Dusty ruby color. Aromas and flavors of plum, cinnamon tea, sulfur, and iron-rich earth with a lightly tannic, crisp, dryish light-to-medium body and a polished, short-to-medium finish that presents accents of cocoa powder with moderate oak flavor. A floral and fragrant Pinot Noir.
Duck Pond Cellars began growing fine Willamette Valley wine at our Dundee Hills winery in 1993. Since then we have farmed sustainably, crafting minimal-intervention wines that we hope faithfully reflect our unique Oregon climate, soil, and culture. For over 25 years, Duck Pond has been committed to farming the land sustainably and organically and using traditional winemaking techniques to craft pure, estate-driven wines. The 2020 vintage marks a historic moment for Duck Pond as the First Certified Natural Path Production Wine in America by the Clean Label Project™ — a national non-profit with the mission to bring truth and transparency to food and consumer product labeling.
Duck Pond wines are organically farmed, hand-harvested, and artfully crafted, achieving 90pt. scores or higher in most recent vintages produced by our winemaker, Julia Cattrall. Duck Pond wines embody and reflect a steadfast commitment to farming sustainably and organically. Our vision is to produce quality wines that express the region’s purest, most natural form, just as mother nature intended.
Pairs well with beef, veal, deer, venison, and poultry dishes.
