The New York Times Reporter Eric Asimov informed the world Why Oregon Will Fondly Remember 2011 with a list of “clear, focused and vivacious” wines from a vintage that will stand out in Oregon’s history. Asimov lists Eyrie Vineyard’s 2011 Dundee Hills Pinot Noir as one of the top 20 2011 wines from Oregon, calling it “pale yet pure, with subtle flavors of minerals and flowers.”
Eyrie is a historic Oregon producer characterized by its pale color and ability to age well for decades. This wine was especially light, yet it would be a mistake to think it is slight or under ripe. Instead, it was surprisingly complex with subtle floral and mineral flavors. -Asimov
