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…  — P.G.  (7/1/2013)

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…  — P.G.  (8/1/2011)

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.  — P.G.  (7/1/2013)

The Eyrie Vineyards 2011 Original Vines Pinot Gris (Dundee Hills)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $22
Unique in style and sourced—these are the oldest Pinot Gris vines in the country—this young, yeasty, textural wine will surely continue to improve in the bottle. Give it a lot of breathing time, and complex layers of rock and fruit unfold. Jicama, cucumber, daikon radish...You get the idea. It tastes as clean and fresh as a mountain spring.  — P.G.  (7/1/2013)

The Eyrie Vineyards 2004 Reserve Pinot Noir (Dundee Hills)

  1. $58
A splendid bottle, lucid, refined, a gorgeous evocation of the grape with delicate cherry/cranberry fruit, hints of pepper and spice, and the gravitas that comes with grapes from 40-year-old vines.  — P.G.  (12/15/2009)

The Eyrie Vineyards 2009 Reserve Chardonnay (Dundee Hills)

  • Cellar Selection
  • Online Exclusive
  1. $47
The label includes the words “Original Vines” written along the side, a nod to the history of this limited reserve, gleaned from vines planted by founder David Lett in 1965. It’s steely and sharp edged, with sculpted fruit and limited use of new oak. Cellarworthy and distinctive, this wine rewards your attention and patience with unexpected layers of detail.  — P.G.  (8/1/2011)
