Bright red. Fresh cherry, raspberry and candied rose scents, along with suggestions of allspice and cola that emerge as the wine opens up. Silky and open-knit, offering sweet red and dark berry flavors lifted and given a spicy edge by a jolt of peppery spices. Rich yet energetic in style, finishing with very good clarity and length and smooth, harmonious tannins. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, Dec 2016)

Needs time to open. But once it does, beautiful cherry or tart pomegranate. A little edgy up front smooth finish. Nose is all fruit.

Lighter style for an Oregon pinot. Dusty raspberries, silky tannins. Very elegant.
