The wine shows brilliant burgundy color from rim to center and classic Oregon Pinot Noir fruit. Aromas of Bing cherries, raspberry jam, fresh boysenberries and plum compote are joined by appealing floral and herbal notes like violets, iris and peony roses with marjoram, bay leaf and white pepper. On the attack, the wine shows off the intensity and purity of the 2015 vintage with intense flavors of red, blue and black fruits. The mid-palate is impeccable and balanced with succulent acidity matching firm tannins and beautifully ripe fruit flavors. The wine builds towards a very long finish lingering with lifted cherry flavors and hints of dusty earth, smoke, iron, 5-spice and vanilla. Drink now through 2025.

Wine SpectatorLightly prickly tannins surround a sleek, supple core of raspberry, cherry and floral flavors. A hint of savory spice adds to the gentle finish. Best from 2018 through 2022. 10,513 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastBottled to celebrate the brand's 15th anniversary, this "Essence of Oregon" blend includes grapes from 35 different vineyards. It's a lively lovely wine, with spicy raspberry and cranberry fruit, framed in dark chocolate. Balancing acids keep it fresh and focused, and it has some of the lush jamminess of the better 2015 Beaujolais.

Wine AdvocateThis is a selection of the best of the 2015 fruit, in honor of the 15th anniversary. Pale ruby-purple in color, the 2015 The Essence of Oregon Pinot Noir offers up notions of black raspberry and red currants with an earthy undercurrent of dusty soil and mossy bark. Medium-bodied, the palate gives a very good intensity of vibrant red berry flavors supported by ripe, grainy tannins with plenty of freshness and a long, earthy finish.
