Pale dusty rose color, with good color concentration out to the edges. Upon opening, this had a very strong barnyard scent. My wife took one whif and declared, "this stinks!" I begged to differ. Regardless, the nose really hit it's stride at about 2 hours and is still going stong at 3+ hours. The barnyard has blown off and a hint of sweet red cherries are combining with wet mushrooms and a touch of spice. This has an almost velvety texture that feels like it is coating your mouth as you drink it. A slightly tart kick at the back gives way to a 20+ second finish. This is a very enjoyable example of aged Oregon Pinot.
