$15 tasting fee waived with the purchase of any 2 bottles of wine.

(1) 2015 Gamay Rose   $21.00/btl

~~ Wow!  Do you find the aromatics of Coco Chanel N°5 on the nose?  Made in the traditional method of Saignee, the color of this wine previews the flavors of coriander and pomegranate as it fills the mouth.  The classic Gamay spice and juicy acidity ease the finish into a surprising ending of vanilla cream soda.  

(2) 2015 Pinot Rose   $19.00/btl

~~ This rose takes all the characteristics of Pinot Noir and throws it into the backyard cooler for the summer.  A bright Rosé with ripe crisp strawberry & cranberry flavors and a hint of cinnamon red hots.  Fruit flavors of berry and watermelon dapple the tip of the tongue.  The balance of acid and sweetness is splendid on the finish and is well suited for sipping on the porch or pairing with a meal.

(3) 2015 Gamay Rose    $21.00/btl

~~ This wine opens with yellow peach, fresh ginger and honey dew on the nose. It unfolds with Meyer Lemon and peach preserve hinting at undertones of ginger spice, hibiscus and rhubarb. The lingering minerality along with with  notes of pineapple and grilled plantain lead to a clean soft texture on the finish. Pair with Dungeness Crab  or soft cheeses.

(4) 2014 Gamay Noir   $23.00/btl

~~ Our estate Gamay Noir represents the best of the Eola-Amity Hills growing conditions.  This grape varietal is most commonly associated with France – particularly Beaujolais.  The wine has tart cherry and wild strawberry fruit mingled with subtle white pepper and just the right amount of acidity.  A great alternative to pinot noir. 

(5) 2011 Jill Marie Pinot Noir   $25.00/btl

~~ Hints of cola and licorice permeate the nose straight away.  The texture is plush with the fruitiness of tart blackberries and pomegranate and a tinge of spiciness and dried herbs leading to some lively lingering tannins.  A perfect all-purpose food wine, but might I suggest slow cooked lamb shanks with coriander and fennel?

(6) 2011 Estate Cuvée Pinot Noir   $40.00/btl

~~ The pale magenta hue of this wine has the depth of a jewel.  Faint wisps of mandarin orange zest and forest fungi in clay loam confound the nose.  The mouth feel is initially svelte and velveteen like, with notes of anise.  The power builds with the intense complexity of toasted barrel in delicate harmony with the underlying femininity of the wine’s character.  It is Pinot Noir at the core of Eola-Amity Hills typisity.  Rewarding for those who cellar, but intensely gratifying to those who imbibe now.
