 This is the third vintage where we have managed to land fruit from this amazing Dundee Hills vineyard. The last vintage we bottled, 2014, recently received a 94 from Josh Raynolds of Vinous.com making it one of the highest scoring wines of the vintage. Unfortunately, we did not have access to the fruit in 2015 but we were able to get back into this gorgeous, older vineyard in 2016. As always, we are contractually not allowed to tell you the name of this vineyard as we sign a non-disclosure agreement with the fruit purchase agreement. We suffer this inconvenience since this is one of the great Pinot Noir vineyards in the United States. One thing does differ between the 2016 bottling and the 2014 and that is the composition of the wine. This year the wine will be composed entirely from a 1990 planting of Pommard in the upper part of the vineyard. This section gave the 2014 bottling it’s dramatic dimensions so expect nothing but a high-wire drama production from the 2016. This has a core of red and black fruit wrapped in a tight web on tannin and spice. This is deeply infused with concentrated fruits and coated with gorgeous tannins coming from 20% and 100% whole cluster fermentations this wine is loaded with everything that makes Dundee Hills’ Pinot Noirs incredibly exciting when they are at their best
