Evesham Wood 2019 Pinot Noir Illahe Vineyard

2019 Evesham Wood
Pinot Noir Illahe Vineyard


Vintage 2019 offers some great news: We have examples of 2019 Pinot Noir’s from all our stellar vineyards and they are impressive.  A beautiful balance was achieved leaning towards cooler vintage drinking wines with bright acidity, focus and elegance, but with some core ripe fruit mixed in.  It’s no secret I prefer wines from cooler growing seasons, but the one downside to those wines is that they often need a few months to a year for the mid-palate to plump up and gain some wait.  Not the 2019’s.  Beautiful elegance combines with an instantly gratifying mid-palate.  I think these may be very long-term aging wines as well.

The Ford’s continue to farm our blocks at Illahe Vineyard organically as they expand their own experiments. Ripe fruit on the nose with a savory tamarind note weaving with plump dark fruit and a firm finish.
