Wine Profile

Tasting Notes Wine Enthusiast writes, "strawberry fruit defines this open, broad-flavored wine. The palate is smooth in feel and carries accessible red-fruit flavors that offer immediate appeal."

Located in the Eola-Amity Hills AVA of the Willamette Valley, this Pinot noir vineyard is planted in the Pommard and Wadensville clones and is approximately 20 years old.
