The 2019 Dundee Hills Estate Pinot Noir is beautifully concentrated with a decidedly complex bouquet. Restrained notes of redcurrant compote and tobacco transition to youthful spice and bramble. Texturally very pleasing, the velvety palate seamlessly blends a kirsch core with an appealing influence of earthy undertones and a touch of vanilla. The engaging finish is luxuriously long and elegant. This wine will continue to develop beautifully over the next 8-12 years. - Winemaker Notes

"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. Try after 2023."

"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."

"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."
