Domaine Drouhin Dundee Hills Pinot Noir 2019
|Region||United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley|
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.
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.
