Reviews and Ratings

Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 84/100 with the following review:

Could time in the cellar tame the acidity in this Oregon Pinot Noir? Dark cherry, vanilla, dried herbs on the nose. Black cherry, pepper, oak, smoke and high acidity. Needs food.
Planked salmon, rosemary encrusted pork, roasted duck.
Tasted: May 2015
Typical Oregonian Pinot Noir with juicy acidity and a medium body with smooth texture. - 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.

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.
