Interesting to see all the old notes, because this wine gave me the impression of still needing more time. There is a slight edge of tannins and greeness covering fruit that ranges from a tart cranberry to a deep plum. Unfortunately, the bottle I opened had a barely detectable moldy cardboard component that indicated TCA. Letting it sit for a day brought it out a bit more. Borderline, still enough that I opened something else to drink instead. Unrated accordingly.
Much nice than the last bottle of the same... maybe it was the added time in the bottle. Noticeable alcohol on the nose when first opened, but burned off after less than an hour in the decanter. Crisp acidity and ideal Pinot body in my opinion. Went very nicely with homemade crab cakes and asparagus. A nice effort for an on sale $20 Oregon Pinot, but probably wouldn't pay more.
Very nice, typical example of Oregon PN. Quite concentrated with cherry cola, and vanilla notes, with a subtle touch of funk that's there but quite dialed down. Broad and mouthcoating. Very modern. Nice, but not distinctive in any way. 87.
