" Lovely aromas include a whiff of meat along with ripe berries, oranges and Bing cherries. This is the winery's most limited selection and saw the most new French oak, adding a pleasing toasty note to the finish. There's a suggestion of coffee grounds, and everything is already in good proportion. Drink now–2025." - Paul Gregutt, Wine Enthusiast

Again, quite happy with this wine - opened my last bottle last night. Big for sure, though I bought this as it was a counterpoint to the Back Yard, I was told. This was Willamette Valley and the Back Yard was Dundee Hills? Not sure why this says Dundee Hills in the description.
