Limited release of Dusky Goose's Estate Vineyard in the Dundee Hills. The 2008 Rambouillet Vineyard Pinot noir is an ideal candidate for long-term cellaring. Bold and structured, this extremely limited wine is sold direct and through Avalon. Under the radar, one of Oregon's most exclusive wines and a classic selection for the most discriminating collections.

2007 Vintage Tasting Notes

Damn. The Rambouillet 07 opens up with aromas of sweet raspberry and huckleberry, foreshadowing the rush of bountiful flavors that builds and darkens on your palate. Dark dried cherry strolls in before black berry - picked from the vine and popped into your mouth - carries the finish. Delicate accents of Provencal herbs and pepper add an extra element to the commanding fruit and ultra silky texture. The 07 Rambo is pretty and powerful.

Only 85 cases released - virtually all of it goes into the cellars of private collectors. The wine was aged 8 months in 35% new barrels and prior to bottling, was allowed to integrate in tank 6 weeks for optimal integration. Then, the 2007 Rambouillet waited patiently in bottle for 20 months. Cellar for one to three years before drinking.

A charming Pinot noir with red cherry, raspberry and exotic mushroom truffle on the nose. Ripe strawberry and black tea fill out the palate. Mouth is pretty with rich red creamy fruit, dark cherry and nice acid tannin balance, that reveals a sweet round silky textured finish. Secure now, cellar for another three to five years. - the winery

Even though the 2006 Rambouillet sold out over 8 months ago, the Carters didn't rush to release the 2007. All Dusky Goose Pinots, especially the The Rambouillet, are released when they are ready. There's no rush to market or hurry to get a review to sell the wines.

The 2007 Rambouillet Vineyard Pinot is a blend of three Pinot noir clones: Pommard, 777, and the "Mystery Block" (which is suitcase clone from the La Tache Vineyard brought back from France in the early '80's) This is the second release of a Rambouillet Vineyard designate Pinot noir. - Marcus

2006 Vintage Tasting Notes

Dusky Goose Rambouillet Vineyard Pinot noir 06 is the first Pinot noir from Dusky Goose's estate Rambouillet Vineyard. A beautiful, seamless Pinot noir with an array of red fruits, baking spices, mineral complexity, and lovely balance for long term aging. Collectible.

Rambouillet Vineyard is planted entirely in Pinot noir, in a combination of clones chosen by Andy Humphrey and Lynn Penner-Ash. The Rambouillet Vineyard's first vintage was 2004, and the grapes were combined with Dundee Hills grapes to make the 2004, 2005, and 2006 Dusky Goose Pinot noir, an increasing percentage of the grapes coming from Rambouillet in each successive vintage.

Winery notes: Dusky Goose 2006 Rambouillet Vineyard is an exceptional selection of barrels, each representing separate blocks and different clones growing in the Rambouillet Vineyard. On the nose one gets fresh cherries, rose, light citrus, earth, and vanilla, opening to dense spice of cocoa, essence of clove, coriander seed, cardamom, and forest aromas. To the taste infusion of cherry, black cherry, plums, dense black fruit, complex spice, with balanced acidity and tannins, and an unparalled seamless texture in the mouth. Only 100 cases produced.
