Praise for Lavinea’s 2014 Vintage from Wine Enthusiast

“Modern Marvels… seriously complex and undoubtedly ageworthy.” -Paul Gregutt

2014 LAVINEA Elton Vineyard Pinot Noir:  From 30-year-old vines, this is beautifully built and already showing the complexity that predicts a long life ahead. The old-vine grapes create a skeleton of mineral and acid upon which just-ripe fruit flavors of mulberry, plum and blueberry are placed. Drink now with pleasure, or put a few bottles away to enjoy through 2027 or longer. Cellar Selecton. 93 Points.

Oregon Pinot Noir: The Exceptional 2014s

“The 2014’s are the inaugural wines for Lavinea and they already show enormous promise, based on those bottlings as well as the 2015s that I tasted from barrel in August… I’m betting that Lavinea will, in short order, be widely considered among Oregon’s elite producer’s.”

“Next Wave of Oregon Vineyards”

“For her new winery, ex-Evening Land winemaker Isabelle Meunier divided her sources for 2014 among the six Willamette Valley sub-AVAs. She wants to explore the differences among vineyards “with maturity and yet with more potential.” Among them are Tualatin Estate, originally planted in 1974, more recently with some Dijon clones. Others fermenting away for her first vintage were Saikonnen in Ribbon Ridge, on slopes that face Bergström’s vineyard (2001 plantings), and Lazy River, one of the few sites in Yamhill-Carlton on Jory soils (2001 plantings).”
