    "The 2015 Pinot Noir Lewis Rogers Lane explodes with the most gorgeous fragrance of roses and cinnamon stick with a core of red cherries, pomegranate and violets... Medium-bodied, it delivers wonderful vibrancy and depth with satiny tannins and a very long, refreshing finish." ~ Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate

    The aromatics of the Ayres Lewis Rogers Lane Ribbon Ridge Pinot Noir are intoxicatingly impressive. They will envelop you as you lean in for your first sip, and then it's all over. We may have been hooked before we even swallowed our first sip. The warm spices throughout are a perfect match for a Lebanese baked eggplant dish. The eggplant is stuffed with ground lamb, onions, pine nuts and cinnamon, paprika and cumin. It's like the wine was made for this dish... A more classic pairing is grilled salmon with a side of vauduvan-roasted veggies. Or, crisp-roasted chicken with a mushroom-onion gravy works beautifully too. As we are know to say; you can't beat the Pinots out of the Willamette Valley. This Ayres is a testament to that fact.

    Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate: "Pale to medium ruby-purple, the 2015 Pinot Noir Lewis Rogers Lane explodes with the most gorgeous fragrance of roses and cinnamon stick with a core of red cherries, pomegranate and violets, plus a waft of fungi. Medium-bodied, it delivers wonderful vibrancy and depth with satiny tannins and a very long, refreshing finish. Drink 2017-2023." Aug 2017

    Antonio Galloni's Vinous:  "Bright red. Ripe red fruit and floral scents are complicated by suggestions of Indian spices, smoky minerals and cola. Vibrant, spice-tinged raspberry, cherry liqueur and lavender pastille flavors show appealing sweetness and impressive depth. Juicy acidity contributes lift and spine to a very long, focused, gently tannic finish that leaves a sweet floral pastille note behind. Drink 2020-2025." Jan 2018

    Winery:  "If our vineyard could speak this bottle is what it would say. This crowd pleasing Pinot represents all of our estate's clones."
