Dusky Goose has always had the highest standards. The founders knew which winemaker, which vineyard manager, which vineyard they wanted and if any of those pieces didn't fit the puzzle, there would be no Dusky.
Another of their standards is as rare the Dusky Goose itself:to release wines only when they are ready.It is a luxury very few Oregon wineries enjoy and one which our loyal Dusky followers have always relished.
Today, a full two years since the last release, the 2013 Dusky Goose Dundee Hills takes flight. It is quintessential Dusky Goose and thanks to their unflinching standards, it is ready for your glass.

A continuation of the style that has made Dusky Goose a customer favorite: a robust yet undeniably elegant expression of Oregon Pinot noir. Deep, sweet, and spicy on the nose, moving into typical Dusky dark dried cherries, bottom notes of summer black berries, pinches of dried thyme, and accents of welcoming barrel spice. Silken and seamless in the way it sashays, dancing through a surprisingly long and packed finish. This reminds us of the 2010 Dusky Goose (one of our two favorite vintages!), with a touch more power and fruit.
If you've depleted your stash of 2012 Dusky, now is the time to replenish it. The release of the 2013 signals the pending departure of the '12...

The aromas command your attention, signaling near-arrival of deliciousness. Red fruits, cinnamon, and lavender waft from the glass. The silky smooth flavors of dark cherries glide effortlessly, dancing with sarsaparilla accents. A wonderful Pinot-fruit purity sails on the deep finish. As is typical, this is drinking beautifully already, with a seamlessness from extra bottle aging.
