Review:

To me the Dundee Hills AVA is all about prettiness and elegance. The wines from this growing region always have a wonderful floral perfume with perhaps even a little bit of savory herbs. The fruit is very red with raspberry and pie cherries being prevalent. The 2010 wines are somewhat typical in aroma and flavor, although there is a bit of darker fruit profile in the wine too. - John

The 2010 Dundee Hills Pinot Noir is exclusively from Anderson Family Vineyard. To me, Anderson Family Vineyard takes the typical Dundee Hills flavors and aromas and turns them up a couple of notches. Their soils are thinner compared to most vineyards in Dundee, their slopes are steep, and the soil is littered with rocks. These 3 elements bring more struggle to the vines and thus more energy to the wine. The fruit profile tends to be darker and the aromas are both floral and full of sweet spices and coffee. - the winery

2009 Vintage

Classic floral Dundee Hills aromatics with red raspberry, cherries, herbs and what I call "tire talc". The palate is rich and weighty with sweet red cherry, cocoa and strawberries. Bright acids help carry the sweet fruit to a long finish highlighted by a touch of dried herbs. - the winery
