Tasting Notes: The Brooks Eola-Amity Hills is a fresh, approachable, fruit-driven Pinot Noir with red fruit notes (red currant, raspberry, red apple skin) and hints of brown sugar and cinnamon.

2021 Vintage: Rain events at the beginning of bloom diminished yields, and a dry summer was punctuated with unprecedented heatwaves. The timing worked in Brooks favor since the heat happened pre-veraison, and the vines handled it well. Harvest started in early September, but lower temperatures across the state allowed for a long and measured harvest season, with harvest extending into mid-October. No disease, high sugars, balanced acids, and great flavors. 2021 will undoubtedly rank as one of the top Oregon vintages.
