The 2018 vintage is a brilliant example of Pinot Noir from a consistent and warmer than average Western Oregon growing season. In the glass, there is a garnet-colored center with bright ruby edges. The nose has rich, fruit-forward aromas of bright Bing cherry and raspberries, with hints of cinnamon and baking spices.
The palate echoes with ripe strawberries and dark chocolate up front, followed by earthy and spicy notes of forest floor and clove. A lovely medium-bodied pinot noir with fine-grained tannins and refreshing acidity, expect this wine to age beautifully through the next decade.
