RATINGS

91Vinous / IWC

Ripe dark berries, candied flowers and a mocha nuance on the fragrant nose. Broad and fleshy on the palate, offering concentrated blackberry and cherry flavors enlivened by a peppery nuance that emerges on the back half. Closes smooth and long; plush tannins shape lingering dark berry fruit and cola notes.

91James Suckling

...dried-flower, white-pepper and light asphalt aromas. Medium body, firm and silky tannins and a flavorful finish.

90Wine Spectator

Firm and chewy, with a gleaming core of apricot-accented blackberry and Szechuan peppercorn flavors that play against the tannins without becoming fazed.

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.
