2018 Salem Wine Company Pinot Noir Eola-Amity Hills, Oregon, USA
The 2017 Pinot Noir from Salem Wine Company is produced from sustainable grapes biodynamically farmed in the volcanic soil of the Eola-Amity Hills, using only indigenous fermentation. It is therefore a pure representation of the vinicultural ecosystem of this lush wine-making region. With its lively nose, its fruit forward, funky palate of red raspberry, strawberry, black tea, and mushroom, its classic Pinot Noir structure, and its tart acidity, it is an essential for fans of this varietal. Incredibly versatile in pairing also, sitting just as comfortably alongside grilled salmon as Boeuf Bourguignon.
