Not very aromatic, this builds up in the glass with classic raspberry and sage aromas associated with Oregon Pinot. It's fairly spicy in a floral/herbal way and has a lovely note of arugula at its core. This enters the mouth showing excellent integration with a sweet edged ribbon of black cherry and lingonberry fruit opening on the mid-palate, but then the tannins become more obvious and a touch aggressive. The fruit is lovely and has hints of stones, earth and blueberries adding complexity before the tannins add a touch of woodiness to the earthy finish. This could come around nicely with another year in the bottle, but today it needs some fatty food. 88pts

Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes were harvested by hand, sorted, and destemmed into 1-1.5-ton vats. The fruit cold soaked for seven days, then primary fermentation began. The vats were punched down 2-3 times per day, then once a day toward the end of fermentation. The bins were pressed at dryness, and settled overnight before racking to 25% new French oak barrels. The wine aged for ten months and was racked prior to bottling the following September.

Tasting Notes:

Aromas of dark cherries, nutmeg, allspice, and a hint of black tea fill the glass. On the palate, this wine shows abundant dark berry fruit--more cherries, black raspberry, and a bit plum. Tannins are smooth and integrated; finish is very long with black pepper and clove.
