Review:

One bottle each of the '06, '07, and '08 vintages of the Dundee Hills Pinot noir. Perfect for dinner party contributions, bosses that have everything, and hostess gifts.

Dusky Goose Pinot noir Dundee Hills 08 -

Love and marriage, horse and carriage, you know the song - two things that go together perfectly. Add Dusky Goose and Oregon's 2008 vintage, a heavenly match. The nose is like perfume for wine lovers, exotic and comforting at the same time, with wafts of black cherry, orange, clove, cedar, licorice and sweet earth. The flavor flows with voluptuous black cherry, then adds a pulsating ribbon of raspberry coulis. The momentum builds, giving just the right oomph and creaminess. The finish hangs like a trapeze artist - delicate, balanced, awe-inspiring.

When first opened, The Goose is a little shy, so give it some space to open up (I wrote my notes on day 2). The 2008 has serious long term aging potential. Buy it, stash it, love it.

If I had a case of Dusky Goose 08 for every time I've been asked when the 08 Pinot will be released, I'd have the whole Dusky production! So much anticipation and expectation...and the Dusky 08 delivers. For me, it always does. - Marcus

Dusky Goose Pinot noir Dundee Hills 07 -

Balanced and beautiful. A rich and graceful perfume of raspberry, rose, cherry, spice box and raspberry tea introduces the superbly layered Dusky Goose 07.

Replete with sweet, succulent fruit, the palate fans out with dark dried cherry, raspberries and fresh cream, with hints of darker berries. Full and round, silky and ripe, the Dusky finishes with its classic truffle note, caramel, mixed berries and a touch of dried thyme.

The Dusky 07 has a long life ahead of it - our first bottle was open for five days and continued changing, staying fresh through the last sip. This is a highlight of the vintage. - Marcus

Dusky Goose Pinot noir Dundee Hills 06 -

Monumental and mezmerizing, the 2006 Dusky Goose Pinot noir delivers on all of the promises of past vintages. Succulent red fruit wafts from the glass with a deep base note of cinnamon, clove, vanilla, and dark berries, hinting at what's to come. At once silky-supple and powerful, the 06 Goose cascades across your palate with mixed cherries--black, fresh dark sweet, and dried--before picking up the bottom notes of rich blackberry and hints of cassis.

Like previous releases, the 2006 is a big and beautiful Pinot noir, and it maintains a freshness from a bright thread of acidity woven into the ripe fruit. A mile-long ribbon of earth, baking spice, and sweet cherries lingers on, with perfectly integrated tannins.

With the 2006 vintage, Dusky Goose delivers a mesmerizing wine that fulfills all the promises of its past vintages. The just released Dusky Goose 2006 Pinot noir keeps delivering. Some wines' quality goes up and down from vintage to vintage. Not so "the Dusky" - it flys higher with each year. Popularized by word of mouth alone, Dusky Goose Pinot noir is perhaps Oregon's most sought after wine.
