2016 Eyrie Vineyards Pinot Noir Roland Green Dundee Hills

Eyrie vinifies its Pinot cuvées identically in an effort to showcase site. They use ambient yeast, small fermentation vessels, and aging in a very modest amount of new oak.

This vineyard named after David Lett’s father, Roland Green Lett. Its five south-facing acres were planted in 1988 to Pommard and Wadenswil clones.

This wine is profusely aromatic, suggesting dried fruits and flowers, sun-dried tomato, black earth, juniper, and pine. It’s a dark wine, earthy and savory, ripe seeming but totally serious. It’s a wine to give Burgundy a run for its money..
