Wine & SpiritsRating: 89/100 - As reviewed by Wine & Spirits Magazine on 04/09. This savory red from the Chehalem Mountains AVA has a rich scent of spiced plum and strawberry jam. A savory density of fruit in the flavors leads to a firm and chewy finish. It's very rich and somewhat unfocused, which a little cellar time may remedy.
