    April 8, 2019 - Enjoyed with the last Oregon crab of the season (topping a Caesar - delicious!). Holding up very well, well balanced, but heading down. We’ll try last bottle in 6 months. Fruit balanced nicely with tannins.

    January 6, 2014 - A little bigger pinot with nice acidity. The wine opened up the next day. Typical of most Ayres. They seem to need to breath.

    September 2, 2013 - Aromas of strawberries. Light body with tart strawberries, herbs, and a bit of spice. Finishes with sweet fruit and a touch of spice.

    July 5, 2013 - Lovely wine. We opened this ahead of a "Pioneer Days" at the winery next weekend where they will taste a vertical of the Pioneers from '04 to '11. The '09 is in a great window right now. A tiny bit of alcohol on the nose that blows off after about an hour. Then you get forest floor and spice across the midpalate and a very fruity retronasal (that term still sounds so snooty but I like it!) Long finish for such a medium bodied wine. Now we are hoping to get some more!
