Pure & bold on the nose with fierce, youthful force. A bit pent-up and in need of more time but still enjoyable now!

I'm partial, I love these wines. Raspberry & underlying barrel spice create layers. Early, but the 14's will be opened young. One of the better tasting "room" experiences in Oregon. Paired with Lucky the Goat's Leg Nachos & a seared plum sauce. Good, really good.

Mo Ayoub’s Estate Pinot from Dundee in Willamette paired with Thanksgiving dinner - perfect match. Light to medium body, with cherry, forest floor, vanilla and baking spice all coming together perfectly in this 2014 estate bottling. Tasted it in Mo’s kitchen years ago and enjoyed my bottle today.

Not Brittan. A very limited bottling of Estate Pinot that was whole cluster fermented. Black fruit with lots of everything. Very Dujac like. Will live for 25 years. One of the very best OR Pinots ever.
