Each year, the Dundee Hills Winegrowers’ Association offers a limited edition collection of 24 bottles of Pinot Noir, hand-selected by 24 acclaimed Dundee Hills wineries, each showcasing the distinctive quality of each winery within a single vintage.

This year we are proud to present the 2018 Dundee Hills Vintage Collection – a beautiful and a unique gift for any collector, enthusiast, or oenophile.

The wines from the 2018 vintage are ripe and layered with enough acid to retain tension on the palate and allow the wines to age gracefully for years to come. These are exceptional wines now and will only reward with more complexity if laid down to age in the cellar.

Alexana Estate Vineyard & Winery

2018 Revana Vineyard Estate Pinot Noir

Offering dynamic raspberry and blueberry flavors that gather notes of spiced cinnamon and orange oil, building toward medium-grained tannins.

Anderson Family Vineyard

2018 Dundee Hills Estate Pinot noir

Bold, complex, layered and long. A dark, boysenberry driven wine with aromatics of marine air and petrichor. A bigger Pinot from our steep, rock slide site.

Archery Summit Winery

2018 Arcus Vineyard Pinot Noir

With strawberry rhubarb driving the nose and a palate made of raspberry and currant, the 2018 Arcus Pinot Noir is tied tightly to the red end of the fruit spectrum. This wine explores every corner of our cellar, having been fermented in stainless steel, concrete, and wood. As a result, the Pinot Noir is dynamic, with a ceaseless and infectious energy that can be felt with every taste. A persistent finish reminds of the intriguing depth of the 2018 growing season.

Argyle Winery

2018 Spirithouse Pinot Noir

Entirely from Knudsen Vineyard, Spirithouse Pinot Noir displays the delicacy and refinement of the Dundee Hills, while exhibiting the depth and texture of the 2018 vintage. Red cherry, black tea, and savory spice open into delicate floral complexity. The silky tannins and generous weight are balanced with crisp, high elevation acidity, providing tension to the long finish. After fermentation and free run draining, the wine was allowed to age elegantly on its lees for 16 months in French oak, of which 30% were new.

Arterberry Maresh

2018 Maresh Vineyard Pinot Noir

The 2018 Pinot Noir Maresh Vineyard is an incredible wine. It opens slowly to an arresting perfume of dusty earth, dried rose petals, tea leaves, licorice and amaro with a wealth of bright red berry fruit at the core. The palate is elegant, supple and juicy, with an expansive fan of layered, spicy flavors and a very long finish. It’s hard to resist now, but it will have more to offer with time in bottle.

Bella Vida Vineyard

2018 Bella Vida O’Donnell Pinot Noir

Lush silky texture contributes finesse in this complex Pinot Noir. Ripe, deep, black cherry fruit flavors with notes of spice and rose are deftly balanced with toasty oak offering a long, lingering finish. The 2018 vintage provides both an early approachability matched with great cellaring potential. Drink now through 2028. 168 cases produced.

Cramoisi Vineyard

2018 Sofia’s Block Estate Pinot Noir

100% Dijon 667, Sofia’s favorite clone from her namesake block. This is an opulent wine with beautiful bright and elegant crimson color. Notes of dried cherries, plums, spices, combined with a velvety body that is soft in the palate. Interesting minerality, aromas of wet soil round out a fine lingering savory finish. Sofia’s will age wisely for years to come. Cases produced: 175

Dobbes Family Estate

2018 Dundee Hills Cuvée Pinot Noir

This wine is a perfect snapshot of the classic characteristics of the Dundee Hills: red fruits, spice, and earth. Multi-layered cherry aromas from pie to preserves dominate against a gentle backdrop of blueberry, raspberry, subtle oak spice and vanilla. The palate carries the red fruit theme with a tart expression of currant and cranberry, accented with cola and plum. A vibrant mouthfeel from youthful tannins and mouthwatering acid carries the medium long finish.

Domaine Drouhin Oregon

2018 Domaine Drouhin Oregon Pinot Noir Laurène

In many ways, the 2018 Laurène embodies what we love most about wines from the Dundee Hills. Offering beautiful clarity and a garnet color on approach, the aromatics brim with notes of dried red cherry, spice, wild herbs, earth, and subtle oak. Characteristically elegant, the wine evolves on the palate, moving seamlessly from its pomegranate welcome into its detailed lines of clove, white pepper, and cranberry. As always, cellaring the Laurène over the next 5-15 years will be well rewarded.

Domaine Roy

2018 Domaine Roy & Fils, Incline Pinot Noir Pinot Noir

The Dundee Hills Incline from our Iron Filbert Vineyard has flamboyant aromas of nectarine, raspberry, hibiscus and rose. On the palate, it shows a deep intense flavor profile, rounded by silky tannins. Although this wine has lots of flavor concentration, it maintains a remarkable balance. We anticipate it will drink well for 10+ years.

Domaine Serene Winery

2018 ‘Evenstad Reserve’ Pinot Noir

A brilliant ruby red color, the 2018 ‘Evenstad Reserve’ Pinot Noir expresses aromas of dried cherry, dark chocolate and saddle leather on the nose. On the palate, ripples of composed tannins and savory characters of cherry tobacco, ground cloves and allspice reveal themselves, leading to a finish of great concentration and acidity. This Pinot Noir is beautiful on release and will age gracefully in the cellar for years to come.

