Added Aug 21, 2009 at 9:56amDrank this last night with a simple salad of grilled chicken and goat cheese. Wow... pretty amazing pinot for the price. Good earthy backbone, fruit is mellow and not over-ripe, good oak nose / flavor, silky finish and a bit of licorice/anise spice on the nose. Highly recommend as an entry-level pinot noir! 2 wino thumbs up!!

Added Aug 20, 2009 at 3:25pmGreat fruity pinot out of Oregon. And a stellar deal! I paid about $18 for a bottle while vacationing in VT for my birthday. What a treat! Even got my boyfriend hooked on pinots from the PNW! Strawberries, a bit of raspberry, some rosepetal notes, good solid Oregon terroir, not overly fruity like some of the cheap wines. Nice earthy red fruit! would be great with a Cana de Cabra goat cheese and honey on a baguette. Quince paste would be a nice side to pair as well! Highly recommend!

Added Aug 18, 2009 at 2:58pmAs soon as I took my first whiff, it was instant heaven! It’s got quite the bouquet of jammy fruit, some violets and the oak is to die for. Clearly a wine from Spain. I mean, you can smell the earth and in fact, I think I picked up a little bit of truffle on the nose with such a lovely sweet oaky (french) background. It’s RICH! I took the first sip which brings a lot of blueberry, some chocolate notes, dark current and oak, again on the finish. It is a very nicely balanced wine. Although, letting it decant helped to smooth out some of the alcohol at the beginning. But the most impressive thing I found about this wine was the finish. It lingers like none other! Like a blackberry jam gets stuck to your tongue. Sticky and fruity! Expect to drink this SLOWLY. The finish lasted about a minute each sip.

Added Jul 2, 2009 at 10:02amA crisp, peppery white, with notes of green bell pepper, citrus (lemon / lime) even some young tart grapefruit. A tad acidic, so much more lovely when paired with a light meal. Finish was long and it held up to other earthy flavors, such as portabello mushrooms. I paired it with Artichoke stuffed raviolis that were topped with a beure blanc sauce, portabello and fresh spring peas. Added some thyme which brought out some grassy aromas on the wine itself. The wine is rather dry, so food will soften the palatte. Enjoy!
