Sipping Fine Wine

Medium Ruby, darker than most OR Pinot’s, with red fruits and a bouquet of floral spice. On the palate blackberry, plum and cherry flavors with citrus and rustic notes of espresso, cacao and licorice wrapped in savory oak. Fine soft tannins, long finish ending with fruit and savory spice. Very Nice! Can benefit with cellar aging.

Supple and sexy, this is anchored in purple and black fruits, accented with a wash of coffee liqueur. Further barrel-related flavors bring malted milk candy into the mix, yet the wine remains balanced and beautifully integrated, and none of the expressive flavors seem overdone.

Shimmering red. A complex bouquet evokes fresh red berries, candied flowers, smoky minerals and baking spices. Juicy, subtly sweet and lively on the palate, offering spice-tinged bitter cherry, raspberry and floral pastille flavors that turn deeper as the wine opens up. Closes spicy, focused and impressively long, with well-knit tannins contributing gentle grip. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, August 2020)

Hey, I’m not down for Pinot very often but this one pulled a surprise on me. I liked it, I really did!

Very typical west coast pinot noir nose and palate. No real depth or individual character. Won't buy again.

Solid wine. Bigger body than I would expect from Oregon but hits the mark. Great with meat and cheese. Beemster and Pinot. Yum.
