Great blend of vineyards. Fresh, fun and soft tannins. I had it at the winery. Full of strawberries and raspberries.

Out of all the WS wines from this tasting this one definitely felt like it needs the most time.. Quite primary and inward now..

Most subtle and earthy of WS; seemingly more Oregon than Russian River Valley.

This is what a Pinot noir should be. Soft, smooth, heavy with fruit.

Color mild cloudy red.. Dark earthy cherry/raspberry with hints of cinnamon and vanilla nose. Tastes of cherry and subtle blackberry fruit, slight smoke spice and mint and finishes with a mild vanilla and oak flavor. Lovely wine to celebrate our 13th wedding anniversary.

Off the upper deck on an anniversary day..Double decant and pour(min cloudy sediment). A provocative medium/dark ruby red color. On the nose: dark red berries, cinnamon, earthy, hints of vanilla. Taste: Blackberrys, ripe strawberry, smoke, mint, spice and hints of oak. Nice medium to long finish

Evolves over pouring like a Burgundy - eventually the fruit comes forward. Not a huge fan of the oaky vanilla fanfare at the beginning but time will tell. Still a balanced, well made wine.
