Winemaker's Notes:

On the nose, there is an immediate burst of bright, fresh red fruits, including strawberry and raspberry, followed by an earthy quality. On the palate, the wine has fine texture, soft tannins, good acidity and a strong core of fruit. It is a wine that offers immediate pleasure, on its own, or better yet, in the company of a delicious meal. All in all, the 2007 is classic Pinot Noir.

Coudline is vinified under the careful eye of consulting winemaker VĂ©ronique Drouhin-Boss of Domaine Drouhin winery.

About Cloudline:

Cloudline Cellars represents a first for Dreyfus, Ashby--our own wine. Given our love for Pinot Noir and our long history developing Domaine Drouhin Oregon and other fine wines, it's probably not surprising that we would choose Oregon's Willamette Valley as the home for this exciting project.

Our goal is very specific: to create teh best, most delicious and consistent value in Oregon Pinot Noir today. We are fortunate to have access to top sources, growers and vintners who understand and support what we're trying to accomplish. We have also enlisted the expertise of Veronique Drhouin-Boss, who has graciously agreed to be our consulting winemaker, or more appropriately, our "reference palate." In practical terms, she makes sure the quality never wavers.

Sourced from some of the finest vineyards in Oregon.
