Drouhin d'Oregon Pinot Noir 2016

Drouhin d'Oregon Pinot Noir 2016

The 1988 Classique Pinot Noir was the first wine produced by the Drouhin Family in Oregon. Over two decades later, this cuvée has become a foundational element of many great wine lists and personal cellars. The fruit is harvested entirely from our family's Dundee Hills estate, and the wine is vinified in the Drouhin family style with a focus on elegance, balance and finesse.

Nose: A fragrant nose of bright black cherries, berry bramble, orange peel, golden brown spices and a touch of sweet oak.

Palate: Flavors of red plum, boysenberry and cassis mingle with a savory trio of white pepper, forest floor and sassafras.

Finish: Elusive and elegant, this wine is wonderful now but I think will be in a perfect place with 5 - 12 years of cellaring.
