Winemaker's Notes:

This single vineyard bottling has a very complex nose, which takes a little time to open. Then, cherries and dark fruit can be recognized with some earthy tones mixed in. On the palate there is a hint of sweetness which leads into big cherry flavors with well-balanced acid and tannins. The wine gives a long finish and we believe it will cellar for up to 15 years. It is our first Vineyard bottling for Schouten Vineyards.
My Notes:

About Amity Vineyards:

Amity means friendship. Amity vineyards is a family and friends run winery. Located in the Eola-Amity Hills of Yamhill County. Winemaker Myron Redford moved to Oregon in 1974 with a dream to make world class Pinot Noir. A pioneer, he was the first to produce organically grown sulfite-free wine. The first vineyards were planted in 1971. Total acres 15, planted to, Pinot Noir, Riesling and Pinot Blanc with additional contracted. Darcy Pendergrass, winemaker from 2007 through 2012, and a huge investment in new and very gentle wine processing equipment have paid off with new heights of quality at this property. Ryan Harms & family from Union Wine Company purchased Amity in 2014.
