How does a silky elegant, smoky complex, Willamette Valley Pinot Noir grown on a prime volcanic-soiled site and made by one of Oregon’s best “under the radar” winemakers go from a very reasonable $40 to a crazy value $21.98 ($19.98/ea by the case)?It’s complicated. But suffice to say that a private label deal that broke down gave us a unique buying opportunity and you the chance to drink a great Oregon Pinot Noir at half-off. Biggio Hamina Pinot Noir Chehalem Mountain 2013 is loaded with bright red cherry and strawberry fruit accented by a touch of spice. A touch of smoked stone and richness makes this a delicious solo sipper and even better with salmon, mushrooms, or poultry off the grill. Open right now - try it!
This one’s pretty simple. If you’re looking for a “go to” value red for summer fun, you’re simply not going to find anything to beat the 2015 Penya Cotes Catalanes Rouge from $8.98!
No hype here: Philippe Plantevin’s 2011 Cotes du Rhone Villages La Daurelle is one of the best Rhone reds you’ll try this year at any price. And, at just $19.98 by the bottle or $17.98/ea by the case, it’s an astounding value, too. We cannot recommend this one highly enough.
Good Burgundy is getting harder and harder to find at prices that won't break the bank. Here are a rich Puligny-Montrachet white and 3 grand wines from Gevrey-Chambertin still flying under the radar and delivering loads of delight at very fair prices.
