“Fragrant red cherries and strawberries here with a sappy and gently herbal edge. The freshness really appeals. There’s a very focused, strawberry and cherry-flavored palate with lithe, juicy tannins delivered in attractive style.”-JS
“Ripe fruit, acid, approachability, and satisfaction all come together in the 2017 Evolution Pinot Noir. This wine exhibits aromas and flavors of bright red and jammy fruit characteristics, pie cherry and a hint of toasty oak. In the nose, this food friendly Pinot Noir expresses notes of chocolate covered cherries, rose petal, and a hint of baking spice. The mouthfeel is round and rich at first sip with some good tannins which soften with acidity in its long finish. Pairs wonderfully with wood-fire pizza or Thanksgiving roasted turkey.”-Winemaker’s Notes
“For 47 years – even before there was an Oregon wine industry – the Sokol Blosser family has been perfecting Pinot Noir. Since founders Susan Sokol Blosser and Bill Blosser planted their first vines in 1971, the family has pursued winemaking excellence through environmentally friendly techniques. Today, situated on a certified organic 85-acre property in the Dundee Hills appellation, and farming another 43 acres of vineyards in Dundee Hills and Eola-Amity Hills, B Corp-certified Sokol Blosser remains committed to a sustainable approach. This respect for nature has consistently captured the terroir of the region, showcasing its essence through the brilliance of its estate fruit.
Now with the second generation of Sokol Blossers at the helm, the winery is poised to enter a new millennium of winemaking and sustainability under the guidance of CEO and Co-President Alison Sokol Blosser, along with winemaker and Co-President Alex Sokol Blosser. As the new generation continues the legacy of Sokol Blosser’s founders, the focus remains on crafting exemplary wines through sustainable methods. It’s no mere coincidence that such practices have had the happy consequence of enhancing the excellence of Sokol Blosser’s Pinot Noir. In addition to the official recognition received for its environmental practices, Sokol Blosser has consistently won recognition for its quality wines. Being good to the earth – farming, buying and building through the lens of sustainability – is really about paying attention to and respecting the details. There is no other way to make great Pinot.”-Winery Notes
