Located on a steep slope in the Willamette Valley’s Eola-Amity Hills AVA, these grapes have a pretty stellar view! Winemaker Rachel Rose used all estate-grown fruit in this Pinot. Every clone from each soil type within the vineyard, from the lowest elevation to the highest, is in this wine, making it a true representation of the terroir found at the Bryn Mawr Vineyard site.

Bryn Mawr has this to say about their estate Pinot noir:

Each vintage is a unique snapshot of our vineyard’s development. In a sense it is a geographical time capsule, and lucky for us it can be conveyed by way of liquid libation.

On the back label, they rightly proclaim “high hill, high risk, high reward.” Bryn Mawr recently opened their spacious new tasting room, with views for days, and seating both inside and out. Just look at their view! Do yourself a favor and book an appointment to enjoy their wines while overlooking the vineyards in which they were grown.

Color:

Garnet

Bouquet:

Notes of cedar and sandalwood harmoniously blended with fruity aromas of red cherries and raspberries. Then earthy smells of gravel dust, thyme and forest floor gave way to mocha as this wine sat in my glass.

Palate:

First, abundant red fruit flavors of red and sour cherries, cranberries, and red raspberries tickled my tongue, followed closely by robust acidity and tannins that made my tastebuds stand at attention. Finally, baking spices, mocha, and cedar all mingled together from one sip to the next.

Food pairing suggestions:

Barbecue chicken pizza // parmesan herb baked Mahi Mahi // zucchini fritters
