Winemaker's Notes:

This wine epitomizes everything Sokol Blosser has stood for since we planted Sokol Blosser's first vines in 1971. The Dundee Hills Pinot Noir is born each year in the heart of Oregon's Pinot Noir country. A majority of the grapes are organically estate grown and are primarily from our new Dijon clones and their favorite clone, Pommard. Each bottle is tightly structured for long-term aging, yet the tannins are soft and smooth. In addition to the raspberry/cherry/earth/truffle notes, a dusty cola/mocha component is noticed because of the French oak. Properly cellared this wine should last 10-15 years.

About Sokol Blosser:

When Bill Blosser and Susan Sokol Blosser planted their first vines in 1971, they needed all of their youthful self-confidence, energy and determination to make their way because there was no wine industry in Oregon. Today, with over 400 wineries and more than 19,000 acres of vineyards, Oregon wines are available throughout the world. Sokol Blosser has survived, grown and prospered as a family-owned and run operation, and they are proud to have been part of developing and shaping Oregon's now prominent wine industry.

Sokol Blosser strives to create wines of world class quality that are produced sustainably, mindful of the environment and your health, and that express the distinctive flavors of their hillside vineyards. Sokol Blosser wines reflect who they are – their values and their sense of place. We hope you enjoy them.
