93 points – Cellar Selection – Wine Enthusiast
This wine is the inaugural release of our Duck Pond Estate ‘Back Yard’ Pinot Noir from the Dundee Hills – a best barrel selection from our 14-acre estate at the winery, split nearly equally amongst 3 of the 4 clones grown there – Pommard, 777 and Mariafeld (23). We used 30% whole cluster in the ferments, with the resulting wine being handled and moved by gravity then bottled unfiltered, unfined. This blend showcases the beauty of what the Dundee Hills AVA provides, silky luxury with multiple layers and richness. The wine itself has a nose of cherry pie, cinnamon, oolong tea and rose petals, complimented by a palate of lush Bing cherry, and a long, silky finish. This wine can be enjoyed over the next decade
