  • At the opening this was a lot of bright cherries. It opened up and softened over time with some spice and earth. I lighter style Pinot, but lacking the elegance and finesse. I was left disappointed.

  • popped & decanted on the fly (to replace the corked candidate we'd intended to accompany dinner, this bottle was the next one in the queue - about 1/2 tsp. of grainy sediment); med garnet - red, lightening to red - gold rim; 58 - 60 degrees straight from cellar, so closed aromatically, but eventually showed earth, toasted brown spice, black fruit compote; med++ body; robust & concentrated roast-ey fruit quality, dark cherry concentrate, delightfully obvious in its Oregon origins, rustic & earthy but with a genuine sense of place about it, so very satisfying; still a little tense on the gritty finish. Mark V. would probably disdain the food pairing, but had more than enough gutsy cojones to not only stand up to, but complement the food.

    sunny side up quail eggs (7 each) w/pickled ramp & pimenton aioli on mixed summer pole bean, rosegold potato & cherokee purple tomato 'hash" w/spicy soppresata & local radicchio

  • Popped and poured. Started with firm and ripe black fruit aromas and subtle spice, which boomed and expanded over the couple of hours open. Flavors were also black cherry and blackberry, starting firm and somewhat tannic, softening after approx 30-45 minutes, then really becoming more interesting once open an hour+.
