Winemaker's Notes:

Eyrie's Pinot Noir combines elegant structure and depth with the Pinot Noir flavors that typify the Eyrie style.

Eyrie's Pinot Noir is subject to minimal intervention in both the vineyard and vinification. Restrained use of oak and spontaneous malolactic fermentation contributed to this wines balance and varietal expression.

My Notes:

About Eyrie:

The Eyrie Vineyards (eye-ree) was established by David and Diana Lett in 1966. Yamhill County's pioneer vineyard produced the Willamette Valley's first Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, and the first Pinot Gris in America. The vineyards are located in the Dundee Hills, the winery in nearby McMinnville.
