Lynn scored this wine: 90/100

A truly brilliant Pinot Noir from Oregon. Aromatic bouquet of cherries, rhubarb, and black pepper swirl in the glass, and carry through with a zippy, peppery finish. Perfectly versatile with so many dishes - from cheese boards to burgers. Enjoy now and lay down for a few more years. 90 pts Tasted August 2019
