Established in 1987, DD Oregon is owned by famed Burgundy producer, Maison Joseph Drouhin. Hand-crafted by fourth generation winemaker, Veronique Drouhin-Boss. Ruby with fruit and sweet floral scents, very French in style. On the palate cherry and blueberry with pepper and earthy notes. Young but integrated tannins, well defined, elegant with underlying richness, long finish.

Delicate, feminine but with an elegant core of bright cherry and stemmy notes. Fresh tannins. Could stand a few years.

For the price, this is my wine of the day - excellent. Presents true the varietal. Lovely texture, which finishes sweet.

Produced from southern facing vines, and it shows. Open-knit showing. Matured in neutral French oak. So much better than the 14 vintage.

Damp earth, red cherry, ripe strawberry and cranberry. A bit of allspice. M+ acid, m body, m- tannin. Silky long finish.

As a family, we agreed that this was underwhelming. Lots of cola on the nose and the palette, and little else. A simple and tart finish meant that it was promptly dispatched via the kitchen sink. Next...

Big fruit of cherry and plum, still youthful with a slight tart finish and mild spices. Very good bottle!

Sharing this with my brother on the 30th anniversary of Domaine Drouhin Oregon. Such a fantastic Pinot Noir! Very expressive with notes of cherry, spice, truffle and forest floor! Très magnifique !!!
