    Pale to medium ruby-purple, the 2012 Monogram Pinot Noir has a sauteed herb-laced nose with black cherry cordial, blackberry preserves and dark chocolate notes plus hints of tilled loam, chargrill, licorice and cedar. Full-bodied, big, rich, dense and dark-fruited, there is notable oak poking through on the palate, with crisp acid and chewy tannins, finishing long and a little angular. If the oak and structure come together with the fruit, this has the potential to be even better.

  • Owners Ken and Grace Evenstad arrived in Oregon in 1989 to pursue their passion for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Their winemaker Tony Rynders, who holds a Masters in Enology from UC Davis, crafts impeccably balanced wines primarily from three low-yielding estate properties: Jerusalem Hill, Evenstad and Winery Hill. Syrah is produced under their Rock Block label.

    Oregon has seen a huge boom in wine production in recent decades, as has the entire Pacific Northwest region. Once known for small wineries nestled amongst farmland, the Oregon wine industry has been the recipient of a huge capital influx, which has opened up new vine-growing territory and built numerous large-production brands. Although best known for Pinot Noir from the Willamette Valley, which sits at the same latitude as Burgundy, the state continues to build a reputation for Rhône and white varieties as well.
