The Eola-Amity Hills AVA as a unique terroir that sets it apart from the surrounding Willamette Valley viticultural area. Ancient lava flows and tectonic shift created the hills, and the weathered basalt soils here have proven perfect for premium winemaking.
Cool climate Oregon Pinot Noir, terroir driven. Aromatic, seductive and silky, with hints of dark berry, plum and spice flavors. Balanced undertones of mineral character on the long, polished finish. Destemmed, whole berry fermented in 1 ton open-top bins, hand punched. Aged in neutral French oak barrels, preserving the fruit with minimal winemaker intervention. Crafted in small lots, 1,090 six-pack cases produced.
