When Dr. Robert Pamplin, one of Oregon’s most forward-thinking philanthropists and businessmen, purchased the historic Chateau Benoit Winery in 1999, his vision was to create wines that reflected his passion for excellence. Known today as Anne Amie, this winery is located in Oregon’s Yamhill-Carlton District on the steep hillsides of the Chehalem Mountains, nestled in the verdant Willamette Valley. Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc form the heart of the winery which is complemented by old vine Estate Riesling and Müller Thurgau, planted in 1979.
This wine is made from 100% Pinot Noir from 3 estates: Anne Amie (30.9%), Twelve Oaks (44.6%), and Huntington Hill (24.5%). Clones used to make this wine include: P4, 115, Wadenswil, 114, 667, 777, 113, and 828. The grapes were hand-picked, sorted, destemmed and fermented in stainless steel. Afterwards, the wine was racked into a mixture of new and used French oak barrels, aged on the lees in barrel for 10 months, then blended, bottled and released. The result is a wine with a lovely translucent, garnet color and aromas of tart cherry, earth, and spice. On the palate, notes of cranberry, red cherry and baking spices are evident in this savory, medium-bodied, approachable red.
