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.

This is a 25 vineyard blend, with the word "Essence" in bold black script across the label. The wine is a rather insubstantial essence, delivering light berry fruit flavors, and a touch of tomato. It finishes with tart acidity.