Durant Vineyards

2018 Olivia Grace Pinot Noir

The entrance of the 2018 Olivia Grace Pinot Noir is focused on ripe red fruit notes of raspberry and fresh cut strawberries, along with cinnamon, anise, and cracked pepper spices. The mid-palate turns its attention to earth and barrel components while filling all corners with integrated, silky tannins. A zesty, playful acidity keeps all the complex layers bright and fresh while exhibiting a thought provoking and lingering finish.

Élevée Winegrowers

2018 Élevée Vineyard Pinot Noir

This wine reveals a captivating perfume of raspberries, cherries, keemun black tea & powdered lilacs, with hints of baking spices & cola, around a mineral core. This is a medium to full body wine, with lively acidity & broad, fine, silky texture. The long finish lingers with a chorus of raspberries, fading violet petals, & Dundee dust.

Erath Winery

2018 Knight’s Gambit Pinot Noir

Alluringly dark and dense with aromas of black plum, grilled meat, Mission fig and baking spice offer a seductive prelude. Flavors include dark plum, cherry, black-cap raspberry and English tea. Tannin is lithe and present contributing texture and balancing perfectly with subtle acidity.

Furioso Vineyards

2018 La Linea Furioso Pinot Noir

For the 2018 vintage of La Linea we used an equal amount of Pommard and Dijon 115 clones. That year, La Linea, usually more “feminine” in style than L’Altra, showed us more its “tomboy” side, exhibiting aromas of violet and black cherry with hints of coffee bean and cigar box. The wine has plenty of refreshing acid with generous tannins, which will tame with time in the bottle, and lead to a
salivating finish.

Holloran Vineyards

2018 Holloran Pinot Noir Le Pavillon
Vineyard

Tasting notes.

Knudsen Vineyards

2018 Dundee Hills Pinot Noir

Deep ruby red hues with rich underlying spice and dark fruit aromatics. Youthful and bold with a textural pallet showing gripping tannins, firm acidity and mouth coating structure. Hints of tangerine peel and chocolate ganache are present while flavors of cola and ginger spice continue to open up as the wine aerates. This is a beautiful contrast from recent vintages, with a savory umami sensation that teases your tastebuds and suggests the potential for long cellaring time. Decant this wine at least 1 hour prior to drinking if you open early. This wine will easily age for 9-11 years in a properly controlled cellar.

Lange Winery

2018 Lange Estate Pinot Noir

AROMAS – blueberry, blackberry, savory herbs, violets, spice cake, FLAVORS – plum, black cherry, cocoa powder
BODY – plush, supple tannins, with a long, seamless finish, FINISH – mineral tones, baking spice, dried orange peel

Native Flora

2018 Jaguar Reserve Pinot Noir

Jaguar represents the pinnacle of the Native Flora Pinot production. A clonal selection of 8 barrels, anchored by 828 and Wadenswil, this pinot shows great depth, power and structure. Rose floral aromatics interlaced with dark cherry, lavender and anise delight the nose, while layers of cherry pie, cola and sandalwood fill the mouth.

Résonance

2018 Découverte Vineyard Pinot Noir

A nice and brilliant color for this wine, with an expressive nose of cherry, blackberries, wild mint, fresh licorice and noble wood. Vibrant and energetic, the palate reveals a subtle balance and elegant floral notes. The finale is mineral driven, expressing the complexity of the Jory soil.

Sokol Blosser Winery

2018 Old Vineyard Block Pinot Noir

This 2018 Old Vineyard Block Pinot Noir exhibits scents of red fruit with hints of leather and allspice. The palate has rich pomegranate, red cherry and more leather.

Stoller Family Estate

2018 Stoller Family Estate Reserve Pinot Noir

Our Reserve Pinot Noir is a compilation of established sections of our vineyard. These sections were carefully chosen over time because they reflect the maturity of our site. Native yeast fermented in stainless steel tanks and our oak fermenter, it spent 12-months in French oak barrels where it saw full malolactic conversion prior to bottling. Our 2018 Reserve Pinot Noir opens with aromatics of ripe plum, dried bing cherries, baking spice, and earth. The palate is supple, carrying flavors of cola and bing cherry, with hints of cedar and flint. This wine can be enjoyed now; however, it was constructed for longevity with proper cellaring.

White Rose Estate

2018 Winemaker’s Cuvée

The White Rose 2018 Winemaker’s Cuvée is 100% whole cluster fermented and basket pressed in White Rose’s traditional style.  Our goal every year with this blend is to create an object of beauty, a definitive statement of art relating to each unique vintage.  In 2018, the blend was entirely sourced from vineyards in the Dundee Hills. 

Winter's Hill Estate

2018 Winters Hill Pinot Noir Block 8

This wine from the Wadensvil clone of Pinot noir has more delicate tannins than some other blocks of the Winters Hill vineyard. The nose highlights the sweet red cherry, savory herbs, and a hint of black tea. The palate is juicy and luscious with a medium body highlighted by savory herbs, black cherry, and a hint of vanilla with soft fine tannins for a smooth finish.
