2009 Bethel Heights Estate Eola-Amity Hills Pinot Noir 750ml
Bethel Heights is one of the oldest vineyards in the Eola-Amity Hills, a hill chain of volcanic origin in the center of Oregon’s Willamette Valley. The “Black Label” Estate Grown Pinot Noir blends fruit from all the different sections of the 70-acre estate, with its backbone of own-rooted Wädenswil and Pommard clones planted in 1977 and 1979, enhanced by the later plantings of the best new Dijon clones available after 1988.
WINE SPECTATOR REVIEW: Light in texture and weight, but shows real presence with its strawberry and cherry fruit, with cinnamon and talcum overtones. Finishes with refinement and grace. Drink now through 2019.
