A nice Pinot Noir from Oregon. Showing red and black fruits with vanilla, bing cherries, light oak, wild flowers, red candy and spices.

Showing mild complexity with a nice mouthfeel. Bolder than expected with a spicy finish.

Nice fine tannins on the finish.
Had it blind and only missed the vintage 😊

14% alcohol by volume.

88 points.

$25.

Great lift and freshness. Its most salient attribute is its well-roundness. Entry level Willamette pinot that over-delivers for the $.

Give some time to open up. Great berry taste and well balanced all around.

A natural wine worth trying. Has some funk, but overall well balanced with enough character to keep interest, but not so much it becomes hipster juice ("if you don't like it, you just don't understand it"). Quite tasty.

Excellent balance of flavours. No harshness or acidity after swallowing

Stunning! Lean earthy loamy profile with notes of rose petal, tart cherry, raspberry, and conifer forest and mineral core.
