  • Bright cherries lead into a strawberry peppery finish.
    Darker and more full bodied than the more elegant Pinot noirs of Oregon.

  • Ruby translucent color with a cherry, dried herbs and cedar nose. Multiple layers of deep, dark and red cherry, spice and cedar. The flavors are slightly darker and richer than the color would suggest. Medium to full-bodied with a mouth-coating feel and a medium + finish. Nicely balanced with just slightly drying tannins. Very enjoyable and flavorful. Seems to be improving in the bottle and drinking great right now.

  • Dark ruby color with a cherry, dried herbs and cedar nose. Ripe but slightly tart, dark cherry flavors with a good bit of spice and a hint of cedar. Nicely balanced. Full-bodied, velvety mouthfeel with a medium long, slightly acidic finish, and some slightly drying tannins. I enjoyed everything about this wine. A classic, well-made RRV. Another winner from Arista.

  • Plenty of cherry and raspberry fruit. Some hints of licorice. Nice balance and acidity. Finishes with a pleasant cedary fade. A little bit more heat that I would have liked in a Pinot. Full-bodied mouth feel, although it's not all the way up to plushness. A really nice value for the price.

    10/19/09 Similar notes to previous, but I was more taken with how nice the mouth feel is and I didn't notice the heat/alcohol as much. Tempted to add another point to my rating. We'll see what the next bottle tastes like.
