Evesham Wood Pinot Noir Eola Amity 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

"Deep red with a bright rim. Intensely perfumed aromas of black raspberry, dried rose, allspice and cola. Silky in texture and impressively deep in dark fruit and candied floral flavors, with notes of cola and star anise adding power. This is really complex, especially for a "basic" wine. Silky tannins build on the finish, adding structure without distracting from the sweet, sappy fruit. This is alluringly seamless and complex but I'll bet it will be even better with a few years of bottle age. About 80% of this fruit came from the Temperance Hill vineyard...91" IWC 07/10

Nestled on a lower terrace of the Eola-Amity Hills’ eastern slope in Oregon’s Willamette Valley, our east facing 13 acre estate vineyard, Le Puits Sec, was planted in 1986. The soils are primarily basalt-derived volcanic and very well-drained, thus yielding pinot noir with great structure and at the same time aromatic and with finesse. As well, chardonnay and the Alsatian varieties thrive in this micro-climate, producing intensely varietal yet subtle wines. Evesham Wood obtained organic certification for both our estate vineyard and winery from Oregon Tilth in 2000. In addition, we are charter members of the Deep Roots Coalition, an advocacy group for wines produced exclusively from non-irrigated vines. Since 2005 Evesham Wood has been associated with the international organic/biodynamic organization, “Renaissance des Appellations”, whose members are required to adhere to rigid organic and quality standards.
