2015 Meyer Vineyard
Pinot Noir - 92 pts
The Meyer Vineyard is a long, steep site in the Dundee Hills that faces due south and features a variety of elevations, exposures, and microclimates. The 2015 Meyer is composed of fruit picked at the very beginning of harvest to produce fresh, aromatic wine that combines red cherry and plum with woodsmoke, tarragon, potpourri, and crème brulee. The palate is fresh and lithe, with dark spice carried by loads of red fruit to a long, delicately balanced finish. This is a young wine that will gain in weight over the next year and age gracefully for 10+ years.
90 pts – Pale to medium ruby-purple colored, the 2015 Pinot Noir Meyer Vineyard has aromas of raspberry preserves, spice box and incense with a hint of potpourri. Full-bodied, rich and generously fruited in the mouth, it has plush, velvety tannins and excellent persistence. - Wine Advocate
92pts – Brilliant red. Fresh red berries, pungent flowers and Asian spices on the highly perfumed nose. Lively, spice-accented bitter cherry and raspberry flavors pick up a sweeter vanilla nuance as the wine stretches out. The floral note returns on the very long, silky finish, which features smooth tannins and a smoky mineral quality. - Vinous (Josh Raynolds)
