This is a brand that holds quality to the highest standard. This Pinot is crafted from carefully selected rows from their estate and Greywacke vineyards. This is silk personified…a Pinot Noir that is as vivid an expression of both region and vintage as one could imagine. Bright red fruit, and black fruit flavors. Broad shouldered with layered, savory elements. Complexity abounds in this wine with a finish that goes on and on!

A thick, rich opening of wild strawberry preserve and raspberry tea leads the way to a mid-palate of grippy texture and lifted acidity in this impressive wine. Savory seasonings of black tea, forest floor and cardamom echo and add to the wine's varietal complexity.
The 2018 Pinot Noir Wester Reach has a medium ruby color and a nose of cranberry sauce, blackberries, cinnamon stick, forest floor, black tea leaves and accents of potpourri. Made entirely with free-run juice, the medium-bodied palate bursts with juicy berry fruits, perfumed and fresh, finishing very long.
As with the Chardonnay, the 2018 Pinot Noir Wester Reach goes out to distribution only as opposed to being offered through the mailing list. As such, it's made in reasonable quantities, and there are 4,000 cases of the 2018. Lots of spice box, foresty, earthy notes, spring flowers, and a core of black raspberry fruit all give way to a more medium-bodied, elegant, silky wine that has no hard edges, ripe tannins, and the class to shine for 7-8 years. It's a beautiful wine as well as a terrific introduction into the wines of DuMOL.
