2008 Abbey Ridge Pinot Noir
From some of the oldest vines in Oregon, this block of own-rooted 35 year-old majestic wonders has been Cameron’s flagship wine since our beginning. Its high elevation guarantees that it will always be one of the last vineyards harvested in the Dundee Hills year after year, with natural high acidities and moderate alcohols reminiscent of traditional red Burgundy. Aromas are generally dominated by floral characteristics of rose petal and sometimes rosemary (see Abbey Ridge Chardonnay). Nearly 2 years in a mixture of 1-3 year old barrels allows the wine to mature properly without being overwhelmed by aromas of wood.
