2021 Domaine Drouhin Pinot Noir Dundee Hills
Winemaker Notes: Our 2021 Pinot Noir Dundee Hills is youthful and bright, deftly downplaying the topsy-turvy growing season that ended with gentle, ideal harvest conditions. On the nose, the wine is bursting with black cherry and ripe sour cherry tones, with hints of dried violets and lightly roasted coffee beans. The palate confirms the nose with added notes of fresh raspberry, cranberry, and a decidedly earthy touch. This wine is lovely, vibrant, and elegant now, but I think it will be in a perfect place with 5 – 12 years of cellaring.
Wine Spectator - "Graceful and fragrant, with delicately layered cherry and raspberry flavors laced with rose petal, dusky spices and a hint of fresh forest floor. Ends with refined tannins."
Wine Enthusiast - "Ripe black cherries mix with aromas of sugar cookies and beeswax to create a perfume worthy of dabbing on pulse points. Blackcap raspberries dominate the palate, joined by unsweetened dark chocolate and espresso shots. The wine's elevated acidity and velvety tannins join a creamy texture in a most delightful way."
James Suckling - "Fragrant and open pinot with aromas of cherries, wild strawberries, orange zest, nutmeg and white pepper. It’s medium-bodied with silky, creamy tannins. Delicious balance of just-ripe berry fruit and subtle spice. Very long, too. Drink or hold."
