With the skill of our winemaking team and a love for Pinot Noir, our 2020 Evolution Pinot Noir is so delicious that it will knock your socks off, literally. We sought out to evolve Pinot Noir to make it the anytime wine. It’s the wine for the imaginative food lover. Evolution Pinot Noir celebrates the any-food occasion. Dangerously juicy and fruit-driven with a sophisticated silk. This bottle of Pinot makes enjoying a young Pinot Noir wine so easy to drink and share.
The grapes for this wine hailed from several vineyard sources around the Willamette Valley, including some of our estate fruit. The grapes were fermented to dryness, the wine was pressed off the skins, and finally put down for a seven month slumber in stainless steel with a touch of oak influence.
The Willamette Valley started off the growing season with a cool, wet spring. Summer came through with ease and but insane wildfires brought harvest to a halt! Thankfully a massive rainstorm saved the day and we wrapped up the 2020 season with optimism!
The Willamette Valley never fails to produce beautifully fruit flavors in its Pinot. This wine is packed with bright red fruit flavors, heaps of jammyness, a dash of cherry pie, and a hint of toasty oak on the finish.
A foodies delight, this wine pairs with darn near everything! Pumpkin chipotle soup, glazed pork chops, wild mushroom risotto, even a decadent dark chocolate torte!
