The Eyrie Vineyards 2012 Original Vines Estate Pinot Noir (Dundee Hills)

  • Editors' Choice
  • Online Exclusive
  1. $85

Separate from the other Original Vines bottling, this is part of the new single-vineyard series, and includes the famed South Block grapes. Lush and fragrant, full-bodied yet in the classic, elegant Eyrie tradition, this bursts with complexity. Bramble, cherries, strawberry preserves, coffee grounds and a hint of root beer come together in a deep, dense and…

The Eyrie Vineyards 2012 Original Vines Reserve Chardonnay (Dundee Hills)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $45

Sourced from the original 1965 planting, this wine demands your patience and full attention. A deep straw, slightly tawny hue, it opens with lightly spicy, nuanced threads of mint, hay, olive oil, green banana and almond. It seems almost ephemeral, but with some hours of breathing time it opens into a full-bodied, dense and compelling wine with the extra dimensions…

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 2012 Outcrop Estate Pinot Noir (Dundee Hills)

  • Cellar Selection
  • Online Exclusive
  1. $55

This vineyard, first planted in 1982, was recently acquired by Jason Lett. A steely, earthy core provides the spine, wrapped in tart red currant fruit. Firm and focused, it’s a multi-dimensional effort that still shows well after being open for three full days. Berries, smoke, dark chocolate, a whiff of curry and a saline finish are all in play.

Fine-tuning a legacy, second-generation winemaker Jason Lett’s wines are clean, elegant, poised and balanced. This is textbook Pinot Noir, with just-ripe raspberry and cherry fruit, vivid acidity, savory herb, and a foundation of clay and clean earth. Drink now–2024.
