Salem Wine Co. Pinot Noir 2015 (Oregon, USA) "...raspberry, strawberry, earthy spice..."
The Evening Land vineyard was established in 2005, with a simple focus on Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Biodynamic dry farming has been the guiding principle since day one, and the estate has developed to become perhaps the single most highly regarded grower in Oregon.
The 2015 Salem Wine Co. Pinot Noir is source from 3 vineyards within our home AVA of Eola-Amity Hills. Beginning with our bio-dynamically farmed Seven Springs estate vineyard, the blend is augmented with fruit from Eola Springs and Rocky Hill, two neighbouring sites in the appellation. All 3 sites are dry-farmed in volcanic soils. The Salem Wine Co. Pinot Noir was crafted to be approachable in its youth. The wine is an authentic representation of the Eola-Amity Hills with minimal sulfur and no new cooperage employed.
"Classic raspberry, strawberry and earthy spice. The palate is focused, juicy and elegant with lovely fruit. Fine, expressive and bright with red cherries and subtle herbs. Lovely sappy detail here with real purity and a red fruit quality."
