A serious Pinot but not lacking in joyful exuberance (thanks to the forwardness of the vintage), its blackberry and blueberry fruit core is decorated by a mushroom and rosemary-like savoriness. Actually, tasting it with Brad got us (or me, at least) talking about how we describe certain x-factors in Pinot noir. One of the elements I find most attractive in Oregon Pinot in a resinous quality akin to a combination of rosemary branch and sweet pine resin. There's more to it than that. The problem comes in translating that smell and taste into something that actually sounds appealing to others! I've had some failures along the way and will keep working on the perfect descriptors.
