Monte Degli Angeli Pinot Noir Monferrato 2014 Product #29656 (In Stock)
Monte Degli Angeli Pinot Noir Monferrato 2014 Monte Degli Angeli Pinot Noir Monferrato 2014

You've got to be willing to think a bit outside the box to find real, honest, Pinot Noir selling for less than $10 these days.  Here we head to Italy's Piemonte region - more famous for Barolo and Barbaresco - to a small family-owned estate run by Brothers Antonio and Paolo Sperone.  The climate here is closer to Burgundy than you'd expect, and it lets the Sperones harvest ripe, juicy, Pinot Noir fruit and then give it 6 months in barrel to soften and gain complexity.  Black cherry and strawberry fruit hold center stage here with accents of smoke and fresh earth.  Juicy in the middle and supported by light, fine, tannin, this is a steal in value Pinot Noir that tastes like...well, Pinot Noir!

Silver Ridge Pinot Noir California 2013 Product #30468 (In Stock)
Silver Ridge Pinot Noir California 2013 Silver Ridge Pinot Noir California 2013

The best thing about big harvests in great years like 2013 is how many top-notch "little" wines get made.  Here you'll find generous aromas of cherry, cranberry and mint leading to flavors of maraschino cherry, plum, and red berry with just a hint of spice and orange blossom. The light, fresh, texture, soft tannins, and juicy acids make this a delicious quaffer, although there's enough support for it to work with salmon or pork.  Outstanding value in balanced, easygoing, Pinot Noir.

Hillinger Secco NV Product #20714 (In Stock)
Hillinger Secco NV Hillinger Secco NV

Gently sparkling with fine fruit: that's the Hillinger Secco, the winery's light pink creation of 100% Pinot Noir grapes. This is easily the best (and most dry) release yet. Pretty in the glass and loaded with aromas and flavors of tangy strawberry, cranberry and cherry fruit.  Juicy and refreshingly dry on the tangy finish, this would be a great brunch or warm afternoon drink!

Poppy Pinot Noir Santa Lucia Highlands 2013 Product #30208 (In Stock)
Poppy Pinot Noir Santa Lucia Highlands 2013 Poppy Pinot Noir Santa Lucia Highlands 2013

Who says you can't find good value in balanced, delicious, California Pinot Noir!  This gem from cool vineyards in the Central Coast's Arroyo Seco gets a pretty luxurious treatment.  The grapes are harvested by hand and come to the winery cool.  After crush, fermentation starts and stays cool and slow to preserve plenty of fruit with gentle pump-overs to extract color and structure.  Then, into French oak barrels to age for 10 months or so, allowing the wine to come together and harmonize.

Give it swirl and you'll enjoy the classic Pinot scents of dark cherry, raspberry, fresh earth and spice.  In your mouth, the flavors spread out nicely with good energy and breadth, but never get heavy or clunky - just 13.5% abv and good acidity helps.  The dark berry, spice and smoke flavors flow through the generous, crisp, finish with berry and caramel notes lingering nicely.  Fresh, generous, easy-drinking, and well priced.

Very pure, with generous fruit and a food-friendly structure. "

"With its attractive aromas and flavors of ripe cherries and subtle notes of pine and dried mint, this wine is immediately accessible without being simple. Likewise, in terms of texture, it’s sturdy enough to last a few years, but not so tough as to be off-putting. Complex, flavorful and supple."Wine Enthusiast 90 points

Cristom Pinot Noir Willamette Mt. Jefferson 2012 375ml Product #29647 (In Stock)
Cristom Pinot Noir Willamette Mt. Jefferson 2012 375ml Cristom Pinot Noir Willamette Mt. Jefferson 2012 375ml

An Oregon classic, with 40% whole-cluster fruit used in the great 2012 vintage.

"The 2012 Mt Jefferson Cuvée Pinot Noir comes from vines located above the winery augmented by purchased fruit from notable vineyards. It contains around 40% whole-cluster fruit (one of the central tenets at Cristom), and only undergoes one racking during its 12 months in barrel: one just before filtration and then just before bottling. It has an attractive tertiary/woodland-scented bouquet with dried rose petal notes coming through, much less fruit driven than many other 2012 Pinot Noirs. The palate is medium-bodied with a gentle grip on the entry. It is quite sappy in style with crisp black fruit rather than red, leading to a focused, slightly austere, tobacco-tinged and saline finish. I would afford this a year in bottle for this "classic" style of Oregon Pinot."Wine Advocate 89 points

Dom de l'Eveche Bourgogne Rouge Clos de l'Eveche 2013 Product #29797 (In Stock)
Dom de l'Eveche Bourgogne Rouge Clos de l'Eveche 2013 Dom de l'Eveche Bourgogne Rouge Clos de l'Eveche 2013

With its gentle slope down the hill from the winery, the clay limestone soils of Clos de l'Eveche drain beautifully and give the 25 year-old vines plenty of sunshine.  Vincent Jouissier treats the lovely fruit with care, allowing it to ferment and soak slowly over 14 days before aging the wine for a full year in French oak casks.  It’s the kind of care and quality you’d expect from a much more expensive Pinot Noir!

