Winemaker's Notes:

The signature of this wine is intense black cherry fruit with hints of black pepper. The powerful fruit makes it enjoyable young; the underlying structure bodes well for aging.

inot noir complements a wide range of foods. Some of the classic partners are salmon, lamb, and wild mushrooms. A Bethel Heights favorite is grilled duck breast with marionberry sauce.

About Bethel Heights Vineyard:

Planted between 1977 and 1979, Bethel Heights was one of the first vineyards in the Eola Hills, a chain of hills in the center of Oregon's Willamette Valley. The estate winery was established in 1984 and currently produces 10,000 cases of wine annually, most of which still comes from the 50 acre estate vineyard. Bethel Heights specializes in Pinot Noir, but also produces Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc.
