Community Tasting Notes (202) Avg Score: 92.3 points

  • Simply amazing, still fresh and youthful, intact cork, generous nose, strawberries and raspberries, vanilla, with a long lingering finish. I little more concentrated and fruit forward than many Oregon Pinots

  • Despite the soiled label, importantly, the fill level and cork were in ideal condition.

    Bright ruby colored, medium bodied, vibrant expressive black raspberry and plum fruits with sprites of cherry, cinnamon spice, black tea and hints of graphite and what Advocate called 'bay leaf', with a long tangy finish.

    I believe it is at near the end of the apex of its drinking window, not likely to improve further with aging, time to enjoy!

  • Beautiful medium body (13.5%) ruby red wine. Nice nose followed by a melody of plum and cherry fruit. Super pleasant finish.

  • Clear, light ruby appearance. No evident bricking or signs of age. Aroma shows a little bit of earthy funk, a slightly smoky note and some strawberry. Subdued fruit on the palate with a slight stewed plum taste. Distinct black tea. Finish is medium-long. I wanted more brightness. For me, this bottle may have been past its window.
