2015 Dundee Hills Pinot Noir
Crafted exclusively from estate fruit, our Dundee Hills Pinot Noir is made in an elegant, approachable style. The nose opens with notes of bright red cherry, blueberry and hints of red roses. The palate is balanced, yet textural with well integrated tannins.
Warm and temperate spring weather prompted an early bud break as well as perfect weather for ideal fruit set, thereby producing larger, luscious clusters with lots of berries. The consistently dry weather and summer sun beautifully ripened the fruit until the end of August when a cold front came in and slowed down the sugar accumulation of the fruit and assumed trajectory of our harvest. Consequently, we were able to bring in the fruit as the flavors presented themselves. As a result, the wines are concentrated with complex layers and bright acidity.
