Tasting Notes

Great contrasts of old world meets new world scents - crushed rock, ripe pear and apple, subtle mushroom, and dried grass. The palate is textured, with baking spice, ripe yellow apple, peach, and cream and popcorn flavors.

About

Marcus Goodfellow grew up on a Douglas Fir tree farm in Oregon. He got the wine bug in college while working in restaurants, first in Los Angeles and later in Portland. His wine education began in 2002 when he worked the harvest at Evesham Wood and made his first wines in the old Westrey Wine Company building, next door to Eyrie’s old building, Marcus works only with farmers he likes and trusts, and who tend their vineyards personally rather than relying on vineyard management companies. For him, wine is a deeply personal matter. He’s a stickler about dry-farmed vineyards. He prefers windy cool sites with good airflow and drainage. He likes ground watched over by a faithful grower which in turn translates into wine with distinct personality. Founded in 2002, and producing approximately 4000 cases annually, they focus on old vines planted in unique and beautiful sites, conscientious farming, and techniques of tradition in the cellar.
