A light pinot from the Columbia Gorge (Oregon side). This is well-crafted (by Sineann's Peter Rosback) but simple; a straight-ahead style which fades quickly. The vintage is looking this way in Oregon; early releases of pinot noir have been unusually light, at least by recent standards, and this is no exception.
