This excellent vineyard brings a fuller, chunkier style to the 2017 lineup. The powerful fruit emphasizes black cherry flavors, wrapped in a veneer of barrel toast. The tannins are astringent and leave an impression of black tea. As with all of the winery's 2017s, this young wine will benefit from another year or two of bottle age before being opened.

Wine Making and Notes: The Madrone Block’s Dijon 115 planting creates a much different Pinot Noir than the Pommard Clone from the Bishop Block, and it is special enough to be bottled on its own. In the 2017 we utilized an 8 ton open top fermenter for all of the de-stemmed fruit from this block. This requires and intense regiment of pumping over while punching down to ensure both gentle and effective reincorporation of solids with the juice. Four of the seven barrels were chosen from this lot. The remaining two fermenters were 100% whole cluster fermentations to provide a level of structure and savory aspects into the densely fruited large de-stemmed fermentation. The remaining three barrels of the bottling were selected from these ferments. So, this still brings in the velvety texture that Dundee Hills Pinot Noirs can have although the more rigid tannin from the one barrel can be felt in the back of the wine, if only for a fleeting moment. This is definitely deep in fruit and oozing with textural appeal. This borders right on sultry as all bottlings of this block have since we began producing it in 2012. Almost certainly, this is the single vineyard designate with the most upfront appeal to it. This will show sweet red fruits which are certainly a staple of the vintage with classic Dundee Hill sweet spices. Hard not to like.
The original planting dates back a half century, and this wine comes from the oldest extant Pommard and Dijon 777 vines. It's lively with excellent grip and weight, showing spiced cranberry fruit accented with lightly candied orange peel. In short, a detailed wine that dives deep with tasty baking spices through the finish. Drink now and over the next decade.
