Eola-Amity Hills sub AVA
Willamette Valley AVA
he color of a sun-kissed peach, this rosé was made using Pinot noir grapes from the Eola-Amity Hills in Oregon’s Willamette Valley. With the first whiff, ripe, just-picked strawberries jumped out of our glasses. In our mouths, we tasted the strawberries but also some cherry candy and white pepper.
Year after year, the Brooks wines always has nice acid levels and long finishes. This vintage of their rosé fits that trait to a tee.
Pop this bottle open while hanging out on the porch- it’s a great summer sipper. It would also pair well with grilled vegetables and chicken dishes as well as a crusty baguette smeared with brie cheese.
We think this rosé is all about summer but buy a few bottles and stash them away as the weather begins to cool. Rosé wine is a nice wine to drink all year long.
