Community Tasting Note

  • mos wrote: 89 points

    April 18, 2012 - Very deep rose red color and ever so slightly cloudy.

    Immense nose of strawberry, raspberry, and the smoke notes I love so much in Oregon Pinot. A very classic Oregon Pinot nose.

    Attack echoes the red fruits, with almost a cardamom spicy overtone. Alcohol is a little hot on the mid palate. Tanins are between velvet and smooth on the mouth feel.

    Acids are overbearing. A little more age might help integration but I don't foresee this becoming an exceptional wine. Just a good casual drinker. With the big acids this would definitely pair well with food. Maybe a light tomato based dish? Steak would be over kill.

    For a freshman winery this is a great turnout and I'm very anxious to see how the winemaker matures.
