Since 2002, Dusky Goose has called the Dundee Hills home. Nestled between the protective rain shadow of Oregon’s Coast Range to the West and the majestic Cascade Range to the East, our Rambouillet Estate Vineyard lies in the cool climate heart of the Willamette Valley, perfectly suited for growing World Class Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
2013 Dundee Hills Pinot Noir
Our 2013 Dundee Hills Pinot Noir is a classic example of the Dundee Hills region. This wine starts out with lovely black pepper aromatics, followed by beautiful earthiness and mushroom notes. The bright acidity and richness throughout creates a balanced, cooler vintage wine.
The 2013 vintage in the Willamette Valley was a challenging one due to the onset of a rain storm in September. This resulted in harvesting the fruit in two picks. Even though this vintage presented challenges, the wines produced show great quality - with many considering the coolness and longer hang-time a big benefit, preserving acidity and flavors, while minimizing alcohol.Shop 2013 Dundee Hills Pinot

Improving With Age
Dundee Hills Pinot Noir
Time is the ultimate luxury and the best wines in the world self-identify by their improvement with age. Dusky Goose wines are no exception. Each vintage, we earmark a selection of cases to be sold after extended cellaring. This is your opportunity to get a last look at bygone exceptional vintages in limited release offerings.
Our Dundee Origins
Dusky Goose was founded in 2002 in Dundee – Oregon’s premier winegrowing region, by John and Linda Carter.
The object from the beginning was to make memorable, age-worthy wines that rival the best examples of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from the Old World.
