Vineyard info: La Colina Vineyard is located in the Dundee Hills AVA and was planted in 1999 to a mixture of Wadenswil and Pommard pinot noir clones. The elevation is 600 ft. and has a south east orientation.

 

Appellation and soil: Dundee Hills is known for its rich, red volcanic Jory soils, which were formed from ancient volcanic basalt and consist of silt, clay and loam. They typically reach a depth of 4-6 feet and provide excellent drainage. Signature characteristics of the Dundee Hills include bright red strawberry and cherry notes mixed with warm spice and earth.

 

General info: The beautiful rolling La Colina Vineyard was our first vineyard holding and it’s been an exceptional site from the very beginning, turning out many of our favorite barrels in the cellar year after year.

 

Seems like yesterday La Colina was a young upstart vineyard making its way onto the Dundee Hills scene. Now, suddenly, a 6 yr old vineyard is 20! The vines are thick and have the feeling of “I got this”. La Colina always had a signature which is what makes great vineyards, even in its youth, but now it’s reached a stage where it’s beginning to transcend and the 2017 vintage is evidence of that.

 

Great ruby dominates color in this 2017 La Colina Pinot Noir with strands of blue hinting at the liveliness of the vintage. Tabacco and cola greet the nose as does flint and dark cherry. Succulent and juicy the entry contains mystery and power, despite a shyness that reflects its youth. Citrus, dried flower, stone fruit, oak, anise and wintergreen all show up in this wine. Poignant and composed, this La Colina is just getting started on its journey toward greatness.
