This Pinot Noir was the first wine produced by the Drouhin Family in Oregon. Over two decades later, this cuvée has become a foundational element of many great wine lists and personal cellars. The fruit is harvested entirely from the family`s Dundee Hills estate, and the wine is vinified in the Drouhin family style with a focus on elegance, balance and finesse.
The 2014 Dundee Hills is a medium-deep garnet color, with a dark core. On the nose, the wine is refined, with clear notes of spice, rose, black cherry, plum, and sweet red fruits, all wrapped in an earthiness that lends a surprising rustic touch. On the palate, the aromatics follow through with layered spice, white pepper, dark cherry and black berry, framed by youthful tannins. The finish is long and the texture has real depth, stunning.
