90 points
This is a qualified 90. Not a 90 in the sense of lasting greatness. Not a 90 in the sense of depth and profundity. No, its a 90 in the sense of here and now, drinkability. This is an early drinking cuvee and at probably just a little past two years from vine, it certainly is. Its light with a nice blend of savory, medium fruits, great perfumed nose and a streak a minerality that cuts and yet holds everything together nicely. Its not overdone, over extracted, over everthing'd but its not a light weight rose in drag either pretending to be something its not. Its just a really nice O-noir for here and now.

Purchased in Portland over the summer, not sure its available on the east coast or outside of Oregon for that matter. So take a trip. No candy, no cola, Oh that a simple C-noir could be as nice.......

So my question to the Guillen Family - as Esteban ages will you update his picture on the label? Please do - it would be cute.
