A great pinot noir that shows dried flowers, violets and orchids. Cherry and raspberry undertones, too. Medium to full body with an incredible polished texture. Ripe and round tannins and a fresh and vibrant finish. Delicious now but better in 2020.
This delicious wine shows focused black cherry, cola, cream soda and baking spice flavors. It's perfectly balanced, with all components in proportion and settled nicely together. Drink now through 2022.
Brilliant red. Fresh cherry and raspberry on the nose, complicated by candied rose, licorice and musky earth flourishes. Juicy, finely etched red berry and bitter cherry flavors show very good energy, and a deeper, sweeter suggestion of cola emerges with aeration. Closes on a bright, spicy note, with sneaky tannins lending framework and grip.

Medium ruby-purple in color, the 2015 Dundee Hills Pinot Noir is still a little youthfully shy, revealing notes of black cherries and black raspberries with suggestions of violets and sautéed herbs. Medium-bodied, with lovely elegance and expression in the mouth, it has a fine backbone of silky tannins and plenty of latent layers just poking through on the persistent finish.
Domaine Drouhin Oregon's 2015 Pinot Noir Dundee Hills is a delightful wine, with a generous nose filled with ripe red fruits, crushed berries, and spice. Its color is deep and concentrated. Ripe, with incredible structure, the palate is both opulent and restrained. The tannins are very well integrated already, giving this cuvée superb balance and a fine, vibrant character with excellent length. While youthful now, this wine will age well for years, revealing, even more, elegance and depth.
