2012 Eyrie Vineyards "Estate" Willamette Valley Pinot Meunier

SKU #1242521

Founder David Lett (AKA "Papa Pinot") is credited with the first plantings of Pinot Noir, Gris, and Chardonnay in the Willamette Valley. The Eyrie Vineyard was founded in 1966, and is planted to Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Pinot Meunier, and Muscat Ottonel. This is a rare single-varietal stateside bottling of this Champagne grape. Praise for a previous bottling from the Prince of Pinot: "An unusual varietal bottling for Oregon from 1.5 acres of the original vineyard plantings. Label is written in David’s hand. Very little production and sells out quickly. Aromas of red berries and cherries with a smoky accent. Light and delicate with flavors of red fruits, tobacco and herbs, lifted with bright acidity."

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.

- Highly touted for its Pinot Noirs, Oregon is part of the up-and-coming winemaking industry in the Pacific Northwest of the United States. Most of Oregon is directly affected by the climate coming off of the Pacific Ocean, giving it mild winters and wet summers. This makes it a difficult place to ripen grapes, but some say that the harder grapes have to struggle, the more complex they will turn out to be. Chardonnay and Pinot Gris are two important and successful grapes grown in Oregon.
