2013 R. Stuart & Co. Ana Vineyard Dundee Hills Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

12.9% alc., pH 3.79, TA 0.525, 43 cases, $50. · Light cherry red color in the glass. Demure aromas of cherry, strawberry and cranberry. Very delicate, bordering austere flavors of cherry and strawberry with soft tannins and a gentle riff of backing oak. There is no finishing fruit presence.This wine is well made, and displays the signature red fruit of the Dundee Hills, but doesn’t deliver enough fruit pleasure to excite. It may pick up weight and interest with more time in bottle. Score: 87. Reviewed December 12, 2015 WINERY » ARTICLE »

2008 Winderlea Vineyard & Winery Ana Vineyard Dundee Hills Oregon Pinot Noir

13.5% alc., $50. Own-rooted vines planted in 1976 on a 350’ to 450‘ ridge. Pommard and 777 clones. Owned and farmed by Andy Humphrey. · Moderately light reddish-purple color in the glass. Nicely perfumed mix of berries with a strong scent of oak. Tasty core of red strawberries and raspberries and chocolate-covered cherries with an underpinning of oak char that fans out on the palate. Still a bit rough hewed and tannic, but offers some charming fruit that has good persistence. Should improve in the cellar as the tannins meld and the oak integrates further. Very good.
