I think the comparison to a good village Beaujolais is apt in terms of the ability to be a light, food friendly wine that nonetheless packs sufficient earthiness, smokiness, and juicy-fruited flavor to be compelling.
Light-garnet in color, nose of berries and green pepper with a hint of smoke. Medium/light bodied, straightforward and simple on the palate with very light tannin. Reminiscent of a Brouilly or Beaujolais Villages. Drink now.
So far I haven't found many Pinot Noirs I enjoy, but the wife and I did like this one. Very drinkable. It's not overly complex or deep, but it was a nice enjoyable bottle. Entered the above before finishing the bottle, by the end both my wife and I agreed we wouldn't purchase this again. It's drinkable, but not worth it
Beautiful light aromas of strawberry ,a bit of vine, and smoke. Palate is delicate strawberry, a little greenness, and that hint smoke and earth, just a little, that give it some depth. Very well made and was flawless with simple dry rub pork chops.
This is an example of the lighter side of what Oregon has to offer. Don't choose this wine if you are in the mood for a heavier, more syrah-like Oregon wine. Cigarette smoke on the nose with plenty of raspberry and strawberry to back it up. Perfectly in balance (in my opinion), but lacks the depth of flavor to make it an outstanding wine; however, I was expecting much less. Drink soon.
