Van Duzer Pinot Noir Homestead Block United States 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

For several years, weve been beguiled by the powerful fruit coming off this small vineyard which, as its name suggests, was the site of the homestead on the property. The plot was planted in 1982 to vines of the Burgundian Pommard clone which have responded to conditions on the south-facing elevated benchland site with remarkably concentrated flavors of dark cherry.First bottled under its own name in 2000, Homestead Block is distinguished for its depth and purity of fruit character. Rose, hibiscus and violet rise from the glass to mingle wiht black cherry and cedar. Classi Pinot Noir meatiness complements flavors of dark cherry, sweet oak and baking spices. A deep, long lasting finish.

Van Duzer Vineyards is the first in the Willamette Valley to benefit from the cool Pacific breezes that flow nightly through the Van Duzer Corridor to the interior of the valley. The Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris planted on the vineyards in the foothills of the Van Duzer Corridor flourish in the cool-weather growing conditions where they develop a purity of fruit flavor, complexity and pleasing balance. Located on a scenic hilltop amidst 82 acres of vines, the family estate winery practices sustainable farming and has been endorsed by internationally recognized LIVE (Low Impact Viticulture and Enology) and Salmon Safe. Pinot Noir is Van Duzer’s signature wine. A variety of Pinot Noir clonal varieties and microclimates allows Van Duzer Vineyards to produce a multi-dimensional estate Pinot Noir and a handful of limited-production Block Designates of singular personality. Pinot Gris is Oregon’s other wine of note, a white wine that Van Duzer Vineyards makes in a crisp, dry style particularly well suited to a white wine. Van Duzer Vineyard’s new eco-friendly winery is one of the most modern winemaking facilities in Oregon. Tasting room and picnic grounds welcome visitors to the site, located just one hour south of Portland on the Hwy 99W Wine Road. Read less
