94pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Medium ruby-purple, the 2018 Pinot Noir Dundee Hills opens with savory notions of leather, graphite and tobacco with a core of red and blue berry fruits. The palate is medium-bodied with concentrated, incredibly spicy flavor layers, firm and super fresh, and it finishes very long and flavorful. Give it another 2-3 years in bottle.  Rating: 94(+)

93pts James Suckling

This has a very complete and complex, spicy dark-cherry nose with very well integrated spice and bracken complexity. The palate has such beautifully fleshy, rich dark cherries with ample tannin, carrying impressive length and depth. Delicious and already drinkable.

90pts Wine & Spirits

DDO's estate wine offers dusty red fruit scents limned with oak. The wine's flavors are earthy and cherried, with an angular firmness that's propelled by its oak treatment; for the cellar.

 

Winemaker Notes

Our 2018 Dundee Hills is complex and structured, a beautiful combination of flavor, intensity, and backbone. Subtle notes of rose petal, raspberry and dark cherries lead into layered flavors of sour cherries, cranberry, black tea, and plum. Although young, there is an extraordinary balance between the fine tannins and energizing lift of vibrant red fruit and acidity. This is a wine that will be exciting to follow as it passes the 5, 10, and 15-year marks.
