Another winner, bright sour cherry shot through with funky mushroom and forest floor. Ample acid makes this incredibly food-friendly, while moderate complexity makes it enjoyable all on its own. Terrific QPR.
A great QPR at $17. Love the acidity, nice tart red fruits, and a bit of earthiness. Decent body for an 07 and an inexpensive one. While not overly complex, far from a simple wine. Nice middle of the week drinker.
Damn this is good stuff. Earthier than previous bottles, verging on barnyard, but delicious and mixed with a bright cherry profile. Funkiness toned down some with air, revealing (once again) an awesomely good OR pinot for well under $20.
Based on our previous experiences with this wine, I decanted it two hours before dinner. This bottle was consistent with the others. Loamy Earth, cherry, raspberry, and Oregon funk. Very silky and bright on the palate, with the same earthy-cherryberry profile as the nose. The acid seemed to intensify over the course of the evening... or perhaps it just stood out more once we finished dinner and drank the last couple of glasses without food. We paid $16 per bottle for our case, but I've seen it as low as $14 on sale. This is a ludicrously great buy for a well-made, food-friendly wine with a true sense of place. We'll probably drink our remaining 9 bottles over the next three years or so.
