Continuing the well-delineated style of his father, second generation winemaker Jason Lett has crafted a classic Eyrie Pinot Noir. What is notable in this excellent vintage is that there is just a little more flesh and full-on black cherry flavor to the fruit, along with the typical herbal and spice highlights. Balanced and ageworthy, though drinking quite nicely right now.
