Eyrie Vineyards 'Outcrop Vyd' Pinot Noir 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

94 Points, The Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Pinot Noir Outcrop comes from vines located higher than the Sisters Vineyard, on a tier of basalt that juts out of the hill. It has a wonderful and very expressive bouquet of blackberry, minerals, sandalwood and cloves that is beautifully defined. The palate is medium-bodied with edgy tannin right from the start. This is a little masculine at the moment, clamming in toward the tertiary finish with a long, persistent, marine-influenced aftertaste of Japanese nori coming through. Superb.”

Three years later, again in Paris, and the following year in Beaune, The Eyrie Vineyards 1975 Pinot noir brought international attention to Oregon, a wine region unfamiliar to almost anyone except a handful of hardy pioneers. With these two tastings, Oregon won its first recognition as the New World home for Pinot noir. Read less
