92 points Wine Advocate: "A nose of red and black berries with wafts of licorice and dried flowers. The palate is light-bodied, soft and juicy with a fine balance of bright berry fruit and earthy accents, and it finishes long and perfumed."
In the most technical of wine terms, holy crap this is good. Outstanding Oregon Pinot for the dollar, this wine over delivers then backs the truck up and delivers some more. Marcus's magic with whole cluster fermentation shines here, showing up as a complex fabric of savory and spicy threads to complement the elegant red fruits.
To love this wine is to love the style of Marcus Goodfellow, whose wines have been favorites of ours for many years. His wines are as enjoyable as they are intellectual, beguiling you and refreshing you in equal doses. Made from great vineyards - Whistling Ridge, Durant, Temperance Hill, Fir Crest , Lewman.
2015 vintage notes
92 points Wine Advocate: "...scented of roses, wild thyme and lavender with a core of Bing cherries and warm cranberries plus an earthy/forest floor waft. Light to medium-bodied, the palate provides a wonderful intensity of perfumed red berry flavors with silken tannins and a long earthy finish."
