This tasting note is for their 2012 vintage, sorry.I had this in their tasting room. This wine was intended to be their take on Beaujolais, with carbonic maceration-fermentation and 90 days from harvest to bottle! No surprise here, this wine ain't your normal Oregon pinot noir. Couldn't agree more with the previous review - we both had "liquid fruit salad in a glass" in our tasting notes! This wine is refreshing and fruity, with notes of strawberry and bubblegum, but also still dry and - surprise - interesting! It still keeps some of the complexity and doesnt just taste like alcoholic grape juice (think bad Beaujolais). Moderate length. I normally don't like the simple fruit forward wines, and I still really like this.

As refreshing as liquid fruit salad in a glass, this wine opens with vibrant aromas of cherry cola, plum and cinnamon that leap from the glass. Flavors mirror aromas with a fruity and sweet entry followed by explosive flavors of cranberry and raspberry. These flavors are highlighted by a hint of white pepper and smoky overtones. The medium-bodied mouthfeel is round and juicy with balanced tannins leading to a lip smacking finish. This wine is meant to drink young. Enjoy now through 2015. - Winery

Winemaker's Notes:

Refreshing as liquid fruit salad in a glass. This wine opens with lively red fruit aromas complimented by hints of anise, violets and a slight earthiness. Flavors mirror aromas, leading with a backbone of cherry, followed by sweet-tart strawberry and cranberry flavors with notes of vanilla and spice. Plush, fruity tannins and lively, balanced acidity lead to a crisp, lip-smacking finish.
