June 26, 2014 - Nice...but quality falls short of the $24 price. Possibly the over-extraction West Coast style. Won't buy again.

April 14, 2014 - Sweet red cherry and raspberry, spice, some stemmy and smoke influence too. The sweet red fruit is prominent on the palate too, there is an earthy undercurrent that gives it some extra interest. Medium length.

April 6, 2014 - Very dark color. Nose rather faint. Nondescript on the palate, with acceptable varietal character, but nothing to attract attention. While not possessing any distinct flaw, this wine comes across as lacking any particular character or interest. Did not improve or change much after three days in the wine cooler, so I doubt decanting would have that much effect. It is what I would expect from a $15 PN, not a $25 one. At this price point, much better Washington PNs are readily available.

March 26, 2014 - Oregon Pinot Noir (Trent's): Purple/ruby in color. This has big dark cherries on the nose. It is fruit forward and easy drinking. Big dark cherries on the palate as well. very enjoyable. I don't know that it makes old bones, but a nice cocktail wine right now.
