  • Tasting Notes

    • Bright red in color, this wine represents the vintage well. Aromatically driven by cherry, strawberry, and Herbes de Provence with light green spice. On the palate, this wine is fruit-forward and balanced with acidity and structure. Cardamom and nutmeg spice on the finish. This wine, though youthful, shows great structure; a wet spring and warm harvest created delicate flavors and a powerful lasting finish.



  • Pinot Noir, Cumberland Reserve, Willamette Valley – 2022 – James Suckling – 94 Points

    “Serious, well-driven and succulent, with forest berries, dried herbs, crushed stone and baking spices. It’s medium-bodied with bright acidity. Intense and lively with plenty of verve and vitality. Sharp and focused with a long finish."
