Winemaker Notes
Each swirl releases a new flavor: vanilla and baking spice are accented by sweet red cherries and plum preserves. The palate hosts savory flavor qualities that include hints of rhubarb, Sandalwood and Rooibos tea.

Production Notes
The 2014 growing season was just about as good as it gets. Some are saying it could be the best season in more than a decade, which we agree with! The summer’s consistently hot days were followed by warm nights and just the right amount of sprinkling rain. The higher than average overnight lows allowed grapes to mature faster without putting stress on the vines, which lets the grapes come together in balance and flavor to produce an excellent wine. Yields are higher than normal and quality of fruit is very high. All fruit was hand harvested from September 13th to October 5th, 2014.
Vineyard Notes
The Dundee Hills Reserve Pinot Noir is the result of ongoing observation in the vineyard to select the best fruit from specific rows and blocks. The Foley Family Estate Vineyard which produces this wine boasts the jory soils well known for their iron-rich, fertile characteristics.
