A brilliant and nice Ruby red in color. The nose is delicate, floral, and fruity, with red fruits, wildflowers, and noble wood fragrance. The wine is fine, subtle in the mouth. The tension is balanced by a delicate tannic structure, and the palate is full of fruits (raspberry, strawberry, blackberry) and spices (pepper, clove). The minerality dominates a long and elegant finale.
Meaning 'discovery' in French and produced from the second Estate Vineyard owned by Résonance, the Découverte Vineyard Pinot Noir displays the best of the Dundee Hills AVA. Elegant yet structured, the wine is complex on the nose and palate with classic Pinot Noir aromas and flavors and a long finish.
Pairs well with lightly seasoned red meats, chicken, turkey, lamb, and root vegetables.
"Effortlessly expressive and complex, with violet and cherry aromas and supple flavors accented by savory cinnamon and stony mineral. Drink now through 2023." 94 points, Wine Spectator
"With production almost quadruple the previous vintage, the overall quality remains just as impressive. The nose offers baking spices and a hint of earthy tobacco, while the palate brings black cherry, with elegant herbal notes of tea and more tobacco. The tannins are proportionate and a bit drying, suggesting that this is one to cellar. Drink now–2028." 92 points, Cellar Selection, Wine Enthusiast
"The 2015 Pinot Noir Découverte Vineyard has a medium ruby color and scents of rhubarb, cranberries, forest floor and mushroom with touches of cinnamon stick, blackberries and black cherries. It’s medium-bodied, smoothly textured but firm, with great freshness to lift the dense finish." 92 points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
