    November 22, 2018 - Brought to cousin Mathew's for Thanksgiving. PnP. Ruby in color with a nice floral bouquet. On the palate, the expected cherry along with marionberry and perhaps cassis, but there are also some savory Rhone-like characteristics lurking about. This went very well with the turkey and stuffing. I was in the minority, but by a slight amount, this was my favorite wine of the evening.

    August 13, 2018 - Yamill Carlton and Ribbon Ridge are the most Burgundian in style of the Willamette AVAs and the Pierre Leon seems most to me like the "masculine" wines of Pommard. Medium dark red color to the rim, brilliant and translucent. A powerful floral and tart cherry smell with earthiness and still very light on its feet. Tart with a strong and ripe tannic backbone, I especially enjoy a Pinot that looks ethereal and surprises with its bold flavors. Extended well balanced finish, this wine benefited from a two hour decant. Pierre Leon is a clonal blend from several estate sites and not as complex as the single vineyard offerings from this producer.
