Transparent crimson with light bricking at the edges. Primarily aromas of asphalt and earth, with a bit of dark red fruit and flower underneath. Light to medium body with medium acid and finish, smooth tannin, and red fruit, cola, orange peel, and spice on the palate. Nice pinot in a lighter style.
Pale brick in color. Moderate aroma intensity, slightly earthy with a little barnyard. Medium body, good acidity and low tannin level. Low cherry flavor intensity and a medium finish. Overall muted, waited too long on this one.
Typical Oregon Pinot Noir is not my style but this is above the pack. Definitely richer and fuller bodied, rasberry, cola, spice, light tannins and just enough acidity. Slightly jammy but still a winner.
Great example of an exceptional Oregon Pinot. More tart berry fruits along with cola and pomegranate for me. Rose petal, light tannins, a hint of spice and definitely a side of herbal and smoke to it. Multi-dimensional and full throttle which makes it fun.
From memory. Big mix of blueberry and raspberry on the nose. Transfers onto the palate with good balance of fruit, medium tannin and acid. Very pleasurable wine. For my palate right around 89-90 points.
Nose: Red fruit, flowers. Taste: Big red fruit on the approach, strawberries and raspberries. A hint of cola on the finish, which is quite long and nice. OK, but not amazing acidity. Flavors are very strong, this is not mild mannered... but it's also not terribly complex. A crowd pleaser.
Fantastic pinot. Everybody loved it though many guessed New Zealand. Fairly dark ruby. Lovely raspberry, strawberry, spices, herbs and violets. Mid-bodied with vibrant fruit, freshness soft tanins and balancing acidity. Long finish. I have limited experience with Oregon Pinot Noirs since very few are available in Europe, but the few samples I had have shown me that it is worth seeking some more of them.
Bright red cherry and strawberry pop right off the top (underscored by a hint of brine), riding a tangy, springy wave of acidity. Black pepper, oak, and pleasing tannins peek through mid-palate. Pleasant, subtle florals on the finish.
Had this with New Years Eve dinner at the Country Club. I also had it at the winery in October at a dinner. Nice fruit, very approachable now, good right from bottle without decanting, tastes of cherries, berries, good drinker right now. A step above the King Estate Signature PN.
