Palate Profile

The 2021 Pinot Noir Dundee Hills is youthful and bright, deftly downplaying the topsy-turvy growing season that ended with gentle, ideal harvest conditions. On the nose, the wine is bursting with black cherry and ripe sour cherry tones, with hints of dried violets and lightly roasted coffee beans. The palate confirms the nose with added notes of fresh raspberry, cranberry, and a decidedly earthy touch. This wine is lovely, vibrant, and elegant now, but it will be in a perfect place with 5 – 12 years of cellaring.

The classic Pinot Noir was the first wine produced by the Drouhin family in Oregon. The grapes are harvested only on the estate's plots in the Dundee Hills, Willamette Valley, and are vinified in the style of Maison Joseph Drouhin with an emphasis on elegance, balance and finesse.

Critic Awards

Moving to the Domaine Drouhin Oregon lineup from the Dundee Hills, the 2021 Pinot Noir Dundee Hills is ripe with ripe black cherry, fresh licorice, and dark stone. Lush and inviting, with ripe structure and broad shoulders, it is flush with a ripe, meaty texture and warming spice. Allow it another couple of years in the cellar. This is an age-worthy wine to drink 2025-2037.

Fragrant and open pinot with aromas of cherries, wild strawberries, orange zest, nutmeg and white pepper. It’s medium-bodied with silky, creamy tannins. Delicious balance of just-ripe berry fruit and subtle spice. Very long, too. Drink or hold.

Graceful and fragrant, with delicately layered cherry and raspberry flavors laced with rose petal, dusky spices and a hint of fresh forest floor. Ends with refined tannins.

Ripe black cherries mix with aromas of sugar cookies and beeswax to create a perfume worthy of dabbing on pulse points. Blackcap raspberries dominate the palate, joined by unsweetened dark chocolate and espresso shots. The wine’s elevated acidity and velvety tannins join a creamy texture in a most delightful way.

Aromatic and ripe, dark fruit combined with notes of dried herbs and a touch of spice. Embellished oak lends richness, but the palate is fresh, refined and savoury. Opulent and well-executed in style.
