Wine Review: This bright red colored Pinot Noir from Oregon opens with a mild red raspberry bouquet with a hint of pomegranate. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and easy to drink. The flavor profile is a mild plum with hints of strawberry, old oak and dash of black pepper. The finish dry and it fades away nicely. This Pinot is food friendly and would pair well with pork tenderloin. Enjoy – Ken
Winemaker Notes: We have some great and talented neighbors in the Eola-Amity Hills. Our only bottling in this release to include non-estate fruit, this Pinot Noir is a collection from three vineyards within our AVA; young vines from Seven Springs along with Rocky Hill and Eola Springs vineyards. Our Pinot Noirs begin a natural, indigenous fermentation after a 4-5 day cold soak in our open-top oak and concrete fermenters. Twice daily, gentle punch-downs throughout the fermentation encourage soft extraction of the tannins. This wine was made with no new oak to highlight the purity of fruit and offer immediate pleasure upon release.
