That looks pretty good and appropriate for Pinot Noir. A little light, maybe, but this isn't a tannic, dark wine. If taste is good, I'd say it's a win. In the end this could be very good.
Drew, your sediments* are exactly what I’m hoping for. I’m very excited about this wine!

Lol...you give me too much credit! Spell check took over... sentiments should replace the gaffe.

You, however, are very creative!!
Aww, don't be gross. I am not very particulate about these things. At the very yeast, I think what you wrote originally was fine.

Alright the temptation was too much. I'm driving to Portland this week. My blend:
2020 Merlot, Walla Walla Valley WA (X2)
2019 Cab Sauv, Rattlesnake Hills WA
2020 Cab Franc, Rattlesnake Hills WA
I don't have much experience and your journey raises some questions for me.
Why did you press some grapes before they went dry? Is that timing critical? Why do you separate into free-run and then two pressings? Why do you want a gentle press?
