2012 vintage notes

What an absolute gem of a Pinot! Brigadoon has delivered another rocking value. Cinnamon laced black cherries open, leading to a mouthful of flavors that reminds us of cherry cobbler and a hint of Christmas spice. Only 165 cases made.

This is the third vintage of Brigadoon Lylee. Matt Shown is a youngish winemaker who knows his vineyard well -- his boyhood home is right in the middle of it. Brigadoon is a true family winery and they are estate grown, sustainably farmed, and modestly priced.

Brigadoon Wine Co. is a a newish winery making great juice from its own six acre vineyard in the south end of the Willamette Valley. The combination of the southern valley’s hotter days and the vineyard elevation’s colder nights both ripen the fruit and stress the vines, resulting in complex and balance. 

Brigadoon is a family winery, with Chris Shown managing the vineyard, Sheree Shown assisting their son Matt in making the wines, and son Nick working with the farm’s timber and developing the winery’s “farm to table” products.

Chris grew up in vineyards. His first job in 1970 was working for his father planting the Rutherford Vineyard in Napa Valley. When he moved to Oregon, he brought his deep knowledge of grape growing to the South Willamette, where he meticulously farms his six acres. A strong believer in hands on sustainable agriculture, Chris not only manages Brigadoon Vineyards, but is also the primary caretaker of the vines and land. In addition, he manages other small vineyards in the Southern Willamette Valley.

Chris's son Matt makes the family wines. He is known for his tasty good value Pinot, called "Lylee" and his higher end Eola Amity and Taproot Pinot noirs and a Pinot blanc.

The Lylee name comes from a combination of Chris Lyle Shown and Sheree Lee Shown’s names. The Lylee Pinot noir is their ready to drink wine that they describe as “complementing our daily lives.”
