Dark red. Suave, finely etched bouquet of wild strawberry, fresh raspberry, rose and pungent magnolia, with hints of cocoa powder, cola and orange zest. A silky, poised midweight with deep, youthful, mineral-tinged raspberry and cherry-cola flavors that grow sweeter with aeration. Finishes supple, vibrant and long, picking up notes of cinnamon and candied rose. A beautifully understated Pinot that could be from a swanky Vosne vineyard. (JR)
Smooth and round, with a pretty sandalwood note mingling with ripe cherry, toast and spicy oak flavors, deftly balanced to let it all sing while the finish rolls on and on.
This is a distinct step up in both elegance and overall aromatic finesse with impressively pure red pinot fruit nuanced by hints of violets and plum that continue onto the rich, full, sweet and very stylish flavors underpinned by more sophisticated yet slightly firmer tannins, all wrapped in a sappy and dusty finish that delivers admirable length. This is a seriously lovely wine that will remind Drouhin fans, stylistically speaking, of several of their better Côte de Beaune offerings. Domaine Drouhin was hardly the first Oregon winery (the land was purchased in 1987 and the winery built in 1989) but it was the real ground breaker in terms of bringing instant credibility to the region's existing wineries as well as those who have followed. DDO, as it's known, tries to emulate the elegant and pure style of the Domaine Drouhin Burgundies while working with the different ripeness and fruit characteristics that Oregon produces.
