  • Used Coravin. Inviting nose of dark fruits, earth, and spice. I liked the ripeness of fruit - not overly ripe and relatively restrained in the context of WS pinots. Tastes of blackberries, baking spice, touch of orange zest. This was overly oaked to my taste, and both the tannins and finish were slightly rough. Maybe this will smooth out with two additional years in bottle. Even so, it's quite nice now.

  • Popped and poured. Followed over 3 hours. Inadvertently grabbed this bottle enroute to restaurant.

    Color is darker then other WS. Nose is quite fragrant with dark Hood River cherries. Masculine. Pure flavors of dark/black cherry, fresh tomato, hint of mushroom, and wet earth. Firm mouth feel that softens dramatically on the very long finish. Nice acidity. Delicious precise fruit.

    Delicious. A masculine WS pinot for sure. I think this was a cooler vintage in RRV. Obviously a youngster, but freakin' tasty.

  • Dark ruby color. Nose of dark fruit, ollalieberry and black cherry. A little vegetal also, maybe a hint of tomato. On the palate, intense rich cherry and blackberry. Reasonably long finish. I feel like this would be much better with some years on it, but drinking well as very rich, fruit forward CA pinot.
