2008 Arley’s Leap Pinot Noir
Named after Bill Wayne’s magnificent and long-ago departed dog, Arley, this is truly one of the great red wines of the Dundee Hills. The vines were planted in 1990 from several of the best Clos Electrique clones and have never failed to impress. As they approach 20 years of age, the resulting wine is becoming even more complex and elegant. The very small crop in 2008 adds intensity to a wine that already has plenty of it.
