Winemaker's Notes:

This is a smooth, medium bodied, flavorful, soft Pinot Noir that is excellent for drinking now. However, it can be aged longer. The wine is excellent with wild mushrooms, as well as red meat and barbecued salmon. Our Oregon Pinot Noir is a combination of our lighter or more early maturing lots of wine. All the grapes were grown in the Northern Willamette Valley, Oregons premier Pinot noir growing region. Fifty-five percent of the wine was kept in stainless steel to preserve fruitiness. The balance was aged in neutral French oak for about 10 months. Amity, as a policy, uses NO new oak.
