    November 16, 2023 - One of my favorite Oregon vineyards. Light and ethereal, with a strong strawberry core with rhubarb highlights. Strong cherry pit bitterness on the palate. Minimal tannin and a velvety texture. Lengthy fruity finish that has the slightest hint of heat that keeps this from the next level.

    November 8, 2023 - Not as lifted and perfumed as when I tasted this 1-2 years ago on site (though this parcel was never the most ethereal of the bunch). It has however put on a bit of weight and continues to do so as you give it air. This has more room yet to go as didn't really hit a stride until 1-2 hours in. Shedding what's left of the floral component leaves a bit more heat than I would've liked, and the nose is just a touch on the cedar-y and cinnamon-y side, but I'm really nitpicking. A solid drink now though I personally will set these aside hoping that they mellow a bit.

    Nose: 89-90
    Palate: 90

    May 29, 2023 - Delicious. Drinking really well with a nice balance and weight. Will likely continue to evolve, but I was very happy opening it now.

    February 19, 2023 - Absolutely gorgeous wine; for me this cuvée fell slightly behind the others (both in our tasting at the winery, and compared to purchased bottles), but that's not saying much, as it's still incredibly alluring and complex, if a little less "focused". It doesn't quite have the pure, lifted, crystalline fruit of the Maresh vineyard nor the endless earthy depth of the Hyland, but it has a little bit of each, with ripe and fresh black cherry on the nose, slightly obscured by tones of wild mushroom and a forest clearing on a summer day (bright herbs, plants, bark, etc.) Zero oak presence, all fruit and terroir. As always this is super ephemeral and elegantly textured, pure silk, with gorgeous acidic energy that never feels needlessly tart. Loved every sip. I agree with others that this could age really easily, even if it doesn't need to.
