Unfortunately, winemaker Jesus Guillen was struck down by cancer that came on rapidly and he passed at the end of 2018. While he is tragically no longer with us, we do have this pinot noir from the last vintage that he was directly involved in making. This wine is entering a perfect stage for drinking, and delivers unbelievable value for the price. In fact, I have not had an Oregon wine like this for the money in quite a spell, except our own Salmon Creek -- and that's not going to reappear for a long time. So those of you who like stupendous bargains, this is your wine.

From Vinous: “Bright ruby-red. Ripe red/blue fruits, candied flowers, cola and a spicy nuance on the perfumed nose. In an ample style but not lacking for energy to its sappy, spice-inflected black raspberry and boysenberry flavors. A bitter chocolate note appears on a long, youthfully chewy finish that features sneaky tannins and lingering licorice and botanical herb notes. -- Josh Raynolds”
