Outrageously Good: Evesham Wood 2015s

We recommend Evesham Wood Pinot noirs in every vintage -- it is one of our favorite wineries in the world and one that delivers exceptional value. So we are especially excited by the new, fantastic reviews for Evesham Wood's 2015s, entirely deserved if you ask us.

The Prince of Pinot in his newsletter, PinotFile, praised Evesham with great scores (including a 96!) and this statement:  "I found the Evesham Wood wines in this vintage to be outrageously goodand can be enjoyed both now and in time after cellaring." We've followed and respected The Prince's newsletter for many years; he tastes a ton of domestic Pinot noir, knows his stuff, and writes excellent notes. We concur that Evesham's 2015s are outrageously good -- get them!

Evesham Wood Mahonia Vineyard Pinot noir 2015
$32.35 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($35.95 regular) 
96 points PinotFile: "Oh, my God!" aromas of fresh cherry, exotic spices including clove and allspice, fertile earth and a hint of gingerbread. The flat-out delicious red cherry core is in sync with a lovely Wassail spice accent. Seamlessly composed in a mid weight style, with welcome vibrancy and a lasting echo of scent and fruit on the finish. I especially liked this wine for its uniqueness. A wine-gasm that is a must for Pinot lovers." 

Evesham Wood Sojourner Vineyard Pinot noir 2015
$32.35 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($35.95 regular) 
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." 

Evesham Wood Temperance Hill Vineyard Pinot noir 2015
$32.35 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($35.95 regular) 
94 points PinotFile: "Reserved, but pleasant aromas of red cherry and red berry, spice and mulch. Light to mid weight in style featuring juicy red cherry and berry flavors with a hint of spice and tobacco. Dreamy balance, with gentle tannins and a quenching finish. Rather elegant and balletic, but highly flavorful, with understated Pinot extravagance."
The Prince also gave major praise to Evesham's brother-winery, Haden Fig:

Haden Fig Willamette Valley Chardonnay 2016
$19.75 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order
($21.95 regular) 
93 points PinotFile: "Captivating steely, stony, flinty aromas matched to fruit aromas of citrus, white peach and pear. Highly mineral-driven, with flavors of lemon-lime, pear and green apple offering a toned and trim impression, finishing with a quenching, steely attitude. A slight bit of tannin adds structure and the slightly creamy mouthfeel adds comfort. Remarkable poise and immense charm."  

Haden Fig Juliette Chardonnay 2015
$35.95 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($39.95 regular) 
94 points PinotFile: "Others say 'best' or 'reserve,' but Erin says 'Juliette.' A selection of the best barrels of Chardonnay destined for the normal bottling that came from Mahonia Vineyard. Extended lees aging without stirring. This is the Puligny to complement Le Puit Sec's Chassagne. The nose is stony, flinty and buttery all at once. Seductive flavors of citrus, pear and kiwi with a mineral laden character. Crisp and refreshing, with defining acidity the slightest tannins and an inspired finish of uncommon length. A special wine that demonstrates why people are saying that world class Chardonnay is Oregon's next big thing."
