Beautiful baking spices romance the nose. Lightweight with pleasant acidity and bight young soft rosey cherries.

Very good OR Pinot. Well integrated mix of fruit and barrel flavors, blackberries, black cherry. Ripe and focused tannins. Delicious.

Excellent for the price, but lacks the depth and complexity of other Oregon pinots in the slightly higher price range

Drinking US pinots this week. First up is from Ehren Jordan’s project in Willamette Valley. Impressive Pinot here - great winemaking. Fruit from Eola and Chehalem. 30% whole cluster + 15 % new oak. Ripe cherry, crushed flowers, and hints of mocha on the nose lead to pomegranate and earthiness on the palate. Smooth tannins and savory mouthfeel. Nicely done. 2018 vintage on Mar 20, 2020

Offers more transparency and dynamics than Swan but feels slightly loose.
