Domaine Drouhin Pinot Noir 2016
|Region||United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley|
Precise and polished, with slightly brooding black cherry and green tea flavors that fan out and build structure toward fine-grained tannins. Drink now through 2025.
The 2016 Dundee Hills Pinot Noir is pale to medium ruby-purple with a nose of warm red cherries, dried cranberries and crushed blueberries with accents of Earl Grey tea, dried leaves and earth. Light to medium-bodied, it has good concentration of red and blue fruits in the mouth with forest/earthy touches and cinnamon suggestions, with a good frame of fine-grained tannins and lovely juicy acidity, finishing long and spicy.
This lovely and seductive wine from a top producer delivers a supple, smooth and silky mix of orange peel, strawberry compote and chocolate bonbon flavors. At its relatively modest price, you can't hope for a better value for iconic Dundee Hills Pinot Noir.
