2010 Ebony "The Quarry" Willamette Valley Pinot Noir ($32):

"Chris Mazepink has guts. When the former winemaker at Shea Wine Cellars and current director of viticulture and winemaking for Benton-Lane Winery in Monroe introduced his new label, Ebony, he made it primarily a direct-to-consumer brand. ...this is a wine aiming for cult status. And this pinot, from Ebony's second-ever vintage, certainly stands out from the rest. It's juicy and silky, with an alluring texture imparted by the use of oak (instead of steel) fermentation tanks. This is a pinot noir that will make you sit up, take notice!!!"
