Eyrie Chardonnays are built to age. Eyrie's contribution to Oregon Chardonnay cannot be overstated. From my perspective, the Oregon Chard boom was largely spurred by Eyrie's revelatory 30-year vertical tasting of their Chardonnays (which I was very fortunate to attend). A complex and youthfully fascinating wine today, the real pleasure comes with age. - Marcus
93 points Wine Advocate: "A barrel selection (from grapes in Eyrie's original vineyard, planted in 1965), the 2016 Chardonnay Original Vines has a wonderful perfume of chamomile and orange blossoms with notes of honey, hay and dried leaves. Medium to full-bodied and creamy textured, it offers up lovely honey, white flowers and soft lemon citrus flavors in the mouth with tangy, juicy acidity, finishing very long and layered with a streak of crushed rock minerality and a touch of phenolic texture. 150 cases produced."
