We were saddened to hear that ‘Papa Pinot’ David Lett of Eyrie Vineyards passed away on Thursday. I never met David in person, but I did get the opportunity to know him well through his wines and contributions to the wine industry. I met with his son, Jason, in August to research an article on Eyrie, which was included in the last issue of Mutineer Magazine.
If you haven’t had a bottle of Eyrie Pinot Noir, do yourself a favor and track down a bottle.
Here is a link to the obituary in the LA Times.
