    September 5, 2022 - As tasty as the last bottle!

    September 5, 2022 - From magnum. Light red in color. 13.7% ABV. Gorgeous nose of red fruits, iron and flowers. Light to medium body with exquisite acidity. The power and structure are in contrast to the color and beguiling aromas. Cherry, cranberry, black tea and minerals on the palate. Exceptional length on the finish. Even more Burgundian than I am accustomed to from Thomas. Best over the next 3-5 years.

    May 28, 2022 - Excellent bottle, not too much spritz in this one and opened over 2 hours in the decanter. Beautiful fruit that is slightly leaning toward tertiary. Delicious

    March 27, 2022 - Strawberry - ruby with some bricking. Cola and red fruit. Robust flavor, but perhaps slightly lacking in mid-palate. Richard "this is what an Oregon pinot should be"

    February 13, 2022 - Had this in 2015 and it was an amazing, fleshy Oregon pinot. Seven years later and it's still amazing but very different. Ever so slight amber at the rim. Nose is tight cherries and plums. On the palate, there is definitely a good amount of volatile acidity and a lot of oomph on the palate. Long finish. I don't think the volatile acidity is a fault even though it hints at acetic acid given the concentration of fruit on the palate. Plus, it blows off with 20 minutes in a decanter and just becomes a rich wine with a tight concentrated body. I don't know if I'd wait another seven years before opening my next body, but I have to believe it's safe for the next five years at least. This tastes unabashedly Oregon: ripe (but not too ripe) fruit, good acidity, and nicely transparent. Yum!
