    August 31, 2021 - So, so beautiful and pure. Definitely made in a crushable, ethereal style that trades some sense of "depth" for extreme lightness and elegance- 12% ABV, super airy red fruits, bottle disappears instantly, etc. That said, there's nuanced complexity here, excellently supporting the crushable fruit.

    Gorgeous nose, not super explosive but effortless. It's mostly very high-toned, a soprano expression of Pinot, but there's nice counterpoint between the wild strawberry, raspberry, bing cherry fruit and a really awesome "woodsy" tone- not at all like an "oak" tone but instead a sappy, mineral-laced tree bark kind of thing. I totally agree with the previous commenter regarding the "pine needles" note. Love the balance of wild fruit and that bright, sappy, nearly-funky earth character. Not sure if that's the terroir, some well-integrated stems, or what, but it's just lovely.

    The palate has pretty high acidity as expected (which I love), but it was softened with an abundance of "cooling" tones, lots of fresh mint, damp stone minerality, etc. Only the very smallest amount of softer cherry cola (maybe the only time the oak showed up at all), and that cola note only really showed as we paired our last glasses with a medium rare NY strip. The wine held its own amazingly here, the tiny little tannins playing a great role, the nose staying amazingly expressive, etc. Doesn't need food at all though, nor does it *need* decanting, or aging- even this 2019 was rocking right on the pop n' pour.

    The only reason I'm not rating it even higher at this stage is that I've had a few super-similar Pinots, including from Oregon, for a little cheaper. This is just beautiful and I wasn't mad at all about $50 for the experience, but it was nearly the same wine as Kelley Fox's "Mirabai" PN, for example, which is usually $40, and also reminded me very much of other $30-$35 examples (St. Reginald Parish Super Deluxe, Failla Willamette, maybe Lingua Franca Avni...) Still, wow. Super excited to try this producer's single vineyard bottles.

    August 11, 2021 - Classic stuff: cherry, strawberry, pine needles, herbs, cola, a little smoky and meaty stuff. Elegant and supple, very fine structure but there is nice weight and texture. Long on the palate, with nice tart fruit and delicate spice and earth. A little on the pricey side for an entry level wine, but this is really nice. Should be worth following another 5+
