With the skill of our winemaking team and a love for Pinot Noir, our 2022 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.
Coming from all over the Willamette Valley, the grapes were harvested throughout October. The wine was fermented to dryness over 7-10 days with pump-overs to mix up the magic. The final wine was put down for a seven month slumber in stainless steel with a touch of oak influence.
2022 had a late start but made up for it by being our 2nd hottest summer on record! Grapes were chilling on the vine so long into October we thought we were going to have to make them Halloween costumes! But the weather stayed nice and dry till the end and we had gorgeous, gorgeous fruit to make gorgeous, gorgeous wines!
The Willamette Valley never fails to produce beautiful fruit flavors in its Pinot. This wine is packed with bright red fruit flavors, warm baking spices, and a hint of savory mushroom.
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!
