User Reviews for Winter's Hill Vineyard Dundee Hills Pinot Noir

Winemaker's Notes:

The Pinot noir grapes used in this wine are hand-picked early in the morning while the fruit is still cool. After destemming, the fruit is fermented in small, 1.5 ton open fermenters. By using small, open tanks, Delphine is able to monitor each batch closely, and make small adjustments as needed to realize the potential of each wine. After fermentation is complete, the must is pressed and the wine transferred to barrel for 18 months of aging. The 2008 Pinot Noir is one of the first of our wines to be offered both in a traditional bottle and in a refillable stainless steel keg. The keg is sealed with Nitrogen gas, preserving the fresh aromas and flavors. For the restaurants that serve our wine, this means that every glass is perfectly preserved, just as the winemaker created it. For the environment, each keg means the elimination of 27 bottles, corks, capsules, and labels that never needed to be created or transported from the factory to winery to final consumer. We are excited to be making a genuine reduction in our environmental impact, without any compromise to the quality of our wines.

Tasting Notes:

"Vivid ruby. Ripe expansive aromas of dark cherries, cherry-cola and violet, lifted by a spicy overtone. Smokey, oak-spiced red and dark berry flavors show impressive depth and pick up sweetness with air. At once rich and energetic, finishing with excellent backend cut and persistent spiciness. This is really suave and drinking well for a 2008, but it will age too." -Josh Raynolds, Steven Tanzers International Wine Cellar.
