The Evenstad Reserve Pinot Noir is our flagship wine, and is the defining standard by which all of our Pinot Noirs are measured. We hand select our best barrels each year to create a reserve wine that is consistent in both its superior quality, and flavor profile. A true illustration of the art of blending, the 2013 Evenstad Reserve Pinot Noir is a wonderfully complex elegant wine with in- triguing notes of black cherry, currants, cloves and nutmeg. With some air, notes of allspice, cardamom and black tea emerge from the glass with a subtle lift of cocoa powder and vanilla. In the mouth, the wine shows elegance and finesse with brooding depth and concentration, vibrant red fruits, silky tannins and great persistence.

Peppery herbal notes populate the nose, leading into flavors of brambly red fruits. The wine gathers strength on the midpalate, finishing with a flourish of strawberry preserves. There's a touch of rhubarb pie and a dusting of cocoa in the mix as well, and for an Oregon Pinot Noir made in such quantities (more than 10,000 cases) it offers exceptional depth and density.

Light and tangy, with fuzzy tannins around a deftly balanced core of pastel raspberry and floral flavors, finishing with refinement and gaining momentum as the finish lingers. Drink now through 2019. 10,743 cases made.

57 percent new oak) Limpid ruby-red. Oak-spiced red berries, cherry and licorice on the fragrant nose, along with hints of vanilla and musky herbs in the background. Sweet and lively in the mouth, offering juicy raspberry and cherry cola flavors that unfold and slowly put on weight with air. The vanilla and cola notes recur on a long, gently tannic finish that's given snap by a late jolt of tangy acidity.

The 2013 Pinot Noir Evanstad Reserve is raised in barrel for 16 months using 57% new oak. It has a more complex bouquet compared to the Yamhill Cuvée with attractive raspberry and briary scents, the oak neatly integrated here. The palate is medium-bodied with more red fruit than black, approaching soft(ish) tannin with a slight tinniness towards the finish that will hopefully recede with time. Enjoy this over the next 6-8 years, but don't hesitate if you feel like keeping it in the cellar for another 12-18 months.
