    August 5, 2021 - A really nice pinot noir. Never had this region, but this is a good start. easy to drink with some earthy, and mineral tones. Cheers

    June 9, 2021 - Taut and crispier on the palate. Maybe just a bit reductive with some spice or smoke character to it? But I've been apparently tasting that this entire week. Range of soil types and aspects. Fruit, spice, earth, and sage brush kinda thing I am being told. Over at $40 but who am I to judge?

    April 14, 2021 - Brick red in complexion, earthy, slight oak and good amount of spices especially anise envelope this light bodied wine from Oregon. It show plenty of red fruit especially ripe cherry and strawberry. The wine has a chalky feel with balanced acidity. The tannins are polished and the finish is enjoyable with a slight tartness.
