Deep ruby in color.  The nose has light cherries and spice.  Much better on the palate.  Complex layers of cherries and earth.  Also some black cherries.  Drinking well.  Long finish.

From a 375 ml.  This is really a nice value in Oregon Pinot Noir.  Sineann makes a variety of single vineyard bottlings but this is the blend for thos which didn't get bottled.  It is always quite good and the added complexity sometimes makes this as good as the individual bottlings.  13.8% this is not huge nor is it "Burgundian".  Ruby/purple in color.  The nose has lovely sour cherries and spice.  On the palate, nice texture.  Cherries finishing as sour cherries.  Some depth.  A nice complexity.  Love the 375 format when a bottle is more than I want to open.

Very good showing for this.  As to whether this is at peak or not, it depends how you like your wines.  Ruby in color, clear and bright.  On the nose, this is earthy with cherries,  macerated cherries and a bit of funk.  Medium bodied.  Complex and layered on the palate.  Cherries, forest floor and earth.  Good balance.  Persistent with good energy.  Nice finish.  If you like a mature Pinot Noir, this was drinking great.

An excellent value in Oregon Pinot Noir.  Under $30, for a complex Pinot Noir that is only a step behind the single vineyard designated wines.  Ruby/purple in color.  The nose is nice with dark cherries, slight sour cherries, spice and slight char.  On the palate, dark and sour cherries predominate now.  These wines tend to be fruit forward for Oregon, but they cellar better than one might think.  With age, they get an earthy funk that is nice.  Good finish and food friendly.
