Tasting Notes

From Patricia Green: "Balcombe Vineyard is simply one of the best vineyards we work with and every year it produces wines of terrific quality that are absolutely true to the Dundee Hills. For those of you who don't know this site is located toward the top of the Dundee Hills on Breyman Orchard Rd. It was planted in 1990 to Pommard and we have worked with the fruit every year since 1997 so we have become pretty accustom to how the grapes grow, ripen and ferment into wine. All of these aspects are very important pieces of making high quality Pinot Noir. The wines from Balcombe Vineyard in 2006 (including the Block 1B bottling, the Notorious and the yet to be released Portrait Pinot Noir) are all incredibly intense, lush, sexy wines that have piles of fruit, good structure and, amazingly, almost perfect balance. The best news about this wine (other than that it is very tasty) is that for the first time since 2002 we harvested more than 1.1 tons/acre. In fact we got nearly 2 tons/acre off the site which simply means that there is a reasonable quantity of this bottling for the first time in 4 vintages. The Balcombe Vineyard bottling is a silky, true-blue Dundee Hill Pinot Noir. The 2006 vintage layers it with a touch more black fruit and tannin than we might expect but serves to offer a whole extra dimension to this wine." (2006 Vintage Newsletter)
