“Underwood Mountain Vineyards has so many of the right elements needed to make a delicious and terroir-driven Pinot Noir from WA – climate, location, careful clone selection, soil type,… The 2013 growing season in the Columbia Gorge was a near-perfect one for these grapes, providing a slow and steady ripening that resulted in flavor, mouthfeel, and finish coming into a perfect balance.”
