Dundee Hills AVA
100% De Ponte Vineyard, Dundee Hills AVA
40% new French oak, 8 months
2014 De Ponte Vineyard Pinot Noir
Pinot Noir and Copper River Salmon
"This rich and complex Pinot Noir is another example of the variety grown on volcanic soils, specifically the red Jory soils of the Dundee Hills. The wine offers aromas and flavors of red and black fruits with toasty and spicy nuances from aging on 40% new French oak. Medium body and earthy minerality pair well with salmon from the grill."
Aromas of pretty black and red fruit and delicate rose petal are just a glimpse into the sensory wonderland of the 2014 De Ponte Pinot Noir. Sweet deep dark red fruit is the core of this beauty with minerality and a palate weight that are a little more substantial than Jory soil tends to express, but still sensual and elegant.
