    August 23, 2015 - Translucent garnet in the glass, nose and palate both are very restrained and non descript. Faint flavor of cranberry and cherry but overall missing the character that makes Willamette Valley Pinot Noir, well, Oregon Pinot Noir. QPR is way out of whack on this one and we will not revisit.

    January 6, 2015 - Minimal nose and flavor. Short finish, thin body. Not sour like a bad pinot noir but lacks substance. An average wine by the glass in an average restaurant. Drinkable but not memorable.

    October 6, 2014 - Used a cup for coq au vin; drank the rest. The coq au vin was GREAT.

    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.
