This Pinot noir exhibits charming aromas of bright red fruits, with baking spices and underbrush. The nose is bright and high toned - very expressive. Medium bodied on the palate with a darker fruit profile, the wine is sleek and silky in texture. Additional notes of black mission figs and plums emerge, with some anise, black pepper and a little forest floor note. In the finish, the wine reveals clove and hints of espresso. Soft, youthful tannins are nicely balanced with acidity, and the wine is quite seamless.
James SucklingA vibrant wine with clarity and tension showing dried strawberries and hints of mushroom character. Medium-bodied, fine and focused. Delivers the Oregon pinot noir experience one expects. Drink or hold.
