(2009 Vintage) 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 and elegant wine that delivers intriguing 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.
