Stoller Vineyards Dundee Hills Pinot Noir 2014
The nose opens with notes of preserved dark cherry, smoky flint, sandalwood, ripe red roses and exotic spices followed by more subtle notes of young raspberries and hibiscus. There is a herbal/savory quality that tethers all of the aromatics that is reminiscent of rosemary and lemon verbena. The palate is succulent and long carrying flavors of Bing cherry, rose water, and vanilla with dark chocolate and sea salt finish.
Located in the heart of Oregon's Willamette Valley in the Dundee Hills AVA, Stoller uniquely offers world class wines and genuine hospitality in a stunning setting. Owners Bill and Cathy Stoller purchased the nearly 400 acre property, which was originally his family’s turkey farm, in 1993 and crafted the winery’s inaugural Pinot Noir in 2001. Their vision of innovation blending vineyard stewardship with environmental sustainability was recognized in 2006 when Stoller became the first LEED® certified winemaking facility in the United States attaining the rare Gold level certification. Today, the winery features panoramic views including Mt. Hood, ample outdoor space for relaxation and guest houses.
