Expression wines are always well received here. How was the 2011 vintage in Oregon? California was a bad year.

We were just out there. It was a weird year if I remember correctly. No rain for a while and the grapes didn’t ripen until very late. Ended up being a good vintage - low sugar / low alcohol

Per the last two comments, according to the winemaker notes up front -
“The Pinot Noir at Zena Crown Vineyard was a perfect match for the classic Oregon growing conditions of 2011.”

Huge disparity of specs published between the Roserock and Zena; wondering why.
Washington sure is lit up.

I like the Expression Pinots. I’m just tapped out now (with a very few exceptions…)

This was one of our few exceptions.
Sadly/happily I know there’s another one coming soonish.
