The Most Extraordinary Value in Pinot Noir: More Proof

Last week's Vinous annual Oregon Pinot report delivered more proof of we've been saying for years: Evesham Wood represents the most extraordinary value in Willamette Valley Pinot noir. That's not bold; it's a fact. Bold would be to say that Evesham Wood represents the most extraordinary value in Pinot noir worldwide. There, we said it.

The facts speak clearly: 30+ vintages, old vines, organic farming, single vineyard Pinots with 94s from multiple critics consistently, not a single wine over $55. While we love seeing the scores for Eveshameven more confirmation of what we've said for yearswe absolutely love drinking and selling the wines. We can't recommend highly enough: mix yourself a case or two and savor their extraordinary flavor and value!

Evesham Wood Cuvee J Pinot noir 2017
$49.45 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case order ($54.95 regular)

95 points Vinous: "Highly perfumed aromas of ripe red and dark fruits, incense and potpourri, along with an exotic spice nuance and a touch of smoky minerality. Palate-staining black raspberry, cherry and spicecake flavors show sharp delineation and deepen steadily as the wine stretches out. Smoothly plays richness off elegance and finishes impressively long and appealingly sweet, with sneaky, even tannins lending shape and grip."

Us: One of a literal handful of Oregon Pinots to buy every single vintage. The 2017 is unbelievably great.

$32.35 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case order ($35.95 regular)

94 points Vinous: "Vibrant red berry, cherry, blood orange and exotic spice aromas show excellent clarity and pick up a floral quality with aeration. Juicy raspberry, bitter cherry, allspice, vanilla and rose pastille flavors show an appealing blend of power and delicacy. Fine-grained tannins build slowly on the extremely long, lively finish, which emphatically repeats the floral and spice notes."

Also 94 points from PinotFile. Also Us: Oh this is just beautiful! Everything we love in Pinot. Soaring aromas, scrumptious red fruit, floral, and mineral elements weave together to wrap you up in a silky Pinot blanket.

$32.35 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case order ($35.95 regular)

94 points Vinous: "Pungent red berry, cherry and floral aromas show very good clarity, and succulent herb and earth nuances emerge with aeration. At once concentrated and lithe, offering red currant and bitter cherry flavors that take a spicy turn through the midpalate. Finishes very long and lively, with repeating floral character and sneaky tannins."

Also 94 points from PinotFile. Also Us: One of the Willamette Valley's most distinctive vineyards is also one of our clear favorites. An excellent wine which truly represents its origin.
