On the nose, there is an immediate burst of bright, fresh red fruits, including strawberry and raspberry, followed by an earthy quality. On the palate, the wine has fine texture, soft tannins, good acidity and a strong core of fruit. It is a wine that offers immediate pleasure, on its own, or better yet, in the company of a delicious meal. All in all, this is classic Pinot Noir.
Coudline is vinified under the careful eye of consulting winemaker Vronique Drouhin-Boss of Domaine Drouhin winery.-Winemaker Notes
Cloudline Cellars represents a first for Dreyfus, Ashby--their own wine. Given their love for Pinot Noir and their long history developing Domaine Drouhin Oregon and other fine wines, it's probably not surprising that they've choosen Oregon's Willamette Valley as the home for this exciting project.
The goal is very specific: to create the best, most delicious and consistent value in Oregon Pinot Noir today. They are fortunate to have access to top sources, growers and vintners who understand and support what Dreyfus, Ashby is trying to accomplish. They have also enlisted the expertise of Veronique Drouhin-Boss, who has graciously agreed to be the consulting winemaker, or more appropriately, their "reference palate." In practical terms, she makes sure the quality never wavers.-Winery Notes
