The 2012 vintage was great in Oregon. A warm vintage for us, yielding well ripened fruit that is distinctive for its plush texture. Silky and rich, yet just enough restraint to keep the wine lively and well balanced. Aromas of brown spices, ripe plums, raspberries, toffee and floral notes are forerunners of the mouthful of flavors that follow. Supple tannins and vibrant acidity provide the framework that allows this wine to be both full- bodied and built for aging, perhaps reaching its peak 4-6 years from vintage.

Wine EnthusiastAn aromatic, fruit-forward wine with notes of black cherry cola and brambly berries. It's soft and sumptuous in feel, full of fruit flavors and loaded with appeal.

Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Pinot Noir Rogue Valley has a straightforward and clean black cherry nose. The palate is sweet with chewy tannins, a keen thread of acidity and a blackberry winegum finish. This is decent Pinot Noir at the price.
