The VDK represents the pinnacle of our extended-barrel aged Pinot Noir. Sourced from the very best batch of our Van Der Kamp vineyard this wine spends more than 24 months in the finest Burgundian oak barrels. Like all La Pitchoune wines, we pride ourselves with creating exceptional balance between the grapes, the soil, the vineyard location, and the barrels. The VDK turns it up to 11. This wine is for those who truly understand the concept of old-world balanced wines that will only get better with even more bottle-aging.

"Pale ruby-purple colored, the 2014 Pinot Noir VDK leaps form the glass with fragrant pomegranate, wild strawberries, raspberry leaves and rhubarb notes plus hints of roses, cinnamon stick and forest floor. Medium-bodied with gorgeous elegance and bags of finesse, the palate is filled with fragrant red fruit layers and a silken texture, finishing with great freshness and on a lingering mineral note". - Robert Parker/The Wine Advocate
"The flagship release from this estate is the 2014 Pinot Noir VDK from the van der Kamp vineyard on Sonoma Mountain. Impressive notes of spiced cherries, pomegranate, spring flowers, and candied violets all give way to a medium-bodied, round, plump, impressively textured beauty..." - Jeb Dunnuck
