Winemaker and winelover.
Holding up pretty nicely after 27 years. Nose shows pretty dried mixed berry, quite a bit of dustiness and a hint of mint. The palate features fully resolved tannins and a velvety balanced mouthfeel. Not incredibly intense or complex but relatively youthful and pleasant with a distinct pomegranate juice character. — 2 months ago
Old school Willamette Pinot that doesn’t try too hard and is better for it. Mixed berry pie on the nose which is comforting and inviting. Beautifully balanced palate, ripe raspberries with a hint of both sweet spice and forest floor, no element too showy, and a velvety smooth medium-long finish. — 2 months ago
Natty in a good way. Not much in the way of tannin, more of a soft and approachable expression. Very vibrant red fruit once the reductive funk blows off. Strawberry, rose petal, a hint of tar - varietally correct (god I hate that term) from the opposite side of the planet. — 3 months ago
