Alexana Winery 2018 West Blocks – Sedimentary Soils Pinot Noir, Dundee Hills, $75

By on June 14, 2021

Vines now cover more than 55 acres of the 80-acre parcel Dr. Madaiah Revana purchased in the Dundee Hills west of Portland, and this nearly two-decade-old site now offers 31 microblocks for winemaker Byran Weil to work with. The graduate of Oregon State University’s enology and viticulture program has crafted a Pinot Noir focused on dark purple fruit such as elderberry, Bing cherry and blackcurrant with a nicely balanced structure that’s juicy with a finish of mint and pomegranate.
