Wine Review: This very dark ruby colored Pinot Noir from Oregon opens with a very attractive blueberry and acai berry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, nicely balanced, elegant and super silky. The flavor profile is a tasty mild black currant and blueberry blend with hints of faint minerality, old oak and gentle black plum. The finish is dry and its very refined tannins and flavors fade away nicely. This Pinot is extremely food friendly and would pair well with a filet mignon. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: We are happy to make this Eola-Amity Pinot Noir exclusively from the Sojourner Vineyard, 2 years in a row. The mouthwatering aromas of chocolate-covered cherries, cigar box and tobacco are nicely structured with layers of raspberry compote, cherry, rhubarb pie and mocha. The finish is full and voluptuous with flavors of cocoa powder and lush tannins.

Organic status: not organic
