A mindful blend of five meticulously farmed vineyard sites, the Dundee Hills Vineyard Pinot Noir delivers a panoramic profile of place. The eclectic mix of blocks—varying dramatically in soil type, vine age, site, and aspect— affords detailed structure in the glass. A genuine sum of its complementing parts, this is the wine equivalent of a tight-knit musical ensemble or stunning mosaic.
The 2017 Dundee Hills is opulent and teeming with balance. Wild berries and fresh roasted coffee on the nose lead to complex stone fruit flavors and the peppery nuance associated with whole-cluster fermentation. A master juggler, the ’17 Dundee Hills handles tannin, new oak, and minerality with remarkable finesse. Driven by quintessential Red Hills locales and flavors, the wine is a culmination of our 25-year legacy—an opus to our special surroundings.
