flavors with tea and espresso notes adding a bit of pepper spice. Well balanced acidity with fine tannins, medium(+) length, ending with earthy notes. Nice value! Tasting Sample!

Cherry, raspberry, cranberry, currant, oak and hints of dried sage. Good structure and moderate tannins.

Almost jammy. Big red fruit (cherry and red currant), with soft fleshy tannins. Hint of cloves on the finish. Very interesting wine :)

Cherry cola cherry cola cherry cola! Even though the vintage was strong , the oak manipulates and undermines the sense of place. Still tastes super good. I'm starting to understand why Pinot noir is such a polarizing grape...

2013 Pinot Gris. A slight pear crispness on the nose. A nice creamy acidity. Very nice.

Just a solid Oregon Pinot. Some earthiness.
