2018 vintage notes
Whoooooaaaa Dusky! THIS is what Dusky Goose is all about and we love it! Long our nickname for Dusky Goose's estate Rambouillet vineyard, Rambeaux (pronounced Rambo like the series of Stallone movies), combines two exquisite Dusky Goose estate vineyards into a Pinot that's so freaking good and an excellent value. Each single vineyard Pinot from these respective sites sells for $100/bottle.
A classic Dusky Goose profile that perfectly combines delicious black cherry and dried dark cherry—the flavors we've loved in Dusky Goose since the first vintage. It's full and juicy and just totally yummy. Exactly what we expect from Dusky Goose and knowing us, that's saying a lot!
Beginning in 2020, Dusky Goose Winery introduces its new Rambeaux line of wines made by famed Winemaker, Lynn Penner-Ash. Created from a blend of fruit from our Estate vineyards, Rambeaux Pinot Noir is the vivacious, lively younger sister of Dusky Goose. Rambeaux’s striking label features an illustrated sheep skull as a nod to the Rambouillet longhorn sheep raised by co-founder Linda Carter’s family for over 100 years in eastern Oregon. These sheep are also the namesake of our Rambouillet Estate vineyard in Dundee, Oregon.
Rambeaux, affectionately coined by Lynn Penner-Ash, originally comes from her shorthand when labeling barrels of wine from our Rambouillet vineyard. Rambeaux is comprised of wine made from our estate Lillie's and Fennwood vineyards located respectively in the Dundee Hills & Yamhill Carlton AVAs.
