The overall impression of the wine is freshness and balance in spite of the warm vintage. On the nose, savory red raspberry and blueberry combine with a truffled earthiness and floral spice. On the palate, crushed strawberry, violets, and sweet cherry pay homage to the riper year while briar, and porcini notes bring complexity. Texture is defined by soft but present tannins that rise through the midpalate to create a sueded texture. The tannins are enhanced by firm acidity on the finish.

The pale to medium ruby-purple colored 2016 Pinot Noir has a nose of fresh cranberries, raspberries and warm red cherry jam with hints of smoked meat, peppercorn and warm earth. Light to medium-bodied and very vibrant in the mouth, it offers warm red fruit preserves and dried red flowers framed by very fine, grainy tannins and mouthwatering acidity, finishing long with savory nuances.

This aromatic wine mixes hints of thimbleberries with a light whiff of compost. The flavors follow in line, with wild raspberry fruit and a bit of mocha. It's firmly anchored in svelte ripe tannins, and just a touch of chocolate. As with virtually all Eyrie Pinots, this should age nicely for a decade at least. Drink now to 2030.

Elegantly complex and sleek, with appealing cherry and green tea flavors that finish with refined tannins. Drink now through 2023.
