From the new Dundee Hills AVA in the heart of Yamhill County, this Pinot includes roughly half of its fruit from the excellent Maresh vineyard. It jumps out with bright, fresh red fruits and spice and all in all it's young, vibrant and bursting with appealing berry and vanilla flavors. This is one to enjoy now, while the bloom of youth is in full force.
