Evolution Pinot Noir Sokol Blosser, Organic, supple, ripe, elegant Pinot Noir from Oregon. The Pinot Noir thrives at Sokol Blosser and the exceptional red (volcanic) jory soils of the Dundee Hills provide a good home. The vines range up to 30 years old and careful hand-sorting of fruit ensures that only perfectly ripe fruit makes it to the fermentation stage. Winemaker Alex Sokol Blosser uses an original technique for producing full-flavoured wines allowing for a post-fermentation soak of up to three weeks resulting in soft, supple tannins and a more complex wine. The wine is then aged in French oak barrels for approximately sixteen months followed by a further year in bottle. Aromas and flavours of black cherry, liquorice and mocha, smooth and supple, long and elegant.

Bill and Susan Sokol Blosser planted their first vines in 1971 in the Dundee Hills as part of a hippie dream.

Back then there was no Oregon wine industry, driven by a passion for quality Pinot Noir, which they knew would thrive in the climate. Now Dundee, in the heart of the Willamette Valley, is the epicentre of Oregon Pinot Noir. Sokol Blosser estate vineyards are farmed organically and the wines made naturally. Local organic straw, organic cow and horse manure, grape pomace from the crush and organic rock phosphate contribute to the composting. The insect population is kept in check by a resident flock of bluebirds! As well as that, they are leaders in sustainable business practice, using renewable energy and biofuel on the estate. The Evolution Range was born out of niche for quality blends. Producing a proprietary blend like Evolution is a combination of art and science. People always joke around, asking whether it was created on purpose or if they just blended leftovers and it happened to work, which is why "Luck VS Intention" features heavily on the label.

    Too many of the New World Pinot Noirs are overripe and lacking in complexity. Not so here. Well made, enjoyable.
