Asilda Pinot Noir is handcrafted from the grapes of the Yamhill-
This well balanced wine is less acidic than wines from other AVA's and contains fruity notes variously described as blackberry, cherry, espresso and dark chocolate. The scents from the wine include rose, violet, lavender and an underlying earthiness.
The wine cellars well and reaches maximum flavor in 3 to 5 years. It is however, quite drinkable after two years in the cellar. The wine has enough body to wonderfully pair with red meats, salmon and pastas.
Asilda wine is made by fully extracting the grapes to achieve maximum intensity of flavors. In that sense, it has more body and intensity than classical burgundies and is described by the owners as a wine that will even appeal to cabernet drinkers.
