Welcome to Dundee.

2022 Cameron Dundee Hills Pinot Noir (750ml)


This wine is a marriage of declassified fruit from both of John Paul’s top ‘grand cru’ vineyards—Abbey Ridge (farmed by his neighbor—Bill Wayne) and the legendary estate vineyard ‘Clos Electrique’—named for the electric fence that encloses the vines in John's front yard. 

It’s probably not a secret that I love these wines with my heart and soul.

Since they became available in Connecticut, this is the single producer that continues to dominate my personal wine diet.  

Every wine John makes manifests an intrinsic Cameron-esque taste and feel that I haven’t found anywhere.

So what’s in the Cameron secret sauce? 

If you asked JP I know he’s mentioned at least these three practices: 

Dry Farming—JP is in fact the driving force behind ‘DRC’—the Deep Roots Coalition. Farming without irrigation forces the vines to dig deep in search of water—affording the wines a comprehensive profile of the substrata that lies beneath.  

Clonal Selection/Diversity—John believes that the best way to make a complex wine is to start with a diverse selection of plants in the vineyard. To this end—John is a devout collector of Pinot Noir clones which he has cultivated for decades in Clos Electrique and Abbey Ridge. 

Organic Farming—Quite simply, farming with care and without synthetic chemicals. 

Besides these tenets—fermentation with indigenous yeast is paramount. As is a slow, lengthy slumber in basically neutral French oak barrels. 

The wine is mouthwatering now and will reward the patient drinker over the next 10 years+ if you can wait that long. Despite my good intentions, generally, I cannot. 

Quantity is limited. 

Orders will be filled first come, first served. 

Limit 12 bottles per customer please.

Happy weekend. 

Codey Foster, Wine Director

 

A note from John:

Visual: A deep ruby, which belies intensity. Certain of a high ratio of skin to juice. The tears are persistent and thick. This is a warm vintage by appearance alone.

Nose: First and foremost bing cherry. Maybe a little stewed. Accentuated by a cocoa nib base note. Straw and sandalwood.  Turkish fig, iodine and boysenberry. Ferrous on the nose, I want to say blood.  A back note of sage and come with me on this one, nasturtium.

Palette: Cherry juice, but also shows more levity, and pushes closer to ripe hood strawberry on the palette. You know, when hoods get a little nasty, and are like ripe jam fireworks on the tongue? That. Also library chair leather, candied orange rind, lavender, soft tannins that roll across the tongue.

Pretty good!
