    Winemaker's Notes:

    All grapes for this wine came from our own vineyards in the Dundee Hills. This is our "young vine" cuvée, with vines averaging 26 years. Eyrie's attentive vineyard practices focus on picking at just the right time in order to capture optimal Pinot flavor. The wine was then aged in mostly neutral French oak for 16 months, resulting in a wine that accurately expresses Pinot Noir's inherent varietal characteristics. The deep, rich scents and flavors are enhanced by a long finish. It is a wine that pairs exceptionally well with food.

    Pair with venison chops with blackberry compote, salmon with bacon & lentils.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Bright red. Complex, perfumed scents of raspberry, cola, Indian spice and minerals, with a suave floral quality contributing to the impression of clarity. Juicy and precise, offering sappy red fruit and floral pastille flavors and notes of black cardamom and anise. Finishes smooth and sweet, with lingering floral and spice notes and excellent length. This will age over at least the medium term on its balance.

    In this light and airy Pinot, the seductive raspberry and strawberry fruit floats easily over a soft bed of ripe tannins, lasting into a delicate finish. Drink now through 2017. 2,200 cases made.

    Blended from four estate vineyards, this new release actually trums the much-lauded 2008. Aromatics are lovely, a beguiling mix of rose petals, raspberries, earth and herb. The wine has finesse, fine acidity, tension and length. Fine for drinking now, but cellarable for the next decade.
