Willamette Valley AVA


achel Rose, Bryn Mawr Vineyards’ winemaker, exhibits a soft touch when making wine. Which can be quite a feat when working with fruit from the lower portion of the Willamette Valley– the flavors are inherently a bit bolder from this area.

With about half the Pinot noir grapes in this wine from Eola-Amity Hills estate-grown fruit and the rest from a vineyard in the Dundee Hills sub AVA, she dialed back the bold and added new complexity. The estate Pinot clones are 115 & 113 and Pommard comes from the Dundee Hills fruit.

A lovely transparent cherry red, this Pinot had very classic Willamette Valley aromas. Mushrooms and forest floor were woven into delicate woody notes of cedar and sandalwood. With a light mouthfeel, good acidity, this wine was elegant and refined on the palate. Black cherries sprinkled with both black and pink peppercorns as well as a light dusting of salt wrapped around our tongues. This wine possessed a distinct, consistent band of flavor from start to its long finish, a sign of excellent quality in our opinions. With only 375 cases produced, pick up this wine before its all gone!
