Similar to the previous two vintages, the 2016 growing season pushed the envelope for defining the new normal in Oregon as one of the earliest on record. Though it was an intense growing season due to the early start, the fruit produced resulted in wonderful concentration and complexity with characteristic natural acidity.
Balanced and brimming with fruit reminiscent of raspberry and current jam. Higher toned spices open up the mid-palate with a touch of vanilla and mint to finish.

It would be hard to find a better Oregon Pinot Noir at this price. With a lovely, silky mouthfeel, even at such a young age, it brings expressive strawberry and cherry fruit to a full-bodied midpalate. Details of spice and mint add interest and texture, and if you put this in a blind tasting with wines costing more than twice as much, it may well emerge as the favorite. - Paul Gregutt
