Isabelle Munier had already made noise as a winemaker in Burgundy before coming to Oregon to oversee Dominique Lafon’s Evening Land project in 2007. In short order, she established herself as one of the leading winemakers in Oregon, and made Evening Land one of the most sought-after wines in the Valley, with a decidedly Burgundian style; a strong kick of minerality and plenty of textural tension. In 2014, Isabelle started Lavinea, a more expansive project aimed at highlighting some of the Willamette Valley’s oldest vineyards. She has kept her signature winemaking style, and brings the same sense of grace and power to each of her single vineyard wines. This Eola-Amity Pinot from 2021 is also a single vineyard, but we’re not allowed to know which one it is yet. If the results in this bottle are any indication, we’ll be seeing the vineyard title on Lavinea bottles soon enough! In keeping with the general theme of the vintage, this Pinot begins with a friendly burst of fruit on the nose. Black cherry, red raspberry, and blackcurrant framed by rose petals, vanilla bean, oak spices and a few shakes of the pepper mill. The palate is on the medium-to-full bodied side, with well polished, mile-long tannins providing a silky home for a spread of red and black berry fruits, sarsaparilla, underbrush, and a touch of toffee. This is the sort of perfectly balanced and carefully built Pinot Noir that’s delicious now but has the structure to age another ten to twelve years if you can stand to wait. Longtime lovers of Domaine Drouhin should take special note. This one is right up your alley.
