[reg. $29.99] SPECIAL PRICE - $22.99 BTL./$275.88 CASE

Situated in the Dundee Hills, this estate is located in a great neighborhood, near Domaine Serene, White Rose and Domaine Drouhin. Making their own wines since 2000 as well as selling to top Oregon producers like Panther Creek and Soter, Vista Hills is making quite a name for themselves with their line-up of wines made from their fruit in different facilities by various top-level winemakers.

The 2009 Treehouse is made by Vista Hills General Manager Dave Petterson and done at Panther Creek. A fabulous wine at $30, they are offering us a stealth, special price for a limited time, so take advantage…Vista Hills makes rich Pinot Noirs. The 2009 Treehouse is engaging, aromatic, forward and laden with spice, smoke, plum and strawberry tones. Open-knit, welcoming with lovely ripe fruit and superbly woven-in acidity. Drawn-out and very pleasurable. Enjoy through 2017.

$31.99 BTL./$383.88 CASE

Made from Blocks G and K, the Marylhurst Pinot Noir is sturdier and darker-toned than the Treehouse. Dijon Clone 667 and 777 along with soil and site allow for this result. Dense full blackberry aspects. Luscious, ripe and revealing cinnamon and ground pepper. Rather crowd-pleasing and very likable through 2017+….Also, if you need accolades, this has 92 points from The Wine Enthusiast and wound up in their annual Top 100 list.

$39.99 BTL./$479.88 CASE

Sensuality abounds, the Piedmont Pinot Noir really exhibits the qualities of just how wonderful and classic the 2010 Pinot Noir vintage is for both Oregon and for Vista Hills. Made by Jim Sanders from Le Cadeau, this graceful and luxurious Pinot Noir is knockout juice and will be even more prolific in 3-5 more years. Aromatic, floral, spiced cinnamon stick and nutmeg build and crescendo from the glass. Youthful with a seducing core that's all in the mid-palate and will undoubtedly expand with cellar time. Fine and persistent, very velvety on the back end. Not undrinkable with decanting, but will be at its finest 2014 – 2021.

$13.99 BTL./$167.88 CASE

Vista Hills' Treehouse Pinot Gris is made from their original block which was planted in 1997. Well-balanced, harmonious, smoky and offering lovely red apple, melon and undertones of mandarin and classic Pinot Gris spice. Stuffed to the brim with flavor and a finish that's focused, vivid and vivacious, this is a wonderful sipper to start a meal or to serve with an array of seafood dishes and white meats.
