Nicely made and expressive of a full range of AVA-specific flavors, this well-priced Pinot Noir shows off the unique attributes of Oregon's cooler vintages. Scents and flavors of beet root, rosewater and fresh strawberries occupy center stage. It doesn't over-reach, and brings these disparate elements into harmony.
