This wine has the deep pigmentation, floral aromatics, intense mid-palate sweetness and structured finishing tannins that provide enough fortitude to hold the wine's fruit sweetness well in check. This balances at a very high level. By any measure, this is a terrific, site-specific Pinot Noir from one of Oregon’s classic and historical vineyards. This has incredibly well-farmed material in it and it is a gorgeous wine with great intensity and balance. This is far from “regular” but nonetheless here at PGC that is what it is. Bang for the buck/Quality-to-price ratio/however you want to term it, this wine is off the charts. This has so much to it that it will drink well almost immediately but has an upside that is clearly well more than a decade away.
