Cuvee J: Elite Status

Hello from Marcus,
When I'm asked to suggest a literal handful of Oregon Pinots to buy every vintage, Evesham Wood's Cuvee J is one of them. I've said it for years and I'll say it again: Cuvee J is among an elite list of Oregon Pinots. It deserves cult status. We are lucky that we don't have to fight for this wine...yet. Only 150 cases made - the most exquisite, age-worthy six barrels of the vintage from Evesham's organically farmed Le Puits Sec vineyard. 

Evesham Wood "Cuvee J" Pinot noir 2013
$44.95 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($49.95 regular    
I re-tasted this two weeks ago and it blew me away; I haven't been able to stop thinking about it. If you like big Pinots, this isn't the wine for you. If you like multidimensional, seductive, ethereal, age-worthy Pinot noir, you can do no better. The nexus between bright and dark, of cool and sweet. Beautiful right now, best when tucked away for 3-10 years. This is a "sleeper" wine in a sleeper vintage - the kind of wine where you'll kick yourself a few years from now for not buying more.
Last note: while I'd never refer to a $45 wine as inexpensive, Cuvee J is underpriced compared to its peers. Try finding another Oregon winery with 28 vintages and 30 year-old vines (organic too!), where their super-limited, top Pinot noir is under $50.
