    "Seamless and seductive, with expressive rose petal, black rasp- berry and orange zest accents that build elegance and complexity on a lingering finish. Drink now." ~ Wine Spectator

    From one of the epicenters of Pinot Noir excellence, we've managed to grab some Purple Hands Latchkey Vineyard Dundee Hills Pinot Noir.  Think cranberry-glazed pork roast, grilled salmon with a dijon-brown sugar crust, or roast chicken basted with honey and sage, served with a pomegranate jam. Lucky you to have the dilemma of which pairing to choose...

    Wine Spectator: "Seamless and seductive, with expressive rose petal, black rasp- berry and orange zest accents that build elegance and complexity on a lingering finish. Drink now through 2023." Jul 2018

    Winery:  "Creamy Cherry, Spicy White Chocolate, Candied Cherry, Dusty Raspberry, Savory Game, Baked Pie Crust.

    The 2016 vintage had a warm spring with record-breaking heat units in April and May. This transitioned us into the earliest harvest date on record. Lower elevation Dundee Hills started to pick the end of the second week of August, and our last fruit was in the door September 16th. The summer wasn’t overly warm, though just warm enough to keep the vines moving forward, developing into a beautiful growing season and harvest. I think you will see the wines balanced and rich in a traditional Purple Hands Style."
