Closing the night with Penner-Ash. Had this upon its release at the winery. It shows nice evolution...rounder, elegant with softer spice.

The body is ruby, ripe & full. The wine is brooding on the nose & palate. It’s a well extracted, sweeter version of burgundy. Ripe, ruby; dark cassis, blackberries, dark cherries, black plum, black raspberries, poached strawberries & hints of floral blueberries & raspberries. The spice is dark with a little heat, soft; clove, nutmeg & vanilla, mixed dark berry cola, black licorice, river stones, limestone, some crushed rocks, moist clay, dark, moist, turned earth, some fresh herbs & eucalyptus, pine tree sap, dark, melted chocolate with fresh & slightly candied; dark, red, blue flowers set in violets. The acidity is round and like a cool shower on a warm day. The long finish is ruby, ripe, well balanced, polished that falls into dark spices on the persistent long set.

Estate Grown Eola-Amity Hills Pinot Noir 2017

Super aromatic with floral and cherry aromas. Youthful, still primary flavors of cherry, raspberry, red currant, subtle mint, earthy,and mushrooms. It's good now but better in a year or two. — 15 days ago

Wow, this was...unique. Don’t have previous experience with this wine so I’m not sure of how true to form this was. One thing for sure...WHOLE CLUSTER. Lots of black pepper crusted rhubarb notes to where it was about spicy, almost like a light northern Rhône Syrah on the nose. The palate showed sage, herbal and oregano spices...chimichurri dipped cherries and even some olive? Not sure I’d be able to call this Pinot if served it blind. — 8 days ago

Justice Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015

Beautiful red and purple fruit on the nose. Strawberry jam and allspice glide seamlessly across the palate held together by perfectly balanced acidity and medium bodied tannins. This is Eola-Amity at it’s best - awesome fruit and winemaking on display here. Even better with a few more years in the cellar. 2015 vintage on Nov 18, 2019 — 23 days ago

Summum Seven Springs Vineyard Chardonnay 2016

From a wine dinner with Sashi Moorman. Balance, balance, balance! A bit more elegant in nature and slightly lighter on its feet. Stands up with ease to a 1er cru in burgundy. — 6 days ago

Cuvée Anne Eola-Amity Hills Chardonnay 2013

Accompanied Thanksgiving dinner. Might be one of the highest rated Chards I’ve ever tried. Enjoyed it. Well made. Matched well with our Bernaise sauce. We debated how to rate this given all the other wines served were red or dessert wines. Should be rated higher if served with other Chardonnay-appropriate dishes. — 14 days ago
