Cherry, raspberry, currant, dried sage and oak. Great structure and moderate tannins.

A very restrained style. Maybe a hair too much acidity for me.

Nose of smoked Gouda, fresh cilantro, and pressed carrot juice. The palate introduces baked blueberry and tart blackberry.

2015: Restrained with almost no acidity- this Pinot is velvety soft and full of red fruit notes

Deep dark raspberry fruit, and maybe ranging to red plum with a hint of veogeot-like fruit liquor, and a hint of eucalyptus. Soft mouthfeel with lovely medium to medium to medium + acidity. Finishes with a flourish of rose and brighter fruits. Very And beaune-like for an Oregon Pinot

2011 pure clear lovely expression of the vintage. Not trying to force lots if extraction or new oak. Red fruits and minerals. Not sure it has the complexity for a wine of this
price,.but a really nice drink with lamb stew and noodles. The opposite of some Willamette 2011s that winemakers tried to Force the issue. Day 2 kind of falls apart. More oak on palate and fruit becomes confected. Drink up folks. Day 3 lost all fruit! 🍇😡

Classic Dundee Hills Pinot. Bright red fruits with solid structure and acidity. Still needs time, but quite tasty now.

Actually this is the 2010 Murto Vineyard. Bright red fruits, lively acidity and a nice finish. Tasty!
