We had many questions before the harvest, but in barrel, these wines have been a pleasure. Delicious, well-structured, well-balanced. On the nose and on the palate, it is very much a classic expression of our Dundee Hills property, with a touch more black cherry and black fruits than usual. The acidity is bright, and overall, there is nice structure and very good length.
Outstanding representation of a very good Oregon Pinot with some French elegance and finesse.
reviews are for '03. the '11 is more tannic than other pinots but we both liked it.
Very smooth, light and drinkable with some depth. . Always remember Dundee Hills.
Very, very, fruit forward Pinot. Dark cherry, slightly acidic. Medium body.
The standard for all Oregon Pinot Noirs....French Family, Oregon Soil.
