 Eileen Vineyard Pinot Noir Accolades

2014 Vintage

95 points- 2014 Eileen Vineyard Pinot Noir, Eola-Amity Hills
"Perhaps the best thing to be said about this wine is how much it compelled us to want to drink more of it. Grown at Cristom's highest-elevation vineyard, this is captivating from start to finish, by turns propulsive and generous, light and penetrating, invigorating in its earthy lavender scents, its wisp of bergamot and cherry. Fully ripe, it maintains a light tone, propelled by vigorous acidity and suspended by a pulsing, mineral grip."

"Brilliant red. Highly frangrant, expansive scents of ripe red berries, Asian spices, blood orange and candied rose; a smoky mineral element builds in the glass. Silky and seamless in texture, offering palate-staining raspberry and floral pastille flavors that show a striking interplay of depth and vivacity. Closes sweet, gently tannic and impressively long, delivering lingering notes of emphatic red berry, spice and floral pastille."

"Subtle aromas of cedar, dark berries, tea and orange peel follow through to a full to medium body, compacted fruit and a fine tannin backbone. Excellent acidity as well. Drink in 2019."

2014 Eileen Vineyard Pinot Noir

The wine has an enticing aroma of a complex blend of spices including cinnamon, clove, anise seed, ginger root, nutmeg and turmeric reminiscent of South Asian cuisine.  On the palate, it exudes bright red fruits, has great balance and a good weight to the mid-palate with soft, tannins that in short time will integrate beautifully.  This wine has tremendous structure and the distinct ability to age gracefully over a period of 10 – 12 years or more.
