Eola-Amity Hills AVA, Willamette Valley, OR
What we love
Founded in 1977 and managed by second generation winemaker Ben Casteel. Gnarly old vines, geologically complex hillside soils, and direct impact from howling winds all conspire to create highly energized wines. Medium-bodied with a lovely creamy texture, it fills the mouth with apple pie, yellow citrus fruits, peaches, mangoes, and accents of pretty barrel toast. Rich yet balanced, this wine stands up nicely to wines that cost three times as much.
