Flavors suggest a bowlful of mixed berries that are complemented by herbal complexity found in tobacco, thyme, and sage. This full-bodied Pinot Noir pairs beautifully with the robust flavors of tagliatelle with wild boar ragout and aged cheddar.

Our Eola-Amity Hills Cuvée is blended from sites with consistent ripening
potential, tempered by the cooling winds of the Van Duzer Corridor. Dark fruited
aromas of blackberry, dark cherry, and blueberry transition to floral violet and
oak infused vanilla and cinnamon spice. The mouthfeel is medium bodied
and framed by structured tannins. Juicy acid complements the age-worthy
tannins, helping to carry the finish and preserving freshness as the tannins mature.
Flavors of dark fruits maintain the theme of the aroma with added spicy elements
of thyme, fennel, and vanilla from aging in 33% new oak barrels. The medium
-long finish highlights the aging potential of this darker shade of Pinot Noir.
