Alexana Winery 2018 Revana Vineyard Pinot Noir, Dundee Hills, $55

By on November 9, 2021

Dr. Revana’s hilltop property in the Dundee Hills is home to 10 clones of Pinot Noir – including “suitcase” examples from famed La Tâche in Burgundy and the one credited to Willamette Valley maverick Charles Coury — and winemaker Bryan Weil gathered them all for this bold, rich and juicy expression from the 18 soils types across the 55-acre site. By Oct. 8, all these lots were in the door, and they spent 11 months in a barrel program of 27% new French oak. Tones of dusty strawberry, boysenberry and sweet herbs lead to a balanced but big structure that could be described as a Cab lover’s Pinot Noir that leads out with a blueberry/pomegranate finish.
