Beguiling aromatics of Bing cherries, ripe raspberries, huckleberries, pomegranate, violets sandalwood, earch and wood smoke develop into deeper notes of coffee, tobacco, cloves, black fruit and soft leather. The palate intrigues with red, blue and black fruit flavors, appealin spice and minerals framed by delicate, ripe tannins. The wine's structure builds gradually through the mid-palate reflecting its intensity balance and potential for longevity. This wine is pure example of Oregon Pinot Noir from a classic vintage.
Smooth & Supple
This is an outstanding Pinot for the price. Several friends at a holiday cocktail party asked what the heck they were drinking because it was so outstanding. Plenty of character and a mid- to full-sized body for a Pinot. This one is definitely going to make regular appearances in my wine rack.
