"Lurid red. A complex, highly perfumed bouquet evokes fresh red and dark berries, Asian spices and incense, and a hint of candied flowers emerges with aeration. Concentrated raspberry preserve, cherry cola and spicecake flavors show excellent clarity and stretch out and become sweeter and deeper on the back half. Shows outstanding clarity and spicy thrust on the impressively persistent finish, which is shaped by smooth, harmonious tannins that fold quickly into the juicy, lingering fruit.-- Josh Raynolds"

"This barrel selection is a 50-50 blend of Pommard and Dijon clone Pinot Noir, all biodynamically farmed. It's spicy and complex, with cranberry, orange peel and lemon aromas. Those flavors are in the mix, along with black cherry, clean earth and dashes of cola and sassafras. A glorious wine, it should be enjoyed now through the late 2020s. PAUL GREGUTT"

Wine Advocate 93
"Pale to medium ruby-purple colored, the 2015 Pinot Noir Evelyn's is a little youthfully mute, conjuring notions of red currants and pomegranate with hints of wild thyme, yeast extract, damp loam and mossy bark. Light to medium-bodied, the palate has a wonderfully fine-grained texture supporting elegant, delicate fruit, finishing with long-lasting savory and spice notes."

Wine Spectator 92
"Soft, supple and delicate, with floral cherry and dark tea aromas and elegantly complex raspberry and smoky spice flavors that glide along the finish. Drink now through 2023. 500 cases made. TF"

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

The Estate
Doug Tunnell, owner and winemaker of Brick House Vineyards, spent seventeen years as a foreign correspondent for CBS television news before returning to his native Oregon to become one of the states preeminent winemakers. In 1990, he bought 40 acres on the Chehalem Ridge. Today, 30 acres are currently under vines, and the winery is a 100 estate producer, growing all of their own fruit and making all of the wine on site. The vineyards have been certified organic for 25 years and are also certified Biodynamic by Demeter, a fact that Doug feels demonstrates his dedication to growing and making the best wines the land can offer.
