Winemaker's Notes

With its broad array of origins and clones, this wine displays both red and black fruit aromas (cherries and raspberries), on the nose and the palate. In addition, one finds a light touch of brown spices (nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice). True to our house style, it is elegantly textured with satiny, polished tannins showing in the finish. Pair it with salmon or ahi, veal or pork, poultry (think duck) or beef, or hearty vegetarian entrees.

Critical Acclaim

"A little attenuated at first, this wine--its alcohol just north of 13 percent--quickly brightens with air, developing a cherry bouquet with a hint of briar and herb. Cherry flavors drive the palate as well, along wiht minerality that keeps the wine racy racy and pure. It will be slow to develop in the cellar, but eventually will knit with something delicate, like roast quail with wild mushrooms. "
93 Points

"There are 10,000 cases of the entry-level 2008 Pinot Noir Willamette Valley (70% from estate vineyards and 30% purchased) which was aged in 20% new oak for 10 months. Medium ruby red with a charming perfume of cedar, spice box, cherry, and raspberry, on the palate it is medium-bodied, elegant, and densely packed with savory fruit. It conceals enough ripe tannin to evolve for 1-2 years but can be enjoyed now. It will offer considerable pleasure over the next 6-8 years."
91 Points

"Smooth and velvety, this is light on its feet, glowing with red cherry and raspberry flavors, with a hint of mint in the background. Lingers easily on the refreshing finish. Drink now through 2013. "
