Winemaker Notes

A barrel selection of equal parts Dijon and Pommard clones, “Evelyn’s” represents the finest wine our estate vineyard has to offer. Named in honor of the winemaker’s mother, we bottle “Evelyn’s” Pinot Noir only when season and the vineyard combine to produce exceptional quality. Like all Brick House wines, the cuvées that comprise the “Evelyn’s” bottlings ferment with native yeasts. The wine is raised on its gross lees in barrel for a minimum of 16 months before being bottled by hand on the farm. Typically, “Evelyn’s” Pinot Noir is designed with long term cellaring in mind, often with somewhat elevated tannin structures from both whole cluster fermentation and a larger percentage of new French oak than our other wines.

Wine Enthusiast
This barrel selection is a 50-50 blend of Pommard and Dijon clone Pinot Noir, all biodynamically farmed. It's spicy and complex, with cranberry, orange peel and lemon aromas. Those flavors are in the mix, along with black cherry, clean earth and dashes of cola and sassafras. A glorious wine, it should be enjoyed now through the late 2020s.
RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Pale to medium ruby-purple colored, the 2015 Pinot Noir Evelyn's is a little youthfully mute, conjuring notions of red currants and pomegranate with hints of wild thyme, yeast extract, damp loam and mossy bark. Light to medium-bodied, the palate has a wonderfully fine-grained texture supporting elegant, delicate fruit, finishing with long-lasting savory and spice notes.
WS 92
Wine Spectator
Soft, supple and delicate, with floral cherry and dark tea aromas and elegantly complex raspberry and smoky spice flavors that glide along the finish. Drink now through 2023. 500 cases made.
W&S 92
Wine & Spirits
A reserve named for Doug Tunnell’s mother, Evelyn’s is a barrel selection that usually ends up being a clonal selection as well. Like Les Dijonnais (also recommended here), it’s a dark thing, with a balsamic spice that recedes with air. It’s spry and lifted, yielding an array of spices and becoming more streamlined as it opens, with a fine lacy acid structure that should lend it some ageability.

Brick House Vineyards was established in 1990. The vineyards are surrounded by the fruit and hazelnut orchards above the Chehalem Valley, the rolling hills at Brick House compose just such a place. A New World site dedicated to Old World wisdom, and a way of growing grapes proven over a thousand years or more. At Brick House, "organically grown" is more than just a phrase on the labels of the wines. All of the fruit is estate grown. All of it is certified organic.

Ribbon Ridge is a regular span of uplifted, marine, sedimentary soils (called Willakenzie), whose highest ridge elevations twist like a ribbon. An early settler from Missouri named Colby Carter noticed this unique topography and gave the region its name in 1865—though but it wasn’t declared its own AVA until 140 years later, in 2005. The AVA is enclosed by mountains on all sides between Yamhill-Carlton and the Chehalem Mountains, and is actually part of the larger Chehalem Mountains AVA. Its soils have a finer texture than its neighbors with parent materials composed of sandstone, siltstone, and mudstone. Given its presence of natural aquifers in this five square mile area, most vineyards are actually easily dry farmed!

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
