Regular price $40.60 Sale

David Lett, aka “Papa Pinot”, was the first visionary to realize that Oregon’s Willamette Valley was the best place in the world to grow the finest Pinot Noir outside of Burgundy. In the early 1960s Lett explored high-quality Pinot growing possibilities around the world and discovered the “secret” from the French that the finest wines come from grapes which grow at the climatic edge of where they will ripen in coincidence with the end of the growing season.

All grapes for this wine came from Eyrie's vineyards in the Dundee Hills. Even though this is their "young vine" cuvee, the vines average 32 years. Estate fruit is blended with Cattrall Vineyard fruit from the Eola-Amity Hills to create a beautiful, perfumed and expressive wine. 90+ rated.
