Professional Wine Reviews for Eyrie Pinot Noir Rolling Green Vineyard 2013

Rated 92 by Decanter
Deep red. Complex, perfumed bouquet evokes ripe cherry and black raspberry, with notes of dark chocolate and cola building in the glass. Sappy and precise on the palate, with tangy acidity providing lift and spine to the bitter cherry and berry skin flavors. Boasts very good depth and power for the vintage, finishing with solid punch, serious length, and dusty tannins that sneak in late to add shape. (Vinous)
Rated 90 by Robert Parker
The 2013 Pinot Noir Roland Green is actually the renamed 'Rolling Green' (let's call it a belated branding shift by Jason Lett - this is actually named after his grandfather). The nose is intriguing because I thought there would be some whole bunch addition in the blend - very earthy and peppery, subtle iodine and seaweed scents developing in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with gritty tannin, a more masculine Pinot Noir, quite firm and a little austere, but with commendable length on the finish. It is an uncompromising Pinot Noir for those who appreciate a less fruit-driven style.

Additional Information on Eyrie Pinot Noir Rolling Green Vineyard 2013

Winery: Eyrie

Varietal: Pinot Noir

Regularly described as being the grape varietal responsible for producing the world's most romantic wines, Pinot Noir has long been associated with elegance and a broad range of flavors The name means 'black pine' in French, and this is due to the fact that the fruit of this particular varietal is especially dark in color, and hangs in a conical shape, like that of a pine cone. Despite being grown today in almost every wine producing country, Pinot Noir is a notoriously difficult grape variety to cultivate. This is because it is especially susceptible to various forms of mold and mildew, and thrives best in steady, cooler climates. However, the quality of the fruit has ensured that wineries and vintners have persevered with the varietal, and new technologies and methods have overcome many of the problems it presents. Alongside this, the wide popularity and enthusiasm for this grape has ensured it will remain a firm favorite amongst wine drinkers for many years to come.

Region: Oregon

The Oregon wine industry is continuing to go from strength to strength, with many of their Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir wines winning important international awards in recent years. Oregon has also become renowned as an important region for the production of organic and biodynamic wines, demonstrating the fact that the wineries which are dotted across the diverse regions of the state are keen to experiment with their methods and techniques. A wide range of grape varietals flourish in Oregon, including an impressive array of Old World classic grapes alongside American hybrid varietals. This, coupled with the cooler climate and the mix of traditional and excitingly modern wine production methods makes Oregon a fascinating region for wine lovers, particularly those looking for something unique and utterly delicious.

Country: United States

For three hundred years now, the United States has been leading the New World in wine production, both in regards to quantity and quality. Wine is actually produced in all fifty states across the country, with California leading the way by an enormous margin. Indeed, as much as eighty-nine percent of all wines to come out of the United States are produced in California, where the fertile soils and sloping mountain sides, coupled with the long, hot summers provide ideal conditions for producing high quality, European style red, white and rosé wines. With over a million acres of the country under vine, the United States sits comfortably as the fourth largest wine producer in the world, where imported grape varietals from all over the Old World are processed using a successful blend of traditional and contemporary techniques.

Appellation: Willamette Valley

Oregon is a fascinating state when it comes to United States' wines. Although not as famous as nearby California, Oregon has been consistently lauded for its dedication to quality, experimentation and innovation over recent decades, helping it establish a powerful wine industry with a great reputation. Within Oregon, we find the beautiful wine region of Willamette Valley, a lush a fertile region most commonly associated with the production of high quality Pinot Noir grapes, which are internationally recognized as being responsible for many of the New World's finest red wines. Whilst the Pinot Noir grape is the most commonly grown across the region, the climatic conditions and soil types in Willamette Valley make it an ideal location for the cultivation of many different varietals, making it a very interesting area to explore through wine.
