This is the first vintage of this wine. Shows intensity and balanced and beautiful fruit. Medium-to full-bodied, silky and beautiful. A really velvety and round texture to this. Drink or hold.
Deep red. Pungent aromas of cherry cola, blackberry and woodsmoke are lifted by lively floral and peppery spice qualities. Densely packed but lively on the palate, offering juicy dark berry and bitter cherry flavors and smooth, velvety texture. Opens up slowly with air, showing very good clarity and thrust on the long, spice-tinged, gently tannic finish. This 279-acre vineyard is a new project for Domaine Drouhin Oregon and these are the inaugural releases. A Chardonnay is also being made and the wines are reflective of the DDO style, with solid backbones and the requisite structure for aging. Unsurprisingly, they show their Burgundian roots, with complex aromatic character that leans toward the savory without coming off too wild. (JR)
A new effort from DDO, this drops Domaine Drouhin from the name, and puts the vineyard name front and center. It’s young and well-crafted, with strawberry and cherry fruit. The potential is evident for an impressive site once the vines get some age under them.
