This is the 30th anniversary of this iconic Pinot Noir bottling. This particular edition was aged for sixteen months in 65% new French oak prior to bottling. The nose here is simply sensational ranging from cardamon accents to peat moss and black truffle shavings to bright red fruits and citrus zest that all amalgamate marvelously. The texture is beautiful as this silky wine effortlessly dances across the mid-palate. The seamlessness of this wine really entices. Dense dark and red fruits pack this incredible new release. I realize that I have written this before but this 2016 ‘Evenstad’ is up there with the best of its kind ever produced. If enjoying in its youth I beseech you to afford at least a two hour decant prior to enjoying this seductive, hedonistic Oregon Pinot Noir. Drink 2020-2040- 95

An all-time favorite for me. Still the best Pinot Noir I’ve tasted yet. I typically like Cabernet-Sauvignon and this reminds me of a good cab but with the lightness and “headroom” between tastes that Pinot tends to have.

Really nice Pinot. Medium bodied, more flavorful than usual for an Oregon Pinot. Nice fruit notes.

This was definitely the favorite tonight. It had a lot of vanilla on the palate and quite smooth. Tasted pretty young still but very good.
