2012 Evesham Wood Pinot Noir Le Puits Sec

Eola - Amity Hills more

6/22/2015 - Milliontown wrote: 88 points

Composite cork.
Deep ruby colour, aromas of nutmeg, orange rind, fennel, and lashings of sweet vanilla from what I can only assume is a fair whack of new american oak. It almost overpowers the fruit profile underneath.
Very little tannins to speak of. Yet it's quite full bodied for a pinot. There's more of a structured fruit profile on the palate with some lovely silky sour cherries and herbs, but the sweet vanilla character features prominently again.
The length of fruit on the aftertaste is great, but overall this is a bit tightly wound at the moment. I'm hoping it will improve with some time in the bottle.
Edit: by day 2, this had fallen over and was an empty shell of a wine. By day 3, it was pretty much vinegar. Hmm.

Much better balanced than two years ago - not so tart. Still lots of red fruit and spice. Earthier now. Nice texture.

Bill's lunch, Coop's wine. Light color. Ethereal, aromatic nose of roses and Oregon rain forest with raw mushrooms and thyme on the palate. Less about power than emotion, and I love that about this cool vintage.

Dark garnet core with a lighter rim. The aromatics show a classic mix of cherry & black tea, quite powerful. On the fuller side of medium bodied with a silky texture, but shows brooding power as well. Dark cherry & earthy notes mix on the palate. Acidity is present, but the tannins are still out in front. This still needs to unwind a bit.

Medium weight, nice cherry and cranberry flavors with some spice and good acidity. Slightly bitter, metallic finish that was initially very detracting but diminished somewhat after an hour of air. Pumped air and finished on second night, fruit disappeared but metallic aftertaste remained. I don't think this will get any better.

No notes, but a typical off-balance pinot from a hot vintage. Not bad but not great.

Terrific stuff. Not sure if I have had any post Raney Pinots but I do night detect any change in style. Very pretty. Aromas of cherries and spice with a bit of raspberry. The palate is light and complex. Red fruit and and dried flowers. How in the world is this sub $20. Clean and pure. Classic Evesham Wood.

Hmmm. Seems mediocre compared to previous bottles - just flat and never really shone, even over a couple days. Hmmm. Judgement deferred.

Aromas of baking spices/mixed spices, raw almond, floral and warm or burnt jam. The aroma tells me this is a 2009. On the palate this has cherries, unripe red currants, raspberry possibly. It shows somewhat hot, as in there is good fruit initially but then the acid and alcohol rise up quickly in the mid-palate and over take the fruit flavors, making the wine uninteresting. It's out of balance. It's great with food, we sat around at the end of the night sipping this with cookies and various other treats and it was really pleasant. On it's own it's hot and a little messy, which can be a good thing sometimes but not this time.

Light red. Great nose of roses, light red cherries, pencil shavings and thyme. Great light flavours. Dry finish. Should improve. The acid is huge but balanced.

Nine more months in bottle made this an even better wine than the one we had last September. Same earthy fruit with mushrooms, but it had a little tomato skin and more herbs. Best $20ish OR pinot on the market.

B+. Don't remember much about this except that Evesham Wood almost always tastes good. The only problem is when I open them too soon.

2006 Evesham Wood Pinot Noir Le Puits Sec

A stunning pinot noir that is showing wonderfully. Nose develops over the course of a couple of hours in great ways: initially very floral and light, but within an hour shows deepening dark cherry, blueberry aroma, still mixing with darker floral notes. The palate is bright and nicely acidic at first, and becomes darker over the next couple hours, with an earthiness mingled with some background spice, more dark cherry notes and ongoing balanced acidity. Very pure pinot noir, with no evident manipulation and no evident sense of oak. One of the best expressions of this grape. Definitely not near any peaking point heading downward. I'm moving my drinking date out another year to 2017, since next year's deadline seems too close.

I liked this wine a year ago and I like it more now. On opening, it had a really odd, off-putting wet basement smell. I thought something might be wrong with my glass so I switched glasses. It wasn't the glass. But the wine itself was fine. After about 30 minutes the icky smell disappeared. At that point, the wine was beautiful - bright red, sweet strawberry/cherry fruits, enough acid to carry and a finish that was dusty, spicy-tart and long. Very nice wine - better value.

A really nice wine. Red fruit, earth, really nicely balanced. The nose doesn't particularly scream Oregon PN as I like to experience, but nonetheless a good wine. I need to continue to get Evesham Wood from whereever I can.

Purchased and consumed at a restaurant and thus no notes. Expressive nose of red fruits, florals and earthy/brambly aromas. Nice depth and intensity of fruit flavors, and with that same rustic character as on the nose. Juicy mouthfeel with plenty of structure and grip. Overall an intriguing, fruity, bright, complex wine that is drinking great now, and will certainly improve over the next few years. I obviously had a very different wine from the one described by the most recent previous tasters.

Bold nose of ripe cherries and strawberries, tobacco pouch, incense, dried roses and faint hints of earthy forest floor. Silky across the palate with fine tannin and balanced acidity, and dark fruit flavors with earth and spice. There's a bit of heat in the finish. This isn't as aromatically pleasing to me as the 2010 or 2011, but it's balanced and drinking better now.

Pretty disjointed in it's youth. Nice complexities of ripe fruit, forrest floor, fungus, cedar, tobacco but not coming together at this stage even on the 3rd day. I would recommend holding for a few more years at least.

Nose was initially a bit sweet and jammy, but morphed quickly into a pleasant nose of cherry, strawberry, spice and sous bois. Medium weight with bright, fresh, focused red fruits, spice and forest floor. Seamless, silky, slightly creamy, perfectly balanced and nice grip. Overall, a really elegant, brightly flavored, delicious pinot that drinks way above its price point.

Popped one of these in the name of science. Yuck. Totally basic. Bar-b-q-ee. Again, yuck. At least right now. Hope it gains some complexity. Vineyard track record indicates that it will. We'll see....

Dark ruby in the glass. Aromas of black cherry, perfume and tobacco. The overall impression is light and nuanced. More fruit than earth, and not a surprise for the vintage. The wine is balanced and has plenty of acidity for aging potential. Drink now or later.
