Alexana Winery 2015 Estate West Blocks Sedimentary Soils Pinot Noir, Dundee Hills, $70
Texan cardiologist Dr. Madaiah Revana continues to push for the exploration of the 18 soil types across his 80 acres in Oregon’s Dundee Hills, and Bryan Weil sources four clones – Dijon 115, 667, Coury and Pommard — grown in sedimentary soil for this tribute to the 10th anniversary vintage. It shows classic Dundee Hills notes of high-toned red fruit, starting with a nose of Montmorency cherry and currant with dusty rose petals and lavender. Inside, it’s full of juicy Bing cherry, Craisin and red currant flavors that come without any distraction by tannins.
