93 points Wine Spectator: "Precise and dynamic, with handsome boysenberry, crushed stone and dusky spice flavors that build richness and tension toward medium-grained tannins. Drink now through 2032."
When we say "blue fruits" in a tasting note, what do we mean? I don't see so much as blueberries but more a color spectrum of blue tones and the "coolness" associated with blue. So yeah, this is the Miles Davis Kind of Blue of Willamette Valley Pinot—and it's so cool! Immediately enjoyable without sacrificing depth, a combo of fun fruit and vivacious Eola-Amity savor. -Marcus
Moderate yields and small berries made for intense flavors of blue fruits, sassafras, and rich round textures.
20% Koosah Vineyard and 80% Big Cheese Vineyard, planted on rocky volcanic soils and cooled by pacific ocean breezes. Winemaking was kept to a bare minimum: fermented with native yeast and 35% whole cluster, aged on the lees for 11 months then gently racked to tank and bottled unfined and unfiltered. -Hundred Suns
