Ken Wright Cellars:

Then high-pitched and intense in the mouth, with a penetrating quality to the sappy raspberry and h... Stephen Tanzer.

Effusive bright cherry aromas lie beneath traditional Willamette scents of fresh earth with hints of dark wood bark and smoky spices. Here is a classic 2008 vintage on the palate: pure, medium weighted black cherry and cranberry that are framed with ... Chuck Hayward.
