2012 EOLA-AMITY HILLS PINOT NOIR

2012 EOLA-AMITY HILLS PINOT NOIR

Eola-Amity Hills AVA in Oregon's Willamette Valley ranges from the town of Amity in the north to Salem in the south and encompasses the Eola and Amity hills. The name Eola derives from Aeolus, the Greek god of the wind. Located close to the Van Duzer Corridor, the Pacific cooling effect is more pronounced than the rest of the Willamette Valley, yet more moderate than average conditions experienced at Van Duzer.

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.
