  Haden Fig Pinot noir

Without ANY doubt, Haden Fig was the breakout/success story of last year. We were so stoked about Haden Fig, and you responded with equal enthusiasm (stokedness?). We have good news...and better news: Haden Fig Willamette Valley 09 is ready to roll and we're every bit as stoked about the 2009. It is drinking better at release than the 2008 was.

A lot (A LOT) has happened since we last wrote about Haden Fig. Winemaker/co-owner Erin Nuccio and his wife Jordan purchased Evesham Wood Winery from Russ and Mary Raney. Anybody who has tasted Haden Fig wines will know Evesham Wood is in good hands with Erin Nuccio. In fact, there isn't a person we'd trust more to carry on the Evesham Wood legacy.

In addition to Haden Fig 09, we're giddy to offer the late fall, super-limited releases from Evesham Wood: Cuvee J and Illahe Vineyard 2008 Pinot noirs. Cuvee J is the top wine from Evesham, named for famed Burgundy producer Henri Jayer. It is a 6 barrel (150 case) selection from Le Puits Sec Vineyard, Evesham's certified organic, dry-farmed estate. Illahe Vineyard keeps producing compelling wines - the 2008 is a vineyard selection that yields a whopping 4 barrels (90 cases).

Because the production of Evesham Wood Cuvee J and Illahe Pinot noirs is so small, we've combined them with the new Haden Fig Pinot noir in a mixed case.

One of the cooler finds from cleaning out the cellar...

Evesham Wood Cuvee "J" Pinot noir 08 $44.95

One of Oregon's most elusive wines

150 cases made

Darker and burlier than Le Puits Sec, the vineyard's amazingly elegant creaminess shines through in the 08 Cuvee J. Packed with dark berry and black cherry fruit, the J adds crushed lavender, purple flowers and Asian spices to the deep mix. It was stunning with our dinner of pan-seared Cattail Creek Farms lamb chops, delicata squash, and a grape tomato-sherry salsa. - Marcus

Evesham Wood Illahe Vineyard Pinot noir 08 $29.95

90 cases made

Sporting a nose that is very Oregon, filled with essence of Douglas fir and wild berries. There is a bit more of an oak note - this makes sense because of the 4 barrels made, 2 were new - and it integrates nicely with the fresh, almost edgy nature of this Pinot. The 08 Illahe is a candidate for mid-term cellaring though it shows a softness and elegance that make it pretty darn good right now. - Marcus
