It’s a large vineyard, planted mostly to pinot noir save for about 11 acres of chardonnay planted a little over a decade ago. Those vines grew an opulent wine in 2018, made firm and shapely by the coolness of the site and of the Oregon summer. It leads with scents of honey and peach, and has a hazelnut breadth. It’s built like a Beaune wine (no surprise there); for a chicken fricassee. (2,500 cases)

Some attractive, fresh bread dough here with aromas of clotted cream, poached pears and almond milk. The palate has a smooth outer frame (full MLF here) with a fresh, fleshy core that has supple fruit texture. Drink now.

Rippled with butterscotch around fruit flavors of apples and nectarines, this tasty bottle is buoyed with Meyer lemon acidity, and accented with whiffs of toasted hazelnuts. PAUL GREGUTT

The medium-bodied palate is super silky and bursts with tensile, mineral-laced fruits, expanding into a long, juicy and gently honeyed finish.

Wine Spectator, March 2021
Steely and vibrant, with pinpoint notes of green apple and grapefruit and a trace of flint on the long, crisp finish. Drink now through 2022. 2,550 cases made. — TF
