Elegant and complex aromas of bing cherries, cranberries, red currants, raspberries and strawberries, a combination of wild flowers and fresh forest berries that epitomize Oregon Pinot Noir. The juicy red fruit flavors open the attack then evolve in the mouth to darker fruit flavors with spice and mineral overtones. The wine shows ripe tannins and a succulent texture that give definition and lift to the surprisingly long finish. Although the 2010 A to Z Pinot Noir is drinking well now, it has the focus, balance and intensity to age and will become more complex over the next 5-10 years.
Wine & Spirits
In the beginning…there weren’t a whole lot of choices for a really great white blend. Then, through a stroke of luck and/or great intention, nine wine varietals, Pinot Gris among them, came together and really liked each other. Together, they produced a wine that was delightful, sublime and just plain yummy. And we called this wine Evolution. Wine lovers loved it. They paired it with spicy Asian, Indian, Mexican and Caribbean foods. Or with a jambalaya. Word spread. And, soon, Evolution White was advancing the entire wine universe one bottle at a time.
Wine & Spirits
From Stephen Tanzer’s Intenrational Wine Cellar: “Deep red. Red and darker berries on the nose. Pliant black raspberry and cherry flavors are brightened by a zesty mineral quality and betray no rough edges. Extremely easy to drink, with very good sweet persistence.”
Toasted wood and vanilla provide the back notes to a complex nose of black cherry and plum with hints of peppercorn. Lush, dark fruit on the palate with nuances of baking spice, clove and leather lead to a long finish of sweet vanilla with fine, balanced tannins.
From an evolutionary blend of pinot gris, muller-thurgau, semillon and six other white grapes, this light and zippy white is ready to drink now and very easy to understand and enjoy. Loaded with delicious flavors of peach, spice and vanilla, this has something in it for everyone–literally!
Exhibits aromas of plum, blueberry and raspberry. The palate is filled with sweet raspberry and cherry fruits with warm cocoa tones. This wines brightness and fine tannins come together in a fruit laden finish.
“Scents of earth give way to a lean set of palate flavors, the texture surprisingly nimble and bright. This wine’s tannins are forceful at the moment, needing a bit of time in the cellar to integrate with the fruit.”
