RATINGS

94Wine Spectator

Nuanced and elegant, yet dynamic at the core, with multilayered cherry and tart blueberry flavors, accented by field stone and savory forest floor notes, building tension toward refined tannins.

93The Wine Advocate

...notes of tar, struck flint and smoke over a core of tangerine, bright red cherries and berries, underbrush and clove...palate is medium-bodied and silky with intense, nuanced fruits, a ripe frame and seamless freshness, finishing long.

17Jancis Robinson

Perfumed aromatics of red cherry and cherry pit are accented by ferrous and reductive notes. Juicy, mouth-watering acidity opens the palate carrying a red-cherry and cherry-bark flavour touched by a lightly minty accent.

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.
