Rich & Juicy

A wine from a collaboration between Nicholas Pearce and Will Predhomme to create wines from their favourite regions. 

While labeled as Willamette Valley, nearly all of the wine from this bottling came from the Dundee Hills AVA. Located 28 miles southwest of Portland, the Dundee Hills AVA encompasses 6,490 acres with geology dating back 15 million years when lava owed from northeast Oregon and pushed into the Willamette Valley, covering all but the
highest hills with up to 1,000 feet of basalt. An ideal climate combined with ancient, complex Jory soil produces wines that show pure fruit, bright acidity, intense depth, and a classic balance.

Aromas of red plums, black currant, ripe strawberries, spicy, and cedar. The palate is fresh, lively, loads of raspberries and cherries. Fine tannins and a peppery spice on the finish.

Pinot Noir is very versatile to pair. This wine will go well with fish like salmon and is also delicious with duck confit and other roast meats and mushrooms.

Press Reviews

91 points - David Lawrason

This is a very pleasant, pretty and tidy pinot noir from Oregon - with nicely ripe cherry fruit inlaid with fine spicy, forest floor complexity. The nose is very appealing. It is mid-weight at most, nicely rounded and balanced with warmish alcohol and fine tannin. The fruit core and presence is impressive. The length is excellent. Tasted April 2023

90 points - Michael Godel

Mature fruit in this triple P, substantial and upwards of at least eight out of ten on the phenolic scale as it pertains to the Willamette Valley. Some verdancy yet the right kind of green, like spring vascular plants that reproduce via spores and have neither seeds nor flowers. These are scents of roots, stems and leaves, earthy, twiggy and savoury, all together making for a truly authentic varietal experience. Good mid-palate weight, high level acidity yet feeling a tad boozy and also peppery upon the finish. Plenty of attack, mostly in balance, rising then culminating at a cymbaleer sound and brassy profile. Maybe let it rest a year. Drink 2024-2027. Tasted April 2023.
