A Best Buy designation from Wine Enthusiast: This is handsdown the best value Pinot Noir made in Oregon, year in and year out
It's firm and full-bodied, perfectly ripe, with lovely spices that range from pepper to cinnamon and allspice. The fruit lingers in the mid-palate, round and tangy, with flavors of cherry and plum. It's a thoroughly rich and satisfying wine that is big enough to work with dark poultry, salmon and even veal." From the International Wine Review: "Sourced from several small vineyards throughout the Willamette Valley. Medium ruby with aromas of spicy, brambly red fruit. Light weight and elegant on the palate showing modest flavor intensity of red cherry fruit. Good acidity with ripe tannins and a clean pleasant finish. A bargain for the quality.
