Named for the wind that defines the EolaAmity Hills AVA, the Aeolian Pinot Noir is Bethel Heights’ vehicle to explore the dynamic evolving landscape that we farm. The sense of place and specificity that they value most highly in their wines takes many years to evolve. With the oldest vines they allow each block to speak for itself in a separate bottling. The second generation vines at Bethel Heights, on the other hand, are just beginning to find their voice. In these years in between, the Aeolian allows us the freedom to dream of what lies beyond the horizon.
This is the youngest and highest section of the vineyard, planted in 2002 on volcanic clay soils. The nose has a fresh and sweetly perfumed edge with red apples, red cherries and stones, as well as a crushed-rose note. The palate has a succinct delivery of sturdy, chiseled tannin and plenty of ripe, dark-cherry and berry flavor. Drink or hold.
