The first three words I wrote were the same: "wow." I can't imagine how you'd fit more into a $20 Pinot. In what I'm recognizing more as the Matello house-style, the fruit in Lazarus is not the juicy type - it's the distilled essence of fruit that creates an almost haunting effect (good haunting!). 2012 brought half the typical production of Lazarus, meaning it will sell out very quickly. - Marcus (in the north)

Previous vintage notes: Light ruby red with aromas of cherry with traces of earth and savory herb. Flavors on the palate include raspberry, cherry, even notes of marionberry. This wine will continue to evolve for 5 to 10 years.

Sourced from five vineyards: Whistling Ridge, Durant, Bishop Creek, Hoffarth and Winter's Hill.

2010 Vintage Tasting Notes

I taste a ton of Oregon Pinot and in my opinion, this is the best value Oregon Pinot on the market right now. There is so much packed into this wine: beautifully vivid flavors, surprising density and persistence, perfect balance. Seriously, if this is Matello's Willamette Valley blend, his 2010 reserves must be scary! Back up the truck and load up. - Marcus

The 2009 received 91 points from Wine Advocate.

2009 Vintage Tasting Notes

The 2009 Pinot Noir Lazarus saw no new oak but was made with 35% whole clusters. Cedar, cinnamon, brown sugar, cherry cola, and raspberry aromas inform the nose of a moderately structured, savory wine that is likely to evolve for 1-2 years and will provide optimum drinking from 2012 to 2019. - Jay Miller

The Lazarus cuvee is a blend of 17 barrels from 3 of our vineyards: Whistling Ridge, Winterís Hill, and Bishop Creek. Average vine age is 20 years old, and all three vineyards are dry farmed vineyards (of which 2 are certified LIVE). This cuvee highlights the pretty fruit, and forward character of the vintage. Friendly, forward, and precocious, the 2009 Lazarus will develop well for the next 5-10 years. - the winery
