Intensely aromatic in its purple flower and orange oil perfume, it manages to hold you captive with that pretty side while delivering a deep base of electric dark fruits and back-end structure. After several days it continues walking the tightrope of pretty and powerful and should provide fascinating drinking over the next decade. Sadly, the last Dubay Vineyard bottling for the foreseeable future and you should grab it accordingly. - Marcus
2015 vintage notes
The debut of Dubay is flat-out awesome! If forced to choose, I’d say it’s my favorite of the 2015 single vineyards. Bursting with energy and dark berry wildness, wrapped in a sophisticated shell. Beautifully layered, adding hints of blood orange -- my favorite winter citrus that’s the prefect balance of sweet and bitter -- this is surprisingly showy already yet will have a solid decade or more of longevity. As Ken and Erica said, this wine is NUTTY good! Only 125 cases made.
Dubay Vineyard is a crazy, steep, rocky site in the Eola-Amity Hills, farmed by master viticulturist Ryan Hannaford (you may recognize his name from Lingua Franca’s Ryan Plow).
