SPREAD HOLIDAY CHEER WITH THE EOLA-AMITY DUO
One of the world’s most exciting wine regions, this Willamette Valley sub-AVA is also one of the coolest. Cold ocean breezes push through the Van Duzer Corridor—a gap in the Coast Range—to cool the vines in the afternoon. This climate, combined with shallow, well-drained Nekia and Jory volcanic soils, produces decadent and dark Pinot Noir with blue fruit, earth, violet, white pepper, kinetic acidity, and robust tannins. Within the Eola-Amity Hills, we source fruit from the Zena Crown and Palmer Creek vineyards.
2019 Zena Crown Vineyard Pinot Noir
Our winemaker Kate Ayres has a special affinity for the Zena Crown Vineyard, which lies toward the southern end of the Eola-Amity Hills sub-AVA. In this 2019 vintage, blackberry and dark cherry intertwine with vanilla spice and oak. A fresh sweetness upon entry evolves into fine-grained tannins, with a nearly floral component to the finish. The ultimate wine to open and sip while making risotto with the day’s truffle harvest.

Uncork this bottle to immerse your senses in vanilla and soft red fruit, braided with dark cherry, mocha notes, and a hint of white pepper in the background. Soft supple tannins on entry carry raspberry, earl grey, and a hint of oak to a pleasing finish. Grab a picnic basket, warm blankets, and take this wine to the coa
