Critical Acclaim

"Medium ruby color, spicy, ripe cherry aromas; nice, bright red cherry flavors with spicy notes; silky texture; good structure and balance; long finish. Bright and spicy, this is a great all-purpose Pinot for the table."
91 Points

"Just released, young and tight, this widely available (25,000 case) Oregon Pinot shows the strengths of the 2008 vintage. The cranberry and raspberry fruit has plenty of supporting acidity, while the barrel regimen—a mix of new, one-, two- and three-year-old French oak—brings in cedar, smoke and caramel highlights. "
