The gateway to White Walnut's brilliant Pinot noirs and for my tastes, a step up from last year's release (2021, a tough act to follow). Brimming with Dundee Hill red fruits bolstered by a blue fruit layer bottom note, what begins as an elegant initial impression quickly shows a voluminous expansion. This finish sails with spiced complexity, raspberry sauce, and lavender. A dynamic teeter totter of silky, sultry energy.
This is where Chris Mazepink's dogmatic dedication to the Dundee Hills begin and we know you'll love it.
The 2022 'Dundee Hills Pinot Noir’ is a regional blend showcasing the very best of the Dundee Hills AVA. Highly detailed aromas of wilted violets, Swiss chocolate and raspberry paste ascend from the glass coalescing with notes of red rose petals and dried baking spices. I’m struck by the complexity of this wine, at such a young age, as layer upon layer of blueberries, minerals and lavender cascade across the palate. This wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered showing our commitment to minimal intervention winemaking.
2021 vintage notes
93 points Wine Spectator: "Handsome and refined, with notes of fresh violet, black raspberry and black tea that take on structure and density toward medium-grained tannins. Drink now through 2030."
