2015 Eola-Amity Cuvée Pinot Noir
A classic expression of the Eola-Amity Hills AVA, the aroma leads with Marionberry and dark cherry, accented wtih ripe strawberry, blueberry, and rose. 54% new French oak aging adds to the aroma with cedar/spice notes, leather, pipe tobacco, and vanilla. A full entry on the palate is balanced between juicy acid and smooth tannins. Flavors suggesting a bowlful of mixed berries are complemented by herbal complexity found in tobacco, thyme, and sage. The finish is structured with high quality, fine grained tannins and enough acid to balance. Delicious to drink now, yet will continue to cellar exquisitely through 2025.
