2012 Pinot Noir Dundee Hills
Price: $39.00
Cellar Door Club Price: $33.15

2012 Vintage

Bud break was the 21st of April; spring was cool and wet, but bloom occurred June 23rd, and summer gradually warmed towards more normal levels than the two previous years. A rainy spell during bloom resulted in a light fruit set so we could achieve our yield targets without any crop thinning. This and the dry warm summer meant very low disease pressure and exceptionally clean and ripe fruit at the end of the season. The north Willamette Valley experienced over 100 days without rain at the end of the summer and September was the warmest of record. We began harvesting October 7th and finished on October 18th.

Price: $39.00

Aromatic and perfumed with scents of rose-petal, vanilla, and red cherry. Cinnamon and graham give the wine a richness and a hint of sweetness. Tannins are delicate and well integrated, coating your lips and the tip of your tongue.

"
Sleek and focused, with fine tannins around a spicy core of red berry, white pepper and violet flavors, gliding easily into a long and expressive finish. Drink now through 2024. 143 cases made." 92 points. Harvey Steiman, Wine Spectator, December 2016

“This flagship blend is sourced from 25-year-old vines. It’s sharply focused and bright, the strawberry and cherry flavors front and center. The flavors have a hard candy quality, with pleasant hints of toast and caramel through the close.” 90 Points. Paul Gregutt Wine Enthusiast, December 2016

"
The wine was aged 16 months in oak barrels. · Light cherry red color in the glass. Aromas of cherry, cranberry, strawberry and green herbs lead to a light to mid weight styled wine with flavors that echo the aromas. There is more power than the color would suggest, and the polished texture makes for easy drinking. Very forward, with deft oak management, and well-proportioned tannins. Quite typical of the Dundee Hills in character." Score: 90

"
Whether it is white or red, the Gladhart family continues to take it from grape to glass in the Dundee Hills in beautiful fashion. Their young Single Block Series from the remarkable 2014 vintage features four two-barrel lots of stunning juice, and Block 1 showcases Pommard on its own roots — a brave endeavor, indeed – that stems from their first 1990 planting. Its easterly aspect makes it the final block to be harvested. Lightly oaked, it offers blueberry and cola aromas that lead to sweet cherry and cranberry-rhubarb flavors backed by juicy red currant and a long finish of watermelon Jolly Rancher." Oustanding, Great Northwest Wine, March 2017.

"The aromatics suggest rose petals, while the tart fruit flavors run to raspberries and citrus. The freshness and complexity hint at further improvement over the next three to five years.” 90 Points. Paul Gregutt, Wine Enthusiast, December 2016

Block 1 is from Pommard selection of our original plantings in 1990.

“Vinified with 50% whole clusters, this pure Pommard selection is from the highest portion of the vineyard. This seems to bring slightly more definition to the wine, which puts a tangy undercoating around the bright berry flavors. There’s a pleasant lick of chocolate running through the tail.” 91 points.

“The nose is lightly perfumed with notes of rose-petal. Blue fruits dominate the palate, with full mouth watering acidity. The tannins are elegant and restrained, with a hint of Earl Grey tea. The notes of cedar and a slight saltiness on the finish suggest a perfect pairing with salmon grilled on a cedar plank. Season with rosemary and enjoy. The tannins and acidic structure of this wine mean that it will age extremely well in your cellar. Drink a bottle a year for the next 12 years. You won’t regret it.” Double Gold-Great Northwest Wine Competition
