James Suckling writes: Aromas of baked strawberry, ground coffee, violet and bark. Medium-bodied with silky tannins. Fresh fruit with darker undertones adding complexity. Crisp at the finish. Drink now. - James Suckling 91

Wine Enthusiast: Cherry fans need to rally around this bottle. The wine’s sweet, black-cherry aroma is almost cassis like in its intensity. Notes of orange, pine needles and forest floor add interest, but from the backseat. The palate features a lighter cherry flavor—perhaps Bing or Rainier—with notes of thyme and seared steak. The wine feels fresh and lively in the mouth, with brilliant acidity. 92 Points

 

Winemaker Notes

Textbook Willamette Valley Pinot Noir with juicy, fresh fruit and berry flavors - think dark cherry, blackberry, more cherry. Black tea, anise, clove, mocha and vanilla accents abound adding complexity. The texture is ripe and plush with a line of acid running through to keep the wine vibrant. The wine is all about focus, electricity, and verve.

James Suckling writes: I like the crushed stone minerality here, alongside aromas of cherries, violets and cacao beans. It’s medium-bodied, firm and nicely framed. Excellent focus. Drink or hold. - James Suckling 91
