Just tried ‘17 again. Family-owned and operated started in 1999 by Dr John and Karen Bergstrom. Medium Ruby with ripe berry fruit flavors, tea and floral spice notes. On the palate, cherry, cranberry and raspberry flavors with herb and orange citrus notes. Fine tannins on medium+ finish ending with slight bitter tea character. Drink now, to me it lost it’s vibrancy, still good but pour a glass if you have a ‘17.

Incredibly soft yet gives an impression of distinct clarity. Light and laden with small red berries and gentle stemmy elements. Nice.

Family-owned and operated started in 1999 by Dr John and Karen Bergstrom. Medium Ruby with fresh ripe berry fruit flavors, tea and floral spice notes. On the palate, cherry, cranberry and raspberry flavors with complex herb and orange citrus notes. Fine tannins on long finish ending with slight citrus character. Drink now while it’s fresh, will benefit from short-term aging. I like ‘17 better than ‘16.

We had the 2017 Vintage on 5/24-25/21. The palate boasts tastes of red cherry, cranberry, blood orange, tea and mild spice. A good Oregonian PN. It is fruit forward, medium bodied with no tannin. A wine that is ready and easy to drink. We had prior vintages and 2012 was better.

The fruit is bit simple but has a good oak and mineral support. The oak is more Bordeaux than Burgundy, graphite and cedar rather than coffee and cinnamon.

Nice Pinot at dinner in Telluride. Dry and mild with red fruits. We have had this before and find this bottle reliably good.

This was excellent @TigerGFP. Drank it after the Merry Edwards RR Pinot and it’s just striking how much more structure it had.

Quite earthy and woody. Dark fruit plenty of tannins. More burgundy than cali. Dark cherries 🍒 and sour apricot.
