Five New Oregon Pinots from
Evesham Wood & Haden Fig

Evesham Wood Eola Amity Hills Pinot noir 2011Every year Evesham Wood and its co-winery Haden Fig produce unbeatable values in small production Oregon Pinot noir. The wines are always Avalon bestsellers and favorites.

Winemaker Erin Nuccio has a string of new releases including five cellar-worthy Pinots under $30, plus the fantastic summer sippers Blanc du Puits Sec and Tempranillo Rose.

Evesham Wood
Eola-Amity Pinot noir 2011

$23.35 in any 12 bottle order or Build a Case*
($25.95 regular)
Dark cherry, forest floor and pronounced structure. Our Eola-Amity cuvée is essentially the reserve bottling to our Willamette Valley Pinot. Our favorite barrels are selected (from within the Eola-Amity AVA) and aged for an additional 6 months in the caves. This year an equal number of barrels were selected from Eola Springs Vineyard and Hidden Rocks Vineyard. The long, cool growing season of 2011 is well demonstrated here with elegant depth and focus. – the winery

Evesham Wood
La Grive Bleue Pinot noir 2011

$25.15 in any 12 bottle order or Build a Case*
($27.95 regular)
Bolder with darker fruit than the Eola-Amity and a bit rounder texture. 250 cases produced. As always the La Grive Bleue bottling is sourced from our small northeast block on our estate vineyard. While there are some distinct soil and clonal differences (Dijon 777 and 114 as opposed to the rest of Le Puits Sec that is planted heavily to Pommard) the wine displays classic Le Puits Sec notes. – the winery

Haden Fig
Cancilla Vineyard Pinot noir 2011

$26.95 in any 12 bottle order or Build a Case*
($29.95 regular)
Cancilla Vineyard lies in the northern end of the Willamette Valley in the foothills of the Coast Range. This vineyard is a relatively cooler site allowing for full development of flavors while keeping alcohol moderate and preserving acidity. 6 barrels were selected for additional aging in the caves and bottled separately in February. The 2011 shows dusty earth, bright red cherry and dried mushroom. 146 cases produced. – the winery

Haden Fig
Bjornson Vineyard Pinot noir 2011

$26.95 in any 12 bottle order or Build a Case*
($29.95 regular)
2011 was our second year working with this relatively young vineyard in the heart of the Eola-Amity Hills. Our 4 favorite barrels from the vintage were bottled separately. Dark cherry, deep raspberry and a vivacity that is so distinct to the Eola-Amity Hills. 100 cases produced. – the winery

Haden Fig
Pinot noir Organic #52 2011

$18.85 in any 12 bottle order or Build a Case*
($20.95 regular)
This Organic Pinot noir is an incredible value. A fantastically deep nose of bright berries and floral notes.  Coloring is lighter, a notch or two darker than a rose.  Cherry and raspberry interweave on the palate nicely complimented by subtle forest floor. Made from certified organically grown grapes. – Andy

Evesham Wood
Blanc du Puits Sec 2012

$13.05 in any 12 bottle order or Build a Case*
($14.49 regular)
A perennial favorite of mine. This racy little crowd-pleaser is a blend of Pinot gris and Gewurztraminer. Floral notes and wet stones on the nose lead to a light citrus and mineral driven summer white that goes great while mowing the lawn or wowing houseguests. – Andy

Evesham Wood
Vin d’une Nuit Rose of Tempranillo 2012

$11.65 in any 12 bottle order or Build a Case*
($12.95 regular)
Sourced exclusively from the Illahe vineyard, this vintage is a rich, crisp wine with watermelon and strawberry flavors and a hint of pepper. Rich flavors followed by a crisp finish. 160 cases produced.
