RATINGS

95Wine Spectator

Elegantly dynamic, with a core of refined crushed-stone minerality, framed by multilayered raspberry and cherry flavors and savory herb and spice notes, finishing with polished tannins.

95Vinous / IWC

Powerful, mineral-laced red berry, cherry and floral oil aromas... Stains the palate with energetic raspberry preserve, cherry cola, rose pastille and spicecake flavors that become sweeter and deeper through the midpalate. Shows superb energy, fine definition and solid mineral thrust on the extremely long finish, which is framed by fine-grained, slow-building tannins.

92+ The Wine Advocate

...notions of tar and struck flint over loam, blackberries and black cherries with underbrush and iodine notions...good concentration and earthy character. It has a firm, ripe frame and wonderful freshness, finishing long.

17+ Jancis Robinson

The red tones of cherry and rhubarb here bring together cooked fruits with their perfumed blossoms and a ferrous reductive element through both the nose and palate.

REGION

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.

TYPE

Red Wine, Pinot Noir

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
