I always think "blueberry" when I think Oregon Pinot - this was definitely more sour cherry with some minerality hiding behind it on the nose, but very much a classic Oregon Pinot nose. As with most wines it got better after being open about 30-45mins and really showed off it's smooth, crisp finish with good acid doing well with my cheese pizza. Legs are slow. Not a tremendously complex wine but it's definitely solid with good fruit components and easy to drink. Ready to drink now.

Medium bodied red. Red fruits are layered behind mushrooms and earth on attack. Mid-palate lacking and lacks complexity. Texture is soft, with mild tannins. Benefitted from 30-60 minutes of open bottle time.
