Deep dark cherry colour. Consistent blueberry, black cherry and plum aromas. Hints of French oak, vanilla and cinnamon. Medium plus acidity, medium tannins, good dark berry and black tree fruit. More tangy than jammy. This is a serious almost brooding wine. Could be compared with a 2009 Volnay. Def one of the better Willamette pinots I have tasted recently. Scores 24/30 for a Willamette. Solid.
