Stoller Pinot Noir 2020, Dundee Hills, OR$31.00
Bill Stoller was born on the property and raised on the family farm outside of Dayton, Oregon. Bill’s decision to transform the family farm into a vineyard stemmed from much more than wishful thinking. With the help of Burgundian winemaker Patrice Rion and local vineyard consultants, Bill confirmed that the very factors that made this land a poor choice for turkey farming were perfect for an award-winning vineyard. In 1995, Bill planted 10 acres each of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, combining the experience of consulting viticulturists with innovative vineyard techniques in order to maximize the grape’s quality. Crafted exclusively from estate fruit, the Stoller Dundee Hills Pinot Noir 2020 is made in an elegant, approachable style. Driven with aromatics, the nose is bright, showing perfumed red fruits with undertones of earth and baking spice. The palate is soft and supple, with dark cherry flavors balanced by a delicate tension from the tannins — a classic representation of the Dundee Hills. It has aromas of brambleberry and cherry with floral notes of lilac and violets and understated hints of cola and cinnamon. The palate features a purity of red fruit flavors, bright acidity and medium tannins. This approachable wine pairs well with a variety of foods, including cedar plank grilled salmon with tarragon aioli, pulled pork with cherry chutney and pickled onions, creamed morel mushrooms with shallots and hard cheeses, especially Comté. 92 Points – James Suckling
