Winemaker's Notes

Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2007!

Erath produces Pinot Noir from six different sites in the Dundee Hills viticultural area. "Reserve" quality lots are chosen from the best wines from these sites and blended to make this Estate Selection cuvée. The iron-clad Jory soils predominate this growing area and give the wines their distinctive aroma and flavor profiles, and elegant, age-worthy structure. Fruit focused in their youth, Erath Estate Selection Pinots gain additional complexity and sophistication when cellared for three to eight years.

"Pie cherries with smoky and seductive herb garden aromas of sage and lavender. Cherry vanilla flavors with a hint of anise offer a sweet entry that leads to a satisfying even finish. Drink from 2007 through 2013."
- Gary Horner, Winemaker

Excellent with wild mushrooms, duck, roast beef, lamb or other red meats, chocolate, garlic and salmon.
