I’ll let Neal Martin, Oregon wine reviewer for Wine Advocate, do all the critiquing or most of it anyway, although I’d disagree with a few. Most notable Wind Hill which is probably the second best wine I’ve ever had the pleasure of drinking, let alone having the pleasure of turning it from fruit into liquid. The other is the YC Pinot that he just had experienced a bad bottle and I’ve contacted the posts that be to be sure and retaste the next time Neal is back in Oregon or I am in London. – Jay
Neal Martin on EIEIO:
I must confess that I found the name baffling when I encountered EIEIO in my London tastings, at least until I enunciated each letter separately and thought of “Old MacDonald”. Clever…maybe too clever! Still, what matters is not the name but the wine and here there is much to savor. Winemaker Jay MacDonald clearly has the knack of producing top-quality Pinot Noirs that stood out from the crowd, in particular his superb Wind Hill Vineyard Pinot Noir that is surfeit with freshness and vitality. Hopefully, I’ll get to meet Jay on my next trip to Oregon.
