Domaine Drouhin "Arthur" Oregon 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

"2006 provided an abundance of wonderfully ripe & healthy fruit displayed by the complexity in the Arthur. After some time, the bouquet transitions to lemon verbena, cantaloupe & lychee. Wonderfully balanced, the Arthur is round & full on the palate leading into a clean, fresh, lingering finish. This incredible length suggests pairings of shellfish & ripe cheeses, or cellaring for 3-5 years."Winery Notes

Domaine Drouhin has been on the viticultural cutting edge in Oregon since our first plantings, and we continue to set the pace. The 90 acres of hillside vineyards that ribbon our 225-acre estate are at the very heart of Domaine Drouhin wines. Philippe Drouhin is in charge of all of the estate vineyards in Oregon & Burgundy & it is his vision & passion that drives our advances & improvements in winegrowing year after year. Situated atop the Dundee Hills, between 400 and 800 feet in elevation, our site was selected for its remarkable similarity in climate, latitude and aspect to the legendary vineyards of Burgundy. DDO places more emphasis on viticulture than most producers in America. Our vines are perhaps the most densely-planted in the New World, with an average of 3,300 plants to the acre. We are also one of the few vineyards in the country to cultivate our own rootstocks and propagate all of our own plant materials. This allows us to further our vineyards with site specific rootstocks and plants. Read less

Wine Spectator Crisp with an open feel to the meaty cherry and blood orange flavors that persist nicely through a veil of fine tannins and linger on the refined finish. Best from 2009 through 2014. Score: 90. Harvey Steiman December 15 2008.

Arthur's combination of freshness and natural acidity, it's roundness and texture. Balanced and complex, the 2006 features carnation and magnolia on the nose, with hints of toast and lemon zest.
