    November 3, 2018 - Popped & poured at a birthday dinner in Charlotte NC at Bernardin's with birthday girl Ray McKinnon and fellow wine lovers John & Malinda Chamberlain who very graciously provided this excellent pinot. Would recomend an hour decant. Mature and in a very good drinking window - no further upside to additional cellaring, would recommend drinking now and anticipate at least another 2-3 years at this level with appropriate cellaring. Dark ruby with no physical signs of aging. The nose has one of the most complex and beautiful bouquets I have ever come across - the medical peeps reading this review will understand when I say that when I am hospitalized and on oxygen THIS is what I want humidifying the O2 circuit, just a melangue of aromatic goodness. Well balanced, full bodied, subtle acid and tannins, minimal oak present and on the palate cherry, raspberry and cooking spices dominate. Just an excellent archetypical high end OR Wllamette Valley pinot - highly recomend this wine.
