Medium light ruby to garnet in colour with a medium intense nose.

Smooth and easy to drink, but not your typical Willamette Valley Pinot

Positives: This wine features pine, cherry, strawberry/raspberry mix, light smoky notes and mild forest floor. Medium light body with light tannins, good acidity & a fairly long length.

Negatives: None

Interesting Point: There are a lot better Pinots at better prices

Drink now or in the next 3 years on its own or pair it with BBQ salmon.

Tasted: 25 March 2014

Score: 9/10, Value: 8/10, Total: 17/20

Out of 5 stars, I rated this wine: 3.5+
