Winemaker's Notes:

"The entry-level (based on price and lack of vineyard designation) 2006 Pinot Noir Eola-Amity Hills is medium-dark ruby with an enticing nose of spice box, cherry, and raspberry. Supple and easy-going on the palate, the wine has a silky texture, sweet fruit, some depth, and a pure finish. Drink this elegant effort over the next four years."

Pinot Noir is notoriously fickle, but can be brilliant when grown in the right terroir. Expression Wines represent a commitment to producing the finest Pinot Noir from the best sub-appellations on the West Coast.

Our vineyards at different latitudes represent different 'Expressions' of great Pinot Noir and our winemaker, Richard Sowalsky, is dedicated to crafting only the best wines from each region. Our winegrowing regions include the Santa Rita Hills (34°), the Sonoma Coast (38°), the Anderson Valley (39°), and the Eola-Amity Hills (44°) of Willamette Valley, Oregon.

Our goal is to showcase both the 'Grand-Cru' vineyards and the terroir of each sub-appellation. Each vintage, we will be bringing to you our finest blends from each latitude as well as small single vineyard designate lots that represent the best of what our vineyards can deliver!
