2016 'Tacet' Eola-Amity Hills Willamette Valley Pinot Noir
Pinot Noir •Eola Springs
Oregon: Willamette Valley
With its rolling hillsides and cool ocean breezes sweeping its South to North axis, the Eola-Amity Hills is paradise for Pinot Noir. In classic Oregon style, today’s wine truly expresses what this region is well known for, bridging the sensibilities of the Old World style of Pinot with the ripe, upfront fruitiness of the Pacific Northwest.
Invitingly vibrant, this beauty shines with a bright ruby core fading to a glowing purple rim that instantly greets the eye. On the expressive nose, bold black cherries seeped in exotic spices, sage, sun dried tomatoes and pink peppercorns abound. The palate blooms with strawberry, rhubarb and pomegranate nuances, all laced with a pleasant, refreshing herbal savoriness. Long and spicy on the persistent finish, with an earthy traction and a glorious buildup of lingering, velvety texture. Certainly a food wine that calls for a roast free range chicken or game with sweet root vegetables.
