1986 Eyrie Vineyards Pinot Noir Barrel Reserve

Dundee Hills more

6/29/2015 - MattMauldin Likes this wine: NR

Willamette Valley late June tastings: Poured at the tasting room from the "Elva" re-purposed bottling machine. Bricking light ruby color. Beautiful aromas of musty spice, tea leaf, fig and wet autumn foliage. Nice tertiary tones showing on the palate, floral and tea leaf spice, but with surprisingly bright fig and cherry fruit still showing. Silky and lithe with a full finish. A short glimpse of an extraordinary wine at nearly 30 years.
