2015 was another fine, warm year with full ripeness in the fruit which allowed the fruit notes in the wine to be more black fruit driven (boysenberry, black cherry, blueberry and cassis) than red fruit (cherry, cranberry and raspberry). This brings more depth and concentration to the wine, along with a fine balance with all components getting along well with each other. This makes the wine a synergy and much more enjoyable. The wine is rich and deep with flavors of boysenberry, cassis and white pepper. On the finish is the sweet flavor of toasted oak from over-priced French wine barrels. This wine will wow when served with roast lamb.

A really drinky Pinot from this Oregon producer. The fruit is round and ripe, more cherry and boysenberry than cranberry. Balanced acids and some light tannins make this one a crowd pleaser no matter what style of pinot you prefer. Taste during our live stream on May 1st (see http://www.facebook.com/vintagewinecellars/live for the replay). 5 stars
