WS 90 pts.  Layers of cherry, tobacco & cocoa flavors mingle against refined tannins, persisting on the finish.  Drink thru 2017.

**Spoiler Alert!!  You just may see this on Wine Spectator’s top 100 wines of 2013.**

Winemaker Notes: Elegant & complex aromas of bing cherries, cranberries, red currants, raspberries & strawberries, a combination of wild flowers & fresh forest berries that epitomize Oregon Pinot Noir.  The juicy red fruit flavors open the attack then evolve in the mouth to darker fruit flavors w/ spice & mineral overtones.  The wine shows ripe tannins & a succulent texture that give definition & lift to the surprisingly long finish.  Drink now.  Has the focus, balance & intensity to age& will become more complex over the next 5-10 years.
