July 19, 2013 - Classic Burgundian style, really enjoyed the earthy, subtle tones. It complemented our oysters well.

June 19, 2013 - My wife popped and poured this one night, then we finished a couple nights later. Nice aroma of cherry - it's dark on the initial taste and mid-palate, but finishes just slightly tart.

March 7, 2013 - Willamette Valley Wines presents: Pinot in the City (City Winery, Chicago, IL): Nose: Pretty and elegant nose with aromatic tones of roses, spice tones, red fruits, and red cherries.
Taste: Medium bodies with medium+ acidity and silky tannins. The tones of roses, spice tones, red fruits, and fresh picked berries lean towards the feminine.
Overall: This is a lovely Pinot. It has a more feminine style to it and is very attractive.

October 10, 2012 - Young vintage but wanted to try it early since Nuthouse is a favorite of mine.
Day 1: Very tight and the nose is slight at best. Good acid and tannin but found weak cherry, cranberry with hints of the earthy volcanic soils of the AVA. I will let this sit in the cellar for a year and see what 2013 brings.
Day 2: Not much change... The nose is light with not much behind it. The fruit is there but very hidden yet. Acids and tannin structure is there, but not much hanging from it.
