2018 Winderlea Dundee Hills Vineyards Pinot noir

505 cases produced

An homage to our neighbors and friends, the Dundee Hills Vineyards Pinot noir carries the original name of our estate and is an approachable and drinkable Pinot, focused and full, with firm but integrated tannins. The color is dense and penetrating blackberry, and the aromatics practically burst from the glass. There is ample potential for cellaring but it is so tasty now, it might not last that long.

Bramble meets baking spice and cherry, invoking both the forest floor and the dusty end to summer. Linen, tarragon, and cranberry move from the nose to the palate, lingering and swirling, punctuated by white peppercorn, cedar, and a structure of firm, fine tannins and bright, fresh acidity.

2017 Winderlea Weber Vineyard Pinot noir

376 cases produced

Buy Now Formerly known as Ana, the Weber vineyard overlooks our Estate Tasting Room and was planted only two years after Winderlea by longtime growers and pioneers Arthur and Vivian Weber.

These flavors are balanced by fine, powdery tannins, bright fruits, and a hint of cinnamon and lavender on a silky, long finish.
