World Class Pinot in Large Format!

While on vacation in 1986, Michael Etzel came upon an 88-acre pig farm for sale located in the Northern reaches of the Willamette Valley. After some deliberation, Michael purchased the farm with his brother-in-law, Robert Parker, Jr (yes, that Robert Parker!). Since then, the wines have gained a cult-like following for attaining a richness and complexity without being overly extracted, nor overly oaked. The 2016 vintage marks a change of hands with the winery, as Robert Parker Jr. retired from the venture and a new partnership was formed with 8th generation, family-owned, Maisons & Domaines Henriot (You probably know them for their excellent Champagne). As with all wines, to enjoy them from a standard sized bottle is one thing, but to have access to large format bottlings puts these wines in another league all together. The larger the bottle, the slower and more graceful the ageing which makes them a top choice for collectors. Multifaceted aromas of black cherries mingle with blueberry preserves, and then open up to baking spices and dusty earth. In the glass, it is velvety and rich, where blackberry and cherry flavors loom large, followed by mellow notes of clove, nutmeg and vanilla. There are a lot of benefits to purchasing large format bottles – for their uniqueness, their ageability, their collectability  – but our favorite reason is because they are a downright delicious way to make a big splash for a special occasion.
