2017 Cedar + Salmon Pinot Noir Willamette Valley $25

Very pretty in the glass with a translucence typical of Oregonian pinot noir. The aromatics are a treat, too. Fleet footed and a little heady, the nose provides an accurate preview of what's to come. Lighter to medium bodied on the palate, the friendly texture makes it easy to enjoy the fruit/acid balance here. What it might lack in complexity, it makes up for in approach ability and value. 88 Points (Sample)
