    Winemaker's Notes:

    Deeply-ruby-colored, like all of our 2008 wines, and darkly-fruited like all of our 2008 wines, the bouquet of Eileen Vineyard is distinguished by aromas of mint, black licorice and chervil. The wine is savory on the palate, more than fruity, with a gorgeous and mouthwatering texture. It's very easy to say that this wine will evolve in a positive direction for many years.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Dark and spicy, with a pepper and dried apricot edge to the rich black currant and huckleberry flavors, gliding smoothly through a long and expressive finish. Drink now through 2018. 659 cases made.

    The 2008 Pinot Noir Eileen Vineyard sports a super-fragrant perfume of earth notes, mineral, underbrush, spice box, black cherry, and black raspberry that jumps from the glass. Dense and layered on the palate, this plush, smooth-textured Pinot has the structure and balance to evolve for 3-4 years. Its drinking window will extend from 2013 to 2023.
