The best Van Duzer Pinot noir we’ve tasted in years! Credit new winemaker Drew Voit, a Willamette Valley veteran. Multispectrum in flavor, rolling from strawberry to bright cherry to darker red and blue fruit tones–and that’s just the fruit! Accents of graham cracker, rose, and black tea weave in and out on this juicy yet savory Pinot. Totally yummy. 100% Van Duzer Estate-grown.
Proprietors Carl and Marilynn Thoma were among the first to choose the foothills at the mouth of the Van Duzer Corridor to create their family estate in 1998, intrigued by the potential of the microclimate and its ability to produce evocative Pinot noir.Perched atop a knoll surrounded by vines on three sides, the site is situated in the gateway of the Corridor, a deep gap in the Oregon Coastal Range that draws brisk air from the Pacific Ocean into the Willamette Valley. The flagship estate’s 83.7planted acres are in the direct path of marine winds, and benefit from the cooling gusts that moderate the temperatures over the vineyard, guaranteeing a long, beneficial growing season year after year.
