Tasting Notes and Description

Tasting Notes For Domaine Drouhin Dundee Hills Pinot Noir 2019

Our Pinot Noir is handpicked into 25-pound totes, then hand sorted and de-stemmed at our four level gravity flow winery. Fermentations are long and careful and by November, all of our Pinot is safely in barrel. Our barrels are custom made in Burgundy, using oak from France’s best forests, allowing the character of the soil and vintage to show through.

The 2019 Dundee Hills offers a fragrant nose of bright black cherries, berry bramble, orange peel, golden brown spices and a touch of sweet oak. Layered behind are notes of red berries and rhubarb. Flavors of red plum, boysenberry and cassis mingle with a savory trio of white pepper, forest floor and sassafras. Elusive and elegant, this wine is wonderful now but will be in a perfect place with 5 – 12 years of cellaring.

Critic Ratings

Robert Parker Wine Advocate - Rated 96:
The 2019 Pinot Noir Dundee Hills is defined, expressive and layered, with pure lavender, peppercorn and wild berry aromas and a velvety texture with bursts of freshness that highlight floral perfume and an array of spicy accents on the extended finish.

James Suckling Review - Rated 94:
A very pretty combination of dried berries, smoke and cedar with some dried flowers, following through to a medium body, a solid core of fruit and a round yet firm, tannic finish. Young, but so attractive. Give it two or three years to open.

Wine Spectator Review - Rated 93:
Sleek and elegantly layered, with bright cherry and raspberry flavors accented by black tea and stony mineral notes that glide toward the long, vibrant finish. Drink now through 2030.

Wine Enthusiast Review - Rated 92:
This young wine remains stiff and herbal, with brambly berry fruit in the background. The tannins are still a bit abrasive and will need further bottle age to smooth out. The overall mix of raspberry fruit, tart acidity and pungent herb suggests that with time this will evolve into a most complex and interesting bottle.
