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.

Your comments on this wine:





Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
