Great showing for this 17 year old Pinot from Oregon.  Tasted with a group, this was a love or hate it wine, and the issue was brett.  Garnett in color, mostly opaque and bright.  The nose has cherries, sour cherries and barnyard.  Lush texture.  On the palate, there is plenty of depth.  Light tannins.  This tastes young and kept opening in the glass.  Cherries and black cherries.  Long finish.  Drink over the next ten to twelve years.  This will work well Beef Wellington.
