Pinot Noir, ‘Evelyn’s’, Brick House
A barrel selection of equal parts Dijon and Pommard clones, “Evelyn’s” represents the finest wine the Brick House estate vineyard has to offer. Named in honor of the winemaker’s mother, “Evelyn” is bottled only when season and the vineyard combine to produce exceptional quality. Like all Brick House wines, the cuvées that comprise the “Evelyn’s” bottlings ferment with native yeasts. The wine is raised on its lees in barrel for a minimum of 16 months. Typically, “Evelyn’s” Pinot Noir is designed with long term cellaring in mind, often with somewhat elevated tannin structures.
