Most of the Willamette Valley's best Pinot noir values come and go; they are strong in some vintages, less so in others. Not this.
The original, the unparalleled, the most consistent value in Willamette Valley Pinot noir is back, doing what it has always done: introducing us to a new vintage (2021!) and setting the bar by which other wines of the vintage will be measured. This is just one of Evesham Wood founder Russ Rainey's legacies, a tradition stewarded by winemaker/owner Erin Nuccio.
Honest and authentic, this is delicious Pinot noir grown and made the right way.
Evesham Wood Willamette Valley Pinot noir 2021
$22.95 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case order ($24.95 regular)
2021 gave us a bounty of flavor and no shyness in showing it. Immediately enjoyable and forward in its fruit, you'll find it is equally elegantly refined, balanced, and fresh. We savored a bottle over four days and found it brilliant to the last sip.
A note about supply: due to several circumstances, the 2021 Evesham Willamette Valley Pinot will sell out more quickly than any single vintage in well over a decade. Hot weather may prevent us from shipping right now but it should not deter you from ordering right now. There is a very limited window for access to this one-of-a-kind treasure. Do not let that window close without you securing cases for your enjoyment over the coming year—remember the next vintage (2022) will not be released for a long while.
When you enjoy your next bottle of Evesham Wood, please raise a glass to Russ Rainey, Evesham's founder who passed away July 9. It is impossible to measure Russ' impact on Willamette Valley wine, from his collaborative work to establish the Eola-Amity Hills AVA and the Deep Roots Coalition to his inspiration and mentorship of more than a generation of winemakers and winelovers. Including us.
Thank you, Russ.
