2 bottles each of 2010, 2011, and 2012 Dusky Goose Dundee Hills Pinot noir available exclusively for our customers. All three vintages were tasted last week over the course of several days and they are drinking beautifully!
Original 2010 notes: The aromas sold us immediately: raspberry, plum, rose, a hint of truffle and oak-spice. Mouthwatering. Elegant and silky bodied, it dishes fresh and dried cherries with a spoonful of cream finishing gorgeous and long. It's all about balance; we expect this to age beautifully and drink well for the better part of two decades. One of the final releases from the 2010 vintage and one of the finest. 70% Rambouillet, 15% Ana and 15% Thistle Vineyards. - Marcus
Original 2011 notes: In a vintage where most Pinots tended to be about anything but the fruit, 2011 Dusky is all about the succulence of pure Pinot flavors. We love raspberry-driven Pinots, and there's a big juicy raspberry sitting in the driver's seat of the 2011 Dusky. So silky and supple, it glides gracefully across your palate, picking up the classic Dusky signature of dark, dried cherry through the finish. Superbly balanced, with a refreshing 13.1% alcohol.
Original 2012 notes: 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 the extra bottle aging.
