Winemaker Notes

Our 2006 Winemaker's Selection Pinot Noir is vibrant ruby in color. The nose is robust and juicy with touches of brambly maple syrup and wild forest fruits like wild blackberry and strawberry with highlights of toffee and tobacco. Great structure supports the complex flavors of espresso and porcini mushrooms over dark marionberry fruit. The finish is firm with long flavors that hint of cassis and black truffle. 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 or just a great burger and truffle fries.

RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2006 Pinot Noir Winemaker’s Selection spent nine months in a mix of seasoned and new French oak. Medium- to dark ruby-colored, the nose offers up spicy, toasty black cherry and black raspberry aromas leading to a dense, plush, dark fruit flavored wine with good complexity and concentration. There are no hard edges to this tasty effort which will drink well over the next six years.

Once known as Chateau Benoit, the winery focused on sparkling wines in its earliest incarnation. In 1999 the Benoits retired, the winery was sold, and the first Anne Amie vintage occurred in 2001. The bubbly is history and the estate now produces 14,500 cases of table wine from its 120 acres, 55 in production.

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.

Other Red Blends

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
