2020 Eola-Amity Hills Cuvée Pinot Noir
The 2020 Eola-Amity Hills Cuvée is showing more red fruit than we normally see from these vineyards. Lovely aromas of cherry pie, pomegranate, and earl grey tea are balanced by caramelized sugar, toasted oak and delicate marionberry. A smooth entrance with a beautifully concentrated, mid-palate mouthfeel, and mouthwatering acidity, washes away to reveal smooth tannins. The flavors mirror the aromas with notes of ripe raspberry, stewed cherries, marionberry pie with a hint of rosemary and hibiscus. The use of 30% new French oak for 10 months leads us to a velvety, rich, and sensational finish with flavors of white pepper lingering on the palate. This wine will age for another year but will be best enjoyed young.
