2016 Domaine Drouhin Dundee Hills Pinot Noir

SKU #1412099 96 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Incredible clarity and purity of dark red cherries on the nose here. This is a stunning young pinot. The palate has a very plush, fleshy and concentrated core of rich black cherries with toasty oak spice overlaid. Long, noble tannins. This is exceptional. Drink or hold. Inner quote mark (10/2018)

93 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark The 2016 vintage defies Veronique Drouhin’s customary restraint: It’s heady with aromas of cherry and strawberry, the forward fruit feeling almost pulpy on the palate. Yet notes of tanbark and firm, spicy tannins rein it in so that the wine maintains a kind of opulent grace, rich and sleek at once. (PJC) Inner quote mark (4/2020)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Deep bright-hued red. Fresh red and blue fruits, pungent flowers, star anise, sassafras and a hint of smoky minerals on the deeply perfumed nose. Juicy and focused on the palate, offering intense boysenberry and black raspberry flavors that are lifted and sharpened by a spine of zesty acidity. The spice and floral notes come back strong on an impressively long, seamless finish, where silky tannins sneak in late. (JR) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Precise and polished, with slightly brooding black cherry and green tea flavors that fan out and build structure toward fine-grained tannins. Drink now through 2025. (TF) Inner quote mark (10/2019)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2016 Dundee Hills Pinot Noir is pale to medium ruby-purple with a nose of warm red cherries, dried cranberries and crushed blueberries with accents of Earl Grey tea, dried leaves and earth. Light to medium-bodied, it has good concentration of red and blue fruits in the mouth with forest/earthy touches and cinnamon suggestions, with a good frame of fine-grained tannins and lovely juicy acidity, finishing long and spicy. (EB) Inner quote mark (8/2019)

91 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This lovely and seductive wine from a top producer delivers a supple, smooth and silky mix of orange peel, strawberry compote and chocolate bonbon flavors. At its relatively modest price, you can't hope for a better value for iconic Dundee Hills Pinot Noir. (PG) Inner quote mark (8/2018)

90 points Decanter

Outer quote mark This is the domaine's current release, made from vines planted between 1988 and 2012. Grown on deep Jory soils, gently extracted and matured in oak (20% new) this is all about fruit: it opens with a note of luscious, slightly smoky ripe cherry, verging into almost black fruit. The palate opens with juicy, exuberant black cherry and more subtle smoke. Ripeness and generosity are checked by lovely freshness and a supple body that help to define that fleshy fruit. Drinking Window 2020 - 2028. (AK) Inner quote mark (1/2020)
