Tonight I decided to open a good bottle, in celebration of… Well, maybe we should celebrate the cooler weather!
The Anne Amie Vineyards 2011 Marilyn Brut Rosé comes from the Twelve Oaks Estate vineyard located in the Chehalem Mountains AVA. The Marilyn sparkling wine contains 100% Pinot Noir.
The wine has aromas of raspberry and flint, and on the palate opens up to flavors of strawberry and tart lime. Tiny, delicate bubbles add some additional interest.
Jon and I first had this wine when we were down in the Willamette Valley for Valentine’s Day at Bubbles Fest, a sparkling wine event sponsored by Anne Amie. With 11 different Oregon sparkling wine producers, chocolate, hazelnuts and oysters, this festival did not disappoint. And neither does this wine!
