Ayoub Pinot noir

Mo Ayoub's Ayoub vineyard is in a great neighborhood. With a four-acre parcel tucked into the prime Pinot land of the Dundee Hills, Mo is a stone's throw from Maresh, Rambouillet (Dusky Goose), Winderlea (Goldschmidt), and many other oustanding vineyards.Mo makes the wine with consulting winemaker Robert Brittan.


Mo Ayoub's tribute to his family, "Memoirs" Pinot noir is a blend of four Pinots from highend, highly-rated Oregon wineries - so good that they could be described as Oregon wine royalty. Mo bought barrels of their wine for his "Memoirs" project under the condition that they remain anonymous.

Rex Pickett, author of "Sideways"
says of Ayoub Pinot noir:

"Ayoub's wines are bold, rustic and some of the finest expressions of the pinot noir grape I've ever tasted."

"Maybe it's unfair to single out one winemaker to the exclusion of so many others in the Willamette Valley, but Ayoub is emblematic of what's happening with Oregon pinot: small production, hands-on approach, and intimate and rigorous control over the final product".

Ayoub Wines "Memoirs" Pinot noir 2011 $29.95/$26.95

A "Memoir" in honor of Mo Ayoub's fond recollections of family, this Pinot is dark in the glass, with a vivid perfume of sweet cherry and raspberry, dried roses, and a hint of spicy incense. Velvet-textured and ripe, the wine is flush with black cherry and blackberry flavors, seasoned with a hint of Bourbon vanilla. Soft tannins balance a streak of fresh red cherry acidity that adds structure. Swirling the glass, the finish evolves to include a reiteration of rose petal and incense notes. - Avalon
