    Winemaker's Notes:

    Aromas of ripe raspberry and strawberry with underlying notes of stonefruit, cedar, and rose petals. The palate is pure raspberries and Royal Anne cherries with orange zest and just a flicker of oak spice in the background. This wine is balanced by a bright and balancing core of acidity and fine grain tannins that will help this wine age gracefully over the next decade.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Bright red. Raspberry, potpourri and anise on the fragrant nose. Juicy, seamless and appealingly sweet, with good energy to its red fruit and floral pastille flavors. Closes with good energy and cut, leaving rose and red berry notes behind. This wine delivers a lot of fruity crowd appeal.

    Although sourced entirely from their immediate Eola-Amity Hills neighborhood, Bethel Height’s basic 2010 Pinot Noir is solely appellated “Willamette Valley.” As it’s designed from the beginning to be fruit-forward and refreshing, this gets 5-6 days of cold soak (whereas the typical Bethel Heights Pinot gets 3-4) and is yeasted specifically for low-temperature fermentation. Bright, sappy, fresh red berries are tinged with tamarind, clove, and vanilla on a vivacious palate, leading to a sustained and, as intended, refreshing finish.
