Evesham Wood Mahonia Vineyard Pinot noir 2010 $29.95
The first of the two "darker side" Pinots from Evesham (Illahe being the other), this takes me back to my first days at Avalon - the last time Mahonia Vineyard was on an Evesham label. Black cherry and blackberry forms the frame, with nice ripeness through the finish, adding licorice, morel mushroom, and a clear bead of acidity melding with the ripe fruit. Drinking nicely already, I'd expect it to be ideal in 2-4 years. - Marcus
Evesham Wood Temperance Hill Pinot noir 2010 $29.95
Singing with red fruit, this pure and elegant Pinot has quickly become an Avalon staple. Fresh cherry, cherry candy, cedar, a ribbon of black currant, and a nuance of peppercorn cream. I recommend holding this at least a couple years though it is undeniably attractive now - I couldn't help but finish the bottle with dinner last night. - Marcus
Evesham Wood Illahe Vineyard Pinot noir 2010 $29.95
The more Pinot I taste from the Illahe vineyard the more I like this site. Hints of white pepper, strawberry, and truffle oil. A Pinot noir that will age exceptionally well. - Andy
Haden Fig Cancilla Vineyard Pinot noir 2010 $29.95
The Cancilla Vineyard Pinot noir's beguiling and cerebral aromas make you want to pour a glass and smell it for hours. Dark red fruit, rosemary, and wet stones expand into a palate of dark berries, bright acidity and a picture-perfect finish of sweet licorice playing off white pepper. The Cancilla is fun to drink now, especially over the course of a few days, but it will achieve another level of greatness when cellared for several years. Only 150 cases made for the world.
