Wine Review: This bright red colored Pinot Noir from Van Duzer opens with mild cherry-cola bouquet with a hint of strawberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, savory and juicy. The flavor profile is plum with notes of purple grape. I also detected a hint of cherry-cola in the background. The finish is dry and fades away nicely. This Pinot would pair well with cherry amaretto chicken with whipped mashed potatoes. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The Eola Amity Hills blend features notes of red fruits including Bing cherries and wild strawberries. A hint of white pepper dabs the nose with French vanilla, roses and orange blossoms. A sweetness, recalling juicy, fresh strawberries, persists and contributes to a mouthwatering sensation on the mid-palate, while textural tannins create length with a savory after-taste of brown sugar and cherry cola.
