A little young but very fruit forward with black cherry and fresh berries. Light in color and unstructured.

Well-balanced between cherry/pomegranate fruit, minerality, acidity, light oak and fine, barely-there tannins. Medium-bodied with a decently long finish. Delicious WV, OR PN that's drinking well right now, but we're going to let the other sit for a while to coax out some more of the fruit.

Clear, medium ruby with garnet hues. The nose is medium (+) in intensity, with aromas of potting soil, forest floor, smoke and toast masking the red fruit. The nose is developed. The palate is dry, with medium acidity, medium (+) alcohol (14.3%) and medium tannins. This has a medium (+) body and flavor intensity and a long finish of black cherries, cola nut and truffle. This wine is actually better on the second day and tastes better than it smells. Drink now through 2017 if you like a more savory, tertiary wine.

I think you guys didn't give this one enough time. I think that fruit in your face thing has morphed to rustic balance. If you still have it, enjoy in a more Burgundian way.

Did not decant. Served with grilled salmon. Nose of black cherries, smoke, and berries, with some soft, tannins in the mid-range and moderate length. Very good and enjoyable Oregon Pinot Noir from an excellent year. I would buy this again.

Wine was even better the second day when I fixed deep fried dove. The wine almost explodes from the glass with cherries, cinnamon and spices, and berries. Full mouth feel, mid range, and finish with good length. I will have to buy more of this.

Just delicious. Earth, bitter cherry, herbs, and a nice balance to it. In a great place.

PnP. Light burgundy in color. Light nose of earth & mushroom. Not really fruity at all. Lighter in texture, which allows it to go well with lighter fish dishes. Wish nose was more prominent and finish was longer. Slightly disappointed.

Enjoyed in a Riedel Vivant Burgundy glass at 60F.

Should've read earlier reviews as this is still too young and tart. Continuing with the shoulda, coulda, woulda theme, we popped, and only decanted for an hour, which was clearly not long enough; however, this wine offered some interesting nuances. Beef bouillon and forest floor on the nose eventually gave way to ash and smoky/toasty notes. There's a crisp minerality with graphite and not a lot of fruit on the palate. We'll hold the next bottle and hope for a better showing in the future.

PnP. Darkly stained cork with no crystals. Medium crimson in color that looks slightly brickish. Prominent nose of spice and lavender that is quite intoxicating. Dare I say smelling this is just as satisfying as drinking it? Cherries and spice on the palate with a slight stemminess on the finish. Seems slightly thin on the mid-palate. Medium finish.

Tasted in both Riedel Vinum and Vivant Burgundy glasses at 60°F.. The Vinum was significantly more concentrated than the Vivant. We had Mahi-Mahi, so we used the Vivant. If you're having red meat, the Vinum is the glass of choice.

Not closed anymore, at least this bottle wasn't. Very rich and distinctive Pinot while staying light with smooth tannins. Very good at the start but better after an hour as you would expect

This was the last and probably best bottle of six. Producer did well in spite of the vintage. Drinking at peak with a great balance of fruit and earthiness. Definitely would buy again. Excellent

Probably should have tried this a couple of years ago. This wine is way past its prime. Finding it hard to say anything good about it. Overpowering alcohol, acidic taste. Too bad - this is the first Expression wine I've not liked...

Good Oregon Pinot, with lots of character--fruit, spice, acidity, tannins. Not too much cola, thankfully.

No new revelations or anything contrary to add over and above my previous tastings in 2013. Very earthy and slightly thin, with the fruit starting to fade. Drink up by the end of the year.
