    Winemaker Notes

    Aromas of dark herbs, blackberries, violets, dark red cherries, cranberries, a touch of dark chocolate, raspberries and clove. Full bodied with silky tannins and a long peppery finish. Polished and extremely balanced. A bold and sophisticated snapshot of their estate pinot noir. Clove, cocoa nibs, cherry cola, and plum compote burst forth with alluring and seductive velvety tannins. This wine is a blockbuster.

    Enjoy this Pinot Noir with black peppercorn crusted NY steak with garlic mashed potatoes, roasted brussels sprouts and a peppercorn demi sauce.

    Brooks, Oregon
    Founded in 1998, Brooks is a reflection of the visionary Portland native, Jimi Brooks. His reverence for the land and vines made him a practitioner of organic and biodynamic farming. The great respect for vineyard individuality and mastery of blending, allowed his wines to achieve the greatest depth, flavors and balance.

    Eola-Amity Hills Wine

    Willamette Valley, Oregon

    Running north to south, adjacent to the Willamette River, the Eola-Amity Hills AVA has shallow and well-drained soils created from ancient lava flows (called Jory), marine sediments, rocks and alluvial deposits. These soils force vine roots to dig deep, producing small grapes with great concentration.

    Like in the McMinnville sub-AVA, cold Pacific air streams in via the Van Duzer Corridor and assists the maintenance of higher acidity in its grapes. This great concentration, combined with marked acidity, give the Eola-Amity Hills wines—namely Pinot noir—their distinct character. While the region covers 40,000 acres, no more than 1,400 acres are covered in vine.

    Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
