Our Dundee Hills Estate Pinot Noir captures and expresses the delicate fruit characteristics associated with this varietal, and we balance that with structure and age-ability. This blend represents our entire Estate with barrels selected from nearly every corner of the property. Our 2017 Dundee Hills Pinot Noir exhibits aromas of leather and spice. The palate is rich with dark fruit, dried currant, and a hint of cinnamon. Enhanced by flavors of grilled lamb sausage, or a warm bowl of piperade, typical Basque dish prepared with onion, green peppers, and tomatoes sautéed and flavored with red Espelette pepper.

Deep scarlet. Assertive red/blue fruit, cola, floral and baking scents show fine definition and pick up a smoky mineral flourish with air. Sweet, seamless and penetrating on the palate, the Estate offers sappy black raspberry, cherry-vanilla and rose pastille flavors that are complemented by suggestions of mocha and five-spice powder. Densely packed but lively as well, it delivers solid closing thrust, fine-grained tannins and a touch of smokiness. Aged in 23% new oak.

A wonderful wine, this encapsulates both the natural finesse of Pinot Noir and the precision of the better 2017s. Raspberry, soft tanned leather and sandalwood highlights meld nicely. It's a seductive, fairly open wine, drinking well at this young age, with just a hint of pine threading through the finish.
