The Eyrie Vineyards 2012 Original Vines Pinot Gris (Dundee Hills)

  • Editors' Choice
  • Online Exclusive
  1. $33

These “Original Vines” are in fact the oldest Pinot Gris vines in the country. They deliver exquisite details of earth and stone around a solid core of apple and Asian pear. It’s bone dry, with exceptional depth.

The Eyrie Vineyards 2000 Marguerite Pinot Noir (Dundee Hills)

  1. $85

This exceptional wine was made by the late David Lett to celebrate the birth of his granddaughter. It’s drinking beautifully, and has the color and scent of a mature wine, though Eyrie Pinots can often live longer than those who bet against them. Delicate and subtle, it nonetheless shows surpassing power and length. Mature, fully-evolved dried fruit and herb…

The Eyrie Vineyards 2007 Reserve Pinot Noir (Dundee Hills)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $62

The Eyrie reserve is a single vineyard selection from the estate’s oldest vines, planted between 1967 and 1973. The longevity of these wines is a proven fact; they evolve (and generally improve) for decades. This is already delicious, smoky, almost ethereal, with truly Burgundian finesse and depth. This wine, as much or more than any other, expresses the potential…

The Eyrie Vineyards 2011 Original Vines Reserve Pinot Noir (Dundee Hills)

  • Cellar Selection
  • Online Exclusive
  1. $70

When first opened this wine was stubbornly unyielding, but with some coaxing (and many hours) it began to unfold. Its mix of rhubarb, tart berry, a whiff of stem and bright, pineapple acidity. As with old-school Eyrie, you may expect it to age for decades.

Savory and deep, it carries lovely details of earth and herb, balanced against flavors of lightly spiced apples. As with all the Eyrie wines from this outstanding vintage, it’s unique, compelling and utterly original.

The Eyrie Vineyards 2010 Original Vines Reserve Pinot Noir (Dundee Hills)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $60

Though generally tight and backward upon release, Eyrie Pinots have an astonishing track record for ageability. This beautifully-defined effort should be no exception. Beet root, cranberry and dusty spices are hung on a crystal frame. Tasted blind, it might pass for a very fine young Barbaresco.
