Brilliant ruby-red. Expressive red berry preserve, candied rose and baking spice scents show excellent clarity and lift. Fleshy but lively as well, offering sweet raspberry, cherry and spicecake flavors that pick up a hint of smokiness with air. Smoothly blends power and delicacy and finishes very long and spicy, with supple tannins sneaking in late. This is quite an impressive "basic" bottling of Willamette Valley Pinot Noir. JOSH RAYNOLDS, Vinous

The 2016 Pinot Noir is pale to medium ruby-purple in color with a bright, open nose of strawberry jam, boysenberry and blueberry preserves with touches of spice and earth. Light to medium-bodied, it gives good concentration of red and blue fruits in the mouth with juicy acidity and fine-grained tannins, finishing with touches of nutmeg and forest floor. This is a great value. 12,000 cases produced. ERIN BROOKS, eRobertParker
