Basic Oregon Pinot Noir. Drinkable but not in any way worth seeking out. Overpriced. At least it is not over oaked or over extracted

Bruised strawberry, raspberry. Mushrooms, herbs, nice acidity. Light tar. Perfect with braised pork shank, polenta and portabella.

Nice wine, just a bit too light for me.

I’ve had far more complex and unique Wines from the Willamette. Don’t get me wrong this is still a solid wine, very typical, no flaws. Enjoyable, yet forgettable.

Tried the 2014 and agree with earlier comments. Nice nose of cherry and raspberry. First sips are spicy but light, almost merlot. As it warms the nose remains nice, spice fades but still abit thin. Not the meaty Pinot I expected from Dundee. Paid $23 so a few dollars above what I would value at.

Pleasant. Needs another year or two

What an Oregon Pinot should be. Fruit forward and enough structure and complexity to satisfy.

For a top vintage, disappointingly light and disjointed.
