Notes of sour cherry, strawberry and orange peel with hints of balsa, hazelnuts, soil and smoke. Light to medium bodied wine with a silky mouthfeel. Slightly disjointed with noticeable acidity and tannins typical of a young OR pn. Medium long finish. Light on its feet with 13.1% etoh. This is tasty now but will probably improve over the next 5 to 10 years. At that point, this wine will definitely appeal to those who like a more delicate styled expression of Pinot noir. Lacks the complexity and body of pinots from 08 and 05, but outstanding nonetheless. Red guy A- (based on potential).
