All of Anne Amie wines are estate grown and the winery holds 3 sustainability certifications in Oregon. Designed to be fruit forward, with a minimal amount of aging in new wood, this fits the bill. The fruit is a juicy mix of pomegranate, tart red berries and sour cherry. There’s a peppery lift and plenty of acidity, but the overall balance and focus are spot on. Just when you think it’s a fairly simple wine, it kicks in another gear and finishes with unexpected length and depth and a flash of chocolate.
