Dierke’s Organically certified hillside vineyard is nestled just off Bodega Highway within a diverse habitat of fruit trees, vegetable gardens, and beneficial plants. Continuing to evolve in both vineyard and bottle, the 2011 Dierke Pinot Noir is a vibrant wine. As the vines become more established, the muscular tannin profile is balanced by a gentle cellar hand and watchful eyes. Clone 828 continues the co-fermentation dance with the whimsical Mt. Eden, and together they emulate a unified sense of place, while maintaining their unique identities.

| BURGHOUND, 4th Quarter, 2013, Issue 52
“An ultra-pure and cool nose of rose petal, black cherry liqueur and a wide range of spice elements leads to tension-filled, intense and mouth coating medium weight flavors that brim with tannin-buffering dry extract, all wrapped in an impressively long, dusty and youthfully austere finish. Excellent quality here.” —Allen Meadows
THE WINE ADVOCATE #206, April 2013
“A big, substantial wine, the 2011 Pinot Noir Dierke impresses for its sheer heft and poise. Rich, intense and layered, today the Dierke comes across as an infant. The aromas and flavors remain quite undeveloped at this stage. It will be interesting to see where the Dierke goes over the next year. Today it is all about primary fruit, intensity and pure energy. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2023.” — Antonio Galloni
