This just looks good, pale but vibrant with a lovely ruby tone. It’s very aromatic as well with cherry, soil, black raspberry and hints of pressed flowers and tree bark on the nose. –This is a lightweight wine but its got very nice pure, fresh Pinot fruit. There’s a hint of spice up front, and a touch of vanilla but the mid-palate is dominated by red berry fruit with integrated acidity and the softest tannins. It finishes with a nice mineral edge that gives it some mouthgrab and just a hint of heat. It’s got excellent length and is an all around crowd-pleasing style of Pinot but this is no cocktail wine. 87pts

Nose is full of bright fruits and spices, cherry, black pepper, blackberries. The mouth matches, with the pepper a bit more noticeable, and a body that's mostly composed of acidity, but a bit of oak and tannins on the release. The green apple bite is a little too much for me, but otherwise well built.

Light round almost sweet powdery cherry nose with a touch of dandelion. Medium body with nicely balanced acidity a delicate tar finish. Overall delicate but strong.

Cherry and lilacs on the nose. Very smooth and fruity with sweet fruit notes. Smooth, balanced finish.

ruby-purply pale, light bodied. tannins barely there (close your eyes - is this red-smelling white wine?), good medium to high acidity. wood spice, cherry juice, medium finish. nice.

At first terribly thin, actually watered-down tasting. After a couple of hours it improved, but lacked fruit and depth. A bland terroir-only wine that could best be described merely as "drinkable."

Winemaker's Notes:

Deep garnet, bright ruby tint. Cherry, eucalyptus, raspberry, spice aromas. Pomegranate, vanilla, cherry, oak, lavender flavors. Soft rich entry, nice texture, good weight, long lively finish. One of the most well known bottlings of Pinot Noir in America. Organic pinot noir from our estate vineyard blended with grapes from sustainably farmed vineyards throughout Oregon, where grapes are grown to our strictly enforced standards.
