Tyee Estate Chardonnay is chosen for the second year in a row as one of Oregon's Top Chardonnays. The Oregon Wine Press says about 2011 Tyee Estate Chardonnay, "Ripe, tasty flavors and bright, lively acidity make for an immediately appealing charmer whose beautiful balance retains its attraction.

Tyee Estate Barrel Select Pinot Noir 2009 wins a GOLD MEDAL at the 2013 AMERICAN FINE WINE COMPETITION
2009 Tyee Estate Barrel Select Pinot Noir wins a place on the Prince of Pinot's Oregon Value Priced Pinot Noirs First Team, a Top 10 list of favorite Oregon Pinots tasted in 2012.
Josh Raynolds of Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar rates 2009 Tyee Estate Barrel Select Pinot Noir with 90 Points for its “Vivid ruby-red. Sexy aromas of ripe raspberry, cola, Asian spices, licorice and mocha. Focused and sappy, with strong cinnamon and star anise notes adding complexity to the cherry, red berry and cola flavors. Finishes silky and long, with gentle tannins and appealing sweetness.”
The Prince of Pinot says about 2009 Tyee Estate Barrel Select Pinot Noir, "Reserved but enticing aromas of a bowl of crushed dark red cherries, plums and berries. A very polished wine with grace and elegance, yet offering a substantial rush of sinfully delicious and perfectly ripe dark red cherries and berries that persist on the crisp and juicy finish. Combines power with finesse. Youthful, and will benefit from more time in the cellar."
2008 Tyee Estate Barrel Select Pinot Noir wins a spot in the Top 11 Oregon Pinot Noirs of 2011, All-Americans First Team from the Prince of Pinot.
"Reserved but pleasing scent of fresh cherries and raspberries with a hint of spice and rose petal. The perfectly ripened fruit has a dark red profile, the dry tannins and crisp acidity frame the fruit beautifully, and the silky finish makes a lasting impression. A perfect argument for the superiority of old vine Pinot Noir. The wine was still great the following day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle, but I couldn’t report beyond this as I eagerly finished the bottle. An exceptional wine that is much more approachable than many reserve Pinot Noirs from Oregon’s 2008 vintage. A vin de garde for Oregon in 2008."
Tyee 2008 Estate Pinot Noir and Tyee 2008 Estate Barrel Select Pinot Noir listed in Burghound.com's top 53 Oregon Pinot Noir Selections.
Tyee 2008 Pinot Noir – Estate: "A perfumed, airy and very pretty dark berry fruit and violet-infused nose merges seamlessly into round, supple and suave medium-bodied flavors before culminating in a clean, pure, dusty and agreeably dry finish that delivers fine depth and length." 90 Points
Tyee 2008 Pinot Noir – Estate Barrel Select: "A more deeply pitched nose offers greater complexity but at the cost of less aromatic elegance. The cool and equally pure middle weight flavors possess really lovely detail as well as a sophisticated mouth feel that terminates in a similar finish but here the ripe structure is just a bit firmer. Lovely juice." 91 Points
