95 points Vinous: "An expansive, finely etched bouquet evokes fresh red and blue fruits, incense, potpourri and exotic spices, along with suggestions of cola and smoky minerals. At once concentrated and graceful in style, offering juicy, intense raspberry, cherry, boysenberry, floral pastille and spicecake flavors. The berry and floral qualities carry strongly through a strikingly long, sweet, subtly tannic finish that leaves building mineral and spice notes behind, eventually."
2015 vintage notes
94 points Vinous, Josh Raynolds: "A complex, highly perfumed bouquet evokes fresh red and dark berries, Asian spices and incense, and a hint of candied flowers emerges with aeration. Concentrated raspberry preserve, cherry cola and spicecake flavors show excellent clarity and stretch out and become sweeter and deeper on the back half. Shows outstanding clarity and spicy thrust on the impressively persistent finish, which is shaped by smooth, harmonious tannins that fold quickly into the juicy, lingering fruit."
A beautiful vintage of Evelyn's, epitomizing Brick House's Pinot noir house style of classy finesse. Deep, super-inviting aromas lead to layers of silky fruit. A showstopper already -- I've tasted two bottles this week alone! -- and with more than enough goods to age 8-10 years. - Marcus
A best of the best blend, made only in the finest vintages, Evelyn's is named in honor of Doug's mother.
