Eyrie Vineyards Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley, Oregon 2017
From the Distributor: All grapes for this wine came from a combination of own vineyards in the Dundee Hills and some purchased fruit. Even though this is our "young vine" cuvée, the vines average 32 years. Eyrie’s attentive vineyard practices focus on rigorous training of the vines and on picking at just the right time in order to capture optimal Pinot flavor. This is a bright red beauty with a subtle smokey aroma and deep, complex fruit notes. Taut and focused on the palate, a hint of red berry reminiscent of fresh strawberry jam is complicated with a lovely underlying spiciness and earth.
Grapes: Pinot Noir
Farming Practices: No till, organic
