Brooks Amycas Willamette Valley 2006
2006 Amycas A fanciful name for a blend of noble white varietals. Pure, complex and diverse, just like the world. The label features the Alchemic symbol for "vinegar" ... only it's turned upside down! Immediate aromas of ripe peaches, lime, white flowers, citrus fruits, clover honey and ripe cavaillon melons. With air, apricots, tangerines, wet stones, cinnamon and clove notes, nectarines and hints of fresh hay add to the complexity. Rich texture and great focus. Intriguing blend of honey and minerals with a broad mid-palate is rich, with good texture and presence. A great value for a powerful wine.

Brooks is a small producer making handcrafted rieslings and pinot noirs in the Willamette Valley of Oregon. We believe that wine begins in the vineyard thus invest our resources in only sustainable farming methods. We work hard to keep our price points low so that you can enjoy our wine on a daily basis! Cheers.
A fascinating blend of Alsatian grapes. Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, Gewurtztraminer, Muscat and Riesling. fruit salad on the nose. lots of peach and apricots on the palate with lots of honey and some alcohol heat that blows away by the second glass. This wine is food friendly but I would recommend it more with chicken than seafood since it doesn't have that BITE that seafood goes with. I think the $15 price point is perfect for the quality.
