Anam Cara Pinot Noir Chehalem Mountains Estate Reserve 2007
Each of our wines is created from the beautiful Nicholas Estate vineyard, located in Oregon's Chehalem Mountains AVA. The 35 acre vineyard is certified L.I.V.E. and Salmon Safe and consists of 5 blocks of Pinot Noir (Pommard and Dijon clones 114, 115, 667 and 777) and one acre each of Riesling and Gewurztraminer. Two acres each of Wadenswil Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Riesling came on line with the 2011 harvest.
Editorial Reviews for Anam Cara Pinot Noir Chehalem Mountains Estate Reserve
This offers up seductive aromas of earthy toned burnished cherry fruit with floral and mineral tones to the slightly astringent red fruit tones. On the palate this is already velvety with a core of rich fruit that exhibits fine transparency in an elegant and fresh package. The fruit is pure and yet offers up nicely detailed complexity and finishes with fine cleansing acidity and length. 92pts

Wonderfully delicate, yet layered with flavors and aromas, tones of wild blackberries, plums, red cherries combine with earthy notes of cocoa and dusty sandalwood. The underlying minerality is the signature of the vineyard.
