2014 Pinot Noir

The complex Knudsen Vineyards 2014 Pinot Noir benefits from blending a range of expressive estate grown fruit from Block 5, planted in 2000, and Block 6, planted in 2004, both French Dijon clones 777, with fruit from Block 3, planted in 2001, a French Dijon 667 clone. Growing conditions allowed us to add a dash of spicier, darker fruit from Block 10 located on the other side of our vineyard, planted in 1994 to the French Dijon clone 115. This wine was aged 25% in new French oak and aged 15 months in barrel before bottling.

 

2015 Pinot Noir

The Knudsen Vineyards 2015 Pinot Noir wine mirrors the style of previous vintages, blending estate grown fruit from Block 5, planted in 2001 and Block 6, planted in 2004, both French Dijon 777 clones, and Block 3, planted in 2001, a French Dijon 667 clone. This wine was aged 20% in new French oak and aged 16 months in barrel before bottling.

 

2016 Pinot Noir

This is the fifth vintage Pinot Noir from Knudsen Vineyards and reflects an early and ripe vintage of wonderful fruit with perfect natural acidity, great depth of flavor, structure and complexity. Grapes from Block 5, among the lower elevation blocks at Knudsen Vineyards, provide the foundation for this wine, reflecting a brilliant light garnet color, red, with a hint of darker, berry aromas, great fruit freshness, palette weight and length. Block 5 has 18 year old vines planted to the French Dijon 777 clone. This wine is enhanced and gains complexity with smaller and equal contributions from Block 3 French Dijon 777 and 667 clones planted in 2001 and darker, deeply aromatic fruit with mild earthiness from higher elevation Block 1, planted in 2007 with the heritage Pommard clone. The wine was aged 16 months in 20% new oak barrels prior to bottling. This is a beautifully textured, fresh fruited and drinkable wine which will age well for 5 – 10 years.

2014 Pinot Noir

Moderately light reddish purple color in the glass. A very gracious wine with vibrant aromas of cherry compote, Asian spice and a hint of graham. On the palate, there is impressive purity of dark cherry and blueberry fruit flavors with a savory thread in the background. The interplay of fruit and savory elements give the wine a special credence. The tannins are suave, the oak is deftly integrated, the thirst-quenching, lengthy finish is fueled with vivid, tangy cherry goodness.

 

2015 Pinot Noir

Brilliant ruby red color in the glass. A very friendly wine with aromas of ripe red cherry, cranberry, rose, sandalwood, and a touch of earth. Medium weight and concentration wrapped around a core of red fruits with cherry as the centerpiece. Additional accents include baking spices and brioche. Elegantly styled and forward drinking with supple tannins and a robust finish that builds richness over time in the glass.

 

2016 Pinot Noir

A bright ruby color denotes the vibrant youthfulness of this Dundee Hills Pinot Noir. The nose is blooming with soft rose petal, ripe raspberry and cherry pit. Touches of worn leather and warm, toasted oak linger in the background. The wine is medium-bodied, with pliable tannins and well-integrated acidity. It has a core of ripe cherry and an essence of strawberry, framed by a gentle herbal note which gives lift to a well-balanced finish.
