Although we had a cooler spell and a bit of rain in 2013, we got from this vintage the quintessential elegance we strive for each year, with a supple nose redolent of cherry, cranberry, strawberry, and pomegranate. We think this wine is a classic example of Oregon Pinot Noir, showing finesse and texture over size, with velour-like tannins, fresh, Asian spice, cedar, morels, hints of earth, high-toned, balanced very well, and structured in a lean, delicate, silky, light tannin framework that promises further development and long-aging.
