    December 15, 2018 - An interesting dip into the cellar, but just a bit passed it's prime. Color shading towards brick red. Fruit still showing well, with raspberry and baking spices. However, both the tanins and acidity are detectably on the downswing. Adequate structure still there, but definitely drink soon!

    October 11, 2018 - A bright and clear dark raspberry color, but an odd note on the nose. A bit chemical-ish and spice of the baking sort, one of 'em anyway. Tangy, lots of acid but not unpleasant, but not delicious either. Sigh - it's obviously going to be one of those nights.

    October 22, 2017 - This bottle showed exceptionally well on pop and pour. It feels perfectly aged and the tartness and berries are integrated well with the acid and tannins. Some Oregon Pinots are built for aging and this appears to be one of them.

    April 2, 2016 - lots of plum and cherry notes on the nose and palate. Slightly sweet on the attack, followed by a layer of depth. drinking well and probably will be for a couple more years. That said, there is something missing in that the wine lacks any spice character. This could be related to the age or could just be the wine itself.
