Winemaker's Notes

The 2006 Pinot Noir Willamette Valley is very easy to love. It is pretty and charming and graceful, like the 2004, but with a slightly more masculine character. On the nose, the wine is full of bright cherry and intense small red berry notes, with a hint of spice. The mouth feel is lush and round, and very balanced, as is the elegant, long finish. It is a wine to enjoy now, or any time over the next 6-12 years.

Critical Acclaim

"Fine-boned and elegant, this plum-scented pinot is supported by sumptuous oak and a dusting of fine-grained earth. The ripe cherry flavor concentration feels as generous as it is poised, the finish graceful and lifted."
93 Points

"Elegance is the keyword for all the wines of DDO, with the added bonus of structure that almost begs for cellaring. This lovely Pinot Noir effortlessly captures the essence of the grape without any heavy-handed oak, alcohol or over-ripeness. Truly Burgundian, a moderate 14% alcohol, it offers seamless integration of berry and plum fruit, natural acids and lightly applied oak accents of sandalwood and toasted cracker."
