2006 Vintage Tasting Notes

Van Duzer Pinot Noir Estate 2006 is drawn from seven Pinot Noir clones, each contributing to the whole. The deep purple robe of this wine gives an initial indication of the depth of this exceptional vintage. A complex nose of black cherry, cocoa, tobacco and spice introduces flavors that coat the mouth with deep, ripe fruit. A structure of balanced acidity and soft, integrated tannins extends the harmony in a rich, long finish. - the winery


Early warmth in the 2006 growing season produced uniformly rich, ripe fruit across our 75 acre vineyard. At harvest, hot, dry conditions threatened to send sugars and alcohol levels past their prime. However, the nine clones of Pinot Noir planted in the vineyard weathered the hot spell in good form, retaining their fresh fruit flavors and balance. Van Duzer’s farming method is precisely tailored to the climatic conditions at each vineyard site and to the characteristics of the clone, allowing the winery to allocate resources according to the needs of the vines in each micro-section. At the time of harvest—October 3 through October 9—sugar levels attained between 23 and 24 brix and the grapes maintained a good acid/pH balance. - the winery
