    September 17, 2021 - 1st of 3. This is a deep, focused PN. Plum. Blue fruited. Spice. Tart, harmonious. Silky. Long. Really good.

    April 6, 2020 - cherry, hints of graphite. Full bodied for a PN, long and interesting finish.

    The wine looks blonde colored. The legs are fast. There is no sediment in the bottle. It tastes like raisin. The body is full. The wine has angular texture. The wine finishes short. The wine has low acidity.

    November 14, 2018 - Wow, this is delicious. A great offering from an exciting new producer. Reminds me of a good Penner Ash.

    June 22, 2018 - Rich palate of red and dark fruits framed by a touch of dusty tannins. Great now with a bit of air. Probably not a wine for longer-term aging, but tasty for near-term drinking.

    March 30, 2018 - BillyT is on to something here, both red and black fruit, primary, but with a lot of promising pinosity. Much better structure and acidity than other 2015 WV PN I've tried so far, as it seems to be a warm vintage. A firm to watch. This is just in the beginning of a long trajectory.

    February 13, 2018 - Nose full of bright fruit, cherries and black fruit. Whereas the comparisons are inevitable, this Wine emphasizes fruit on the nose and Burgundy emphasizes terroir. Semi structured legs. Beautiful translucent garnet to a slightly more translucent rim. Silky smooth pallate showing balanced acidity but somewhat resolved tannins for a 2015 vintage. As such aging may be in question. For someone who drinks almost exclusively French Pinot this wine is very approachable and a beautiful expression of Willamette Valley and a fantastic domestic Pinot. The only complaint is that in its current state it is not as complex as I would like but it is a very well made wine and worthy of your investment if you are into domestic Pinot.
