I’ve been to Portland a few times. Nice town. Never ventured up county though. Eola-Amity is one of the cooler spots for growing Pinot Noir, apparently. In the southern bits of the Willamette Valley.
It’s rosy and spicy, with a crushed rock feel, red cherry and strawberry, and a slight smokiness. Medium-bodied, sappy and full of fresh cherry and red fruit, a smattering of aromatic herbs, tannin has a fine chalky feel offering sure grip, and then a spicy and floral vanilla-tinged finish of excellent length. So vibrant and engaging. Beautiful wine. Distinct sense of place, too.
