"Open and immediately accessible, this is fragrant and gently floral, with clearly defined varietal character. It opens beautifully into an elegant, aromatic and crisply structured wine, with excellent length. "
" The 2010 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir is already lovely, focused, and precise. On the nose and on the palate, I find black cherry, dried cherry, and raspberry, among other red fruits. The second layer is more floral, with violets and lilac. Give the cooler growing season, this cuvée has more lift from the bright acidity and will pair well with many diffferent foods. Balanced with excellent length, the 2010 will easily age 8-10 years." ~ Winery notes
