Bright cherry with a bit of wood and earth. Perfect for grilled salmon night.

On this Saturday night I have opened the 2012 Bethel Heights Vineyard Estate Pinot Noir from Eola-Amity Hills Salem, Oregon.

On the nose there is cherry, black raspberry, plum, funk, vanilla, white pepper, light oak and dry earth.

On the palate there is tart cherry, raspberry, cranberry, clove, baking spice, minerality and damp earth.

This wine is medium bodied that has good complexity with medium acidity and medium fine tannins that moves seamlessly into a medium to long fresh fruit finish. Please have a wonderful safe and healthy Memorial Day weekend. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Decanter. A bit of reduction and wood spice which is well-handled gives this otherwise dark and freshly fruited Pinot some complexity and intrigue. Good acidity though rich, this is powerful and very young.

It is Saturday night and it is raining outside. What better way to enjoy a rainy night then opening up a Willamette Valley Pinot Noir. I have opened the 2013 Bethel Heights Estate Pinot Noir to enjoy while watching some hockey.

Upon opening, fresh red fruit is ever present with cherry, strawberry, cranberry, vanilla, roe petal, mushroom and light earth.

The first sip is mineral driven with good red fruit, cherry, cranberry, raspberry, pomegranate, mushroom and a nice earthy forest soil.

This wine is well balanced with a medium body mouth feel, medium to + acidity, medium smooth rounded tannins and a fresh vibrant medium long finish. Continue having a great weekend and be safe. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Notes of Cherry Cola, flowers and muted baking and peppery spices. Smooth body and texture. Flavors of cherries and pomegranate. Great balance and beautiful acidity.

Nice wine. Bright Ruby color. Silky, hints of cola & vanilla with air. It worked with Thanksgiving dinner with its bitter cherry & spice. Snap of acidity that gave it a tang. Became sweeter on finish by fined-grained tannins
