RATINGS

93Wine Spectator

Fragrant and lithe in structure, with expressive strawberry blossom and cherry aromas that reveal plush strawberry and spice flavors, finishing with polished tannins.

93Vinous / IWC

Highly expressive, oak-spice-tinged aromas of cherry, black raspberry, candied flowers and licorice. Seamless and lively on the palate, offering juicy, smoke-laced red and blue fruit and cherry liqueur flavors that smoothly blend depth and energy. Round, well-judged tannins shape the long, penetrating finish, which leaves a repeating cherry note behind.

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.
