Masculine, animal character, almost Gevrey-like nose. Bitter cherry skin and juniper berry. Slightly chewy on the back end- more like red licorice.

An extremely cool savory-fruity aroma and palate, by far the most intriguing wine of about 20 that I tasted through at the winery yesterday.

From 100% estate-grown fruit, Brooks Rastaban Pinot Noir 2011 is a wine of fantastic contrasts and angles. The nose comes across as dark and brooding, laden with black cherries and blackberries, minerals and dried rose petals. On the palate, however, it presents a lighter body than expected with bright acidity, firm tannins and tart red fruits: pomegranate, rhubarb, and rose hips. As with the Janus Pinot, the finish is pleasantly tinged with exotic spices notes. 12.3% ABV | Sample

Oregon Pinot at its best. Earthy, delicate, and phenomenally aromatic. A much welcome break from heady California Pinot Noir. Thank you @Jacob Sembler!

Still a little. Awkward but has potential. Nice fruit and acid may be indicative of a payoff after time in cellar.

Neutral oak, mellow from front to back, moderately fruit. Exceptionally long finish for the price. Great winery and staff!
