Our Kind of Library: Evesham Wood 2015s

This isn't the kind of library with many leather-bound books. It's our kind of library—one with shelves of Pinot from our favorite Oregon winery, from two of the greatest Willamette Valley vineyards, cellared at the winery and beginning to enter their prime drinking zone. It's an Evesham Wood 2015 library offer featuring the first ever Sojeau Vineyard and the estate Le Puits Sec, with a Burghound review to rival Grand Cru Burgs. We've sampled both recently and love how they are opening up. Whether you missed them back in 2017 or drank all your 2015s years ago, don't miss them now—they are excellent values in perfectly-aged Pinot noir.

Evesham's first Sojeau Vineyard, back when it was called Sojourner. A customer favorite ever since. Tasted recently, it is singing with all of the energy that this high-elevation Eola-Amity Hills site generates.

94 points PinotFile: "Earth bound aromas lead to a bold wine with serious intentions. The sappy, mid-weight flavors of black cherry, black raspberry, plum and spice attack the palate with a vengeance causing the taste buds to beg for mercy. The luscious fruit is tempered by a firm tannic backbone and the wine is well-mannered despite its fruit load. An Energizer bunny finish that goes on and on. This wine will do a tap dance on your palate and is highly unique among the wines in the Evesham Wood lineup."

We've had five (yes, 5) of these recently and they are entering their "strutting" phase. We love the fruit quality to the 2015 Le Puits Sec—the whole wine represents Pinot noir's subtle power.

93 points Burghound: "A more restrained nose features notes of briar, red and dark berries along with whiffs of Asian-style tea and orange peel. There is once again good vibrancy to the beautifully delineated and somewhat denser medium weight flavors that possess good power that really comes up on the notably more structured, powerful and longer finish. As is usually the case with this wine, it is robust and bold yet not really rustic. I would again point out that it’s hard to find comparable quality at the price point."
