That's right, we're talking party bottle, a magnum of stunning Oregon Pinot Noir from none other than our own Todd Hamina.

How about a few comments from Cellartracker?
Coravined a glass to enjoy and check on the bottle. This is coming together. Cool weather light on top and big earthy underbelly. But really coming together. This will get better! Outstanding!
Oh, my! I have always felt that IF this wine ever came together it was going to be awesome. Still not quite together but WOW! Moderate, slightly thin red color with some browning. Big, crazy nose.
Deep dark garnet, much darker than the Deut Vert. 100% whole cluster. Nose shows the stem inclusion with bark and red berries. Palate has decent amount of acid and the tannins are rounded. There's some smoked oak showing. This is a big wine than DV in every component but not overbearing by any means. There's a lot stuffed into this bottle.
