Chris Mazepink is something special. I saw it when he was making wine for Shea Wine Cellars, and I really see it now with his family label, Ebony. With 25 years in the Oregon wine business, I know something special when I see it.
Chris is an unrecognized superstar. 10 years from now you’ll look back and wish you had his first vintages. Or, you can start collecting them today.
Chris made just 4 barrels of his 2010 Estate Pinot – Olenik Vineyard – and we have a handful of cases. Here’s your chance to get in on Oregon wine history.
Ebony Wines Olenik Vineyard Pinot noir 2010
96 cases made
$39.60 in any 12 bottle order or build a case ($44.00 retail)
Succulent, round, mouthcoating, juicy, fresh. And that’s just the beginning. Supple, with black fruit and a rich, velvety texture, the 2010 Olenik introduces itself with an intense aroma of dried cherries, cocoa, and blackstrap molasses, all while maintaining a sense of freshness and a hint of violets.
It fills my senses with big, round, juicy flavors – fresh and vibrant concentrated cherry fruit, cinnamon, clove, dried blueberry, and dried cranberry. I could drink this wine today, or cellar it for many years. If you like your wine lush, round, juicy and full, with layer after layer of flavor, this is the Pinot noir for you.
Thank you for reading and for supporting Avalon!
