Cedar hedge and night-time fireflies that fly around your closed eyes against the star-studded sky as the fire dies. Medium-bodied and ultra smooth with fleshy cherry flavour. Pair with a sigh.

Reviews and Ratings

Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Absolutely alluring! Red cherries, stewed raspberries, and spice aromas dominate the nose. Tart juicy pomegranate flavours linger on the palate offering a high mouthwatering acidity balanced by fine tannins and a long (pithy) pink grapefruit finish. Enjoy with a Cinco de Mayo chili con carne stew. Tasted April 2017 by @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Brilliant pale ruby and delightfully pretty nose of ripe red berries and cherries indicative of the very warm summer of 2014 in Oregon. An overlay of cracked pepper and vanilla, with strawberry, violets, toasted oak and forest floor rounding out the profile. Pale ruby in colour but has some good medium-bodied weight to it. This smooth, fruit driven Oregon Pinot will not disappoint. Pair with your favourite game meat, pizza, hamburger or sip it on it's own. The pairing partners are endless...
Tasted: April 2017
The 2014 vintage of Pinot Noir in Willamette Valley was a strong one, with lots of sunshine, warmth and mostly dry weather favouring the Pinot Noir grapes. This is a very elegant Pinot Noir with the classic raspberry, strawberry flavours, balanced acidity and finishing long. Drink now and for the next five years. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
