Wine Notes

This is the pinnacle of Dusky Goose Pinot Noir from our Rambouillet Estate Vineyard, the hallmark expression of excellence from the Pommard Clone Pinot Noir from the Dundee Hills.

Cellar Notes

We cellar Rambouillet Estate Vineyard Pinot Noir for extra time in bottle before release.  Library releases will continue to mature and improve in bottle for an additional 10-15 years or more.

Vintage Notes

This was the “Goldilocks year” where everything was “just right”! Ideal conditions produced generous wines not over the top. The grapes were exceptionally balanced in sugars, acid, flavor and tannins at harvest.   Overall an outstanding vintage yielding balanced wines with delicious fruit forward character, excellent texture and firm seamless structure.
