The Aberrant 2011 ‘Virtus Ex’ Pinot Noir is Eric Eide’s first AVA-designated wine, representing the Eola-Amity Hills of Oregon’s Willamette Valley. The Latin name ‘Virus Ex,’ which roughly translates to strength or virtue, represents the powerful yet elegant nature of the Pinots produced in this region. Light bright red in color, the 2011 Virtus Ex Pinot Noir opens with aromas of sweet oak, red currant, sandalwood, dried red fruits, and allspice. The wine is silky and broad on the palate with flavors of raspberry, cherry compote, fresh herbs, and a touch of licorice. It’s beautifully structured and shows textural richness while embracing a nice brightness and energy. Soft tannins linger on the finish.
