To unpack this Pinot Noir is to dig through layer upon intriguing layer of the storied Dundee Hills appellation. The appellation offers the power of plurality within a single, unique place. The immaculate growing conditions bring every detail of the five select vineyard sites to life—the varying blocks, soil types, vine ages, and clones—resulting in a wine brimming with complexity.
The 2021 Dundee Hills Pinot Noir touts all the hallmarks of our storied appellation. It begins with brambleberry, ripe rainier cherry, blackberry blossoms, cocoa powder, and spice on the nose. The palate is just as lively, with fresh, juicy red fruit backed by graceful tannins and acid. Finishing with spiced oak and a mouth-coating minerality, this wine is a case study in the magic of the Dundee Hills.
