Winemaker's Notes:

The '08 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir has aromas of black cherry, raspberry, cedar, and sage along with flavors of black cherry, horehound, chicory coffee, and vanilla. The finish is long with smooth tannins.

The ultimate food wine, this Pinot noir is a brilliant match for any fare. From traditional Northwest cuisine, such as cedar-planked salmon or wild mushroom soup, to smoked or grilled meats - even just a great burger and truffle fries!

100% Pinot Noir

My Notes:

About Anne Amie:

When Dr. Robert Pamplin, one of Oregon's most forward-thinking philanthropists and businessmen, purchased the historic Chateau Benoit Winery in 1999, his vision was to create wines of the highest quality to reflect his passion for excellence. To this end Dr. Pamplin has charged General Manager Craig Camp, winemaker Thomas Houseman and winegrower Jason Tosch with the task of developing extraordinary pinot noir. Craig, Thomas and Jason are absolutely passionate about producing wines of the finest quality and have dedicated their lives to this quest.

Pinot reigns supreme at Anne Amie Vineyards with Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc forming the heart of our production. Complimenting the Pinot family, we also produce small selections of Riesling from our Willamette Valley estate vineyard on the hillside directly in front of the winery. As with all great wines, ours start in the vineyards and we are fortunate to have some of Oregons best sites, both those farmed by us and those we contract with to purchase. Our vineyards (as do the ones we purchae from) receive only the minimal required treatments and yields are severely reduced to yield fruit with great depth and complexity.
