Pure, pristine Oregon Pinot fruit with bright cherry-red flavors. Good acidity and tannin, with virtually no earthy character at all. If you drink this wine before the end of 2010, give it plenty of air and it will soften. I would think this wine would age beautifully - I plan to buy two more bottles to open 3 - 5 years from now.
Bright, red-cherry fruit and suggestions of plums are juxtaposed with a deft bit of oak in both the aromas and flavors of this pert and mannerly young wine. More precise than potent and long on the palate, it is just a bit tight as Oregon Pinot is wont to be, but its unwavering focus on fruit makes for easy predictions of goods things several years hence.
