95Wine Enthusiast

...a stunningly good mix of tree fruits nuanced by barrel flavors of butterscotch and toasted hazelnut. It all leads into a sappy, cinnamon-inflected finish that lingers gracefully...

94James Suckling

This has impressively fresh and focused pears and lemons with a palate that holds very appealing purity and good length of fruit flavor. Classy chardonnay.

93Vinous / IWC

Powerful peach and pear nectar, honeydew melon, tangerine and smoky mineral aromas are complicated by suave floral and buttered toast nuances. Juicy and shapely on the palate, offering lush, mineral-laced orchard and pit fruit and toasted brioche flavors that become spicier with aeration. The mineral and floral qualities repeat emphatically on the persistent, seamless finish, which leaves a spicy ginger note behind.

92The Wine Advocate

...opens with a great streak of petrichor over fresh yellow apple and Bosc pear notes with accents of hay, crème fraîche and toast. Medium to full-bodied and creamy textured in the mouth, it gives up toasty flavors with a great core of concentrated, ripe fruit and juicy, mouthwatering acidity, finishing long and minerally.

92Wine Spectator

Sleek and graceful, with floral apple and Meyer lemon flavors accented by lively acidity and spice hints that linger on the finish.


United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley, Dundee Hills

Dundee Hills AVA is in Yamhill County, and it is entirely contained within the Willamette Valley AVA, Oregon’s best known appellation. Dundee Hills is about 30 miles southwest of Portland, and has 1,300 vineyard acres. It was awarded AVA status in 2004 and, like much of Oregon, is known for Pinot Noir. Several of Oregon’s 20th century wine pioneers established their vineyards and wineries in Dundee Hills, adding to its status as a region long-recognized for producing high quality, iconic Oregon wines. Eyrie Vineyards, Erath Winery and Sokol Blosser remain some of Oregon’s most celebrated producers, and all were founded in what is now Dundee Hills in the late 1960s and early 1970s.
