Reviews and Ratings

Colette Martin rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Medium ruby color with aromas of tart cherry, herbs and pepper. Red cherry and cranberry on the palate with lively acidity balanced light tannin and a hint of cedar. Medium bodied with a lovely lingering finish.
Courtney Flood rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Very herbal nose, and a fresh acidic wine. Cranberry, raspberry, tomato, tomato leaf, basil, tarragon, lasting mouthwatering acidity. I would definitely pair this with a pasta or pizza with fresh tomato sauce.
Craig Haynes - WSET3 FWS SWS IWS rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Food friendly and fruity. Red fruit abounds from this Oregon pinot noir. Cedar and white pepper, too. Dry, medium bodied featuring stunning shades of ruby and a jammy finish.
Perry rated this wine as 90/100
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Aromas of cherry, tobacco, earth, leather and spice. Medium bodied with bright acidity, lots of red fruit, and a smoky, leathery finish. Enjoy with pork or salmon.
Jay Denney rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A solid representation of Oregon Pinot here. Plenty of Chelan cherry, with smoke and dried herbs. Well balanced.
Pam Hatton rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Light ruby with pale edges. Nose of cherry, cranberry and subdued spice. Cherry and tart cranberry come through on the palate with a bit of earthy undertones. Light tannins and sweet acidity makes it food friendly. Try bbq salmon and tomato/herb based dishes
Simon Chen rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Very gentle and easy-going pinot noir that's not too modern in style. Good acidity and earthiness, nice sipping wine but don't have many characteristics to pair with food
Lynn van der Linde - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Cedar and rhubarb aromas transform into tart cherry and white pepper flavours.
Pair with cheese and charcuterie boards.
Tasted November 2019.
Colin McKone - Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Light ruby in colour with aromas of tart cherry, cedar and pepper spice. It is medium bodied with light tannins and light acidity with favours of black cherry and spice with a medium peppery cherry finish. This will pair well with poultry or salmon. Tasted on November 17, 2019.
Wineboy rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Lots of cherry fruit with a herb accent which arrives mid palate and lingers.
