Warm and lightly jammy lingonberry fruit greets the nose with a touch of dried beefy concentration and some lightly aromatic herbal background notes. Zesty on entry and very focused in the mouth with a tight, acid-driven core of blackberry fruit that is faceted and complex. This has wonderful structure, balanced yet firm, with a mid-palate that really fills out on the backend and a long finish that reveals snappy red fruits laced with subtle mineral tone. 92pts

Not your typical Pinot --in my experience anyways. The coloring and texture strike me more like a Zinfandel. The wine possesed strong fruit flavors with an earthy nose.

This Pinot Noir comes from the Willamette Valley of Oregon. This wine shows gamey fruit - berries and spicy flowers. Unfiltered and distinctly natural on the palate with a tremendous amount of character for a wine coming from the New World.

A strikingly good Pinot, and extremely limited. The nose has earthy, peppery, and ripe cherry, and flavors are of red pie cherry, fresh red raspberries, black pepper, cinnamon, and brambly, well integrated tannins. There's bright acidity and lovely balance.

Winemaker's Notes:

Josh Raynolds (International Wine Cellar): Light, hazy red. Redcurrant and strawberry aromas are complemented by notes of white pepper and dried herbs. Light-bodied and a touch dry, offering brisk red fruit flavors and no apparent tannins. This easy-drinking pinot finishes with good clarity and sweetness. (May/Jun 2009)
