We really enjoyed this wine on my 51st birthday. Light flavorful and east drinking. Read More

A top class wine from the relatively new Yamhill-Carlton District of Willamette Valley. 30mins after opening, this wine shows dense smoky wet earth on the nose with hints of wild cherries. Great aromatics. I keep going back to the nose, but the fruit is not showing much. On the palate it is a denser Pinot Noir, which doesn't say much considering... Read More
