It was almost difficult tasting a Pinot with a bunch of Aussie shiraz, cabs, and grenaches. However the nose on this wine quickly dismissed any problems. Tons of fruit on the nose; mostly red if not just a touch of blue fruit. The palate had much of the same but add some barnyard funk and a touch of cream, but just a touch. That may be the wrong word to use but a touch of some sort of malo. The finish stayed with me for some time. Outstanding Oregon Pinot.

Opened another of these beauties today. Not much to add except the fruit is extremely concentrated. That's something I didn't notice the last time as much. The wine needs more time, or at least, I believe it will improve over the next 10 - 15 years.

Until the next one......
