Love the floral, tropical nose here. Yes it’s off-dry but plenty of tension to keep things lively. Very good Indian or Thai food wine. Strong QPR Costco #oregon white blend. — 3 months ago
The palate confirms the nose with mineral and citrusy aromas of limes, pears and green apples. Well-balanced acidity. 12.8% ABV. A very refreshing chardonnay from the Eola-Amity Hills in Willamette Valley, Oregon, USA.
The pioneers used the name Eola as a reference to the aeolian harp. A wind instrument named after Aeolus, the Greek god of the wind. The gap in this area of the Willamette Valley ushers in howling winds from the Pacific Ocean which are then trapped in the Coastal Range. Cheers!

Slightly cloudy appearance, dull not bright. Discovered tiny pieces of solid matter in the glass so seems unfined and unfiltered. Definitely better uncorked than Coravinned, needs to breath a little. With Coravin there’s some reductive notes and vegetable notes. Medium(-) aromas that remind me of stems and fermentation (tank sample) definitely som stems in the ferment. Warm alcohol on the nose and on the palate. Still, good balance between the intensity and the richness of ripe red fruit and the acidity. A little too much alcohol sensation for me. #eolaamityhills #oregon #oregonwine #pinotnoir — 2 years ago
#leftcoastcellars delivers Scrumptious and full flavored for #pinotnoirs. “Slurpable” as described by @Nicolette Hill! Loaded with red fruit flavor cherry 🍒 and raspberries; great with any meal. #willamette #willamettevalley #oregon #oregonwines #latitude45 #dijonclone we enjoyed this so very much! — 3 years ago
I feel tired of these matchstick, reductive #chardonnay yes, we know, you can leave solids from the press...yes we know you can make this style of wine, but for me it’s a bit of a one pony trick show. Lacking body, lacking finish lacking acidity. #oregon #eolaamityhills — 2 years ago
Such strength from a #pinotrocks truely #oregon in color and structure. Light caramel and chocolate wafers entrance my smell perception and then they are supported by lovely acidity and a long finish. Excellent. Tasted it side by side with Domaine Drouhin Dundee Hills and I much preferred this to that — 4 years ago
