2011 Dundee Hills Cuvée Pinot Noir
This terroir series cuvée is a blend of selected barrels from the Bella Vida, Baptista Maresh, Charlie's, and Abbey Ridge vineyards. The 2011 has a seamless structure, with a subtle earthiness, and intriguing sanguine character and delicate notes of red fruits. The wines are complex and intensely flavored, with great natural acidity, vibrant texture and juicy depth. The cooler conditions produced wines with moderate alcohol and bright acidity; which for us is the style that best shows the delicacy, finesse and subtlety that we are looking for in this noble variety. These are beautifully balanced wines that will age extrememly well for many years.