Bright currant, crisp Bing cherry, tangy raspberry, warm spice, and just a touch of smoke waft from the glass and pull you in to taste.  The palate follows the aromas, with a juicy freshness that makes balances and highlights the sweet richness of the raspberry, cherry, and red currant fruit.  The touch of tank, hint of fresh earth, and river stone minerality marks this clearly as Burgundy, but the super silky texture and sweetness of fruit will seduce fans of Willamette Valley Pinot Noir, too.  The finish is simply lovely for such a young wine, with crushed raspberry, sun-warmed strawberry, and tangy dried cranberry fruit pulsing out over mouthwatering acids and very fine, very ripe and sweet, tannins.  Right now – especially with a light chill – this is a brilliant wine for a sophisticated summer picnic, but give it air or a little cellar time (it’ll go 5 years easily), and you’ll enjoy it with richer foods like salmon, roast chicken, or duck.

Vista Hills Pinot Noir Willamette Valley 2014 Product #30256 (In Stock)
Vista Hills Pinot Noir Willamette Valley 2014 Vista Hills Pinot Noir Willamette Valley 2014

You’re getting the whole high-end Willamette Valley Pinot Noir package here at a remarkably good price.  It’s 100% estate grown fruit from the Dundee Hills, hand harvested, double sorted, and aged in used French oak.  And, it’s from a great Willamette Valley vintage, one that could easily match 2008 and 2012 and possibly surpass them both.

Of course, what really matters is what you find in the glass, and you’ll find plenty to love here!  Give it 15 minutes of air to wake up, and you’ll be greeted with lovely aromas of ripe cherry, sweet black raspberry, fresh flowers, and a bit of damp earth.  The ripe red fruit flavors are sweet and fresh and complemented by notes of warm spice and a hint of smoke.  The texture is supremely silky and smooth, with good richness across the mid-palate before juicy cherry/berry acids and light, sweet, tannins provide lift and support.  Wonderfully pure and elegant but more than fruit-filled and punchy enough to sing with holiday meals.  Just 1,000 or so cases made, though, so it won’t last long.

Want to taste why folks are so excited about Oregon's big 2014 vintage?  You'll find rich aromas of juicy red raspberry, baked strawberry, and baking spice that really pop from the glass.  Light but nicely creamy on the palate, where the fruit turns more tangy with tart raspberry, pie cherry and cranberry flavors accented by notes of spice, earth, and white pepper.  Fun to drink right now, with good supporting tannin and acidity that won't get in the way of casual sipping.  And, a great value!

Talley's value Pinot is fresh, clean, and pumps out plenty of ripe fruit and sweet spice. A fine value.

"High-pitched red berry and floral pastille scents show a spicy overtone. On the palate, peppery redcurrant and strawberry flavors deepen and stretch out with air while retaining an urgent character. Closes clean and lively, leaving a subtly sweet red berry note behind."  Vinous (Reynolds) 89 points

Always a very fine value, Pali's "Bluffs" Pinot Noir delivers a classic, balanced, expression of this great Pinot Noir region.  Aromas and flavors of ripe berries, candied black cherry, and blueberry fruit are surrounded by accents of fresh earth and sweet spice.  Finishes long with plenty of earthy fruit over light, fine-grained, tannins and nicely integrated acidity.  A winner!

Grochau Cellars Pinot Noir Willamette 2012 Product #30007 (In Stock)
Grochau Cellars Pinot Noir Willamette 2012 Grochau Cellars Pinot Noir Willamette 2012

John Grochau sources fruit for this multi-vineyard Pinot Noir from organic and sustainably farmed vineyards up and down Willamette Valley.  In 2012 he made under 1,000 cases with about 30% whole cluster and around one-quarter new oak.

At first very spicy on the nose with notes of cinnamon, cardamom, and coriander weaving in and out of the black cherry and raspberry fruit, getting more sauve and integrated with a little air.  The texture is simply beautiful, with a pure, silky, mouthfeel, fine length, and long, supple, dusty tannins at the end.  The Bing cherry, raspberry and very ripe strawberry fruit flavors are nicely complicated by accents of sweet spice and fresh earth that linger nicely on the juicy, spicy, finish.  Delicious right now, better next year, and delicious through 2019 or so.

"Brilliant red. Red berries, fresh rose and smoky Indian spices on the pungent nose. Chewy and sharply focused, displaying good lift and spine to its ripe cherry and raspberry flavors, with a peppery element emerging with air. Turns sweeter on the finish, which features dusty tannins and a touch of cola."  Vinous (Reynolds) 90 points

Denis Carre is an exciting, if still somewhat under the radar - Cote de Beaune winemaker that you are going to want to get to know.  This lovely Savigny-les-Beaune from old vines delivers both deep, earthy, richness and vivid, bright, freshness.  Aromas of black and red cherry, fresh earth, and warm spice get more generous and full with air.  The flavors start off earthy and meaty with sweet cherry, cranberry, and raspberry fruit emerging and firm tannins turning sweet and supple.  Decant and drink now with duck or red meat and let some soften and gain more sweetness over the next 5 years.

Another tiny production, distinctive, and very fine value Pinot Noir from this under-the-radar estate in the Willamette Valley's Dundhee Hills.  Marylhurst is all Dijon clone (115 and 667) from the estate's oldest vines, delivering the power and intenstity to handle 18 months in 20% new French oak.  Earth and spice are the themes here, with dark cherry, Damson plum, and cranberry fruit framed by deep, dark, earth notes and accents of cinnamon and toast. Generous right now, this is a fine bottle to enjoy with grilled salmon or roast pork.

Guillon Bourgogne Rouge Les Graviers 2013 Product #29375 (In Stock)
Guillon Bourgogne Rouge Les Graviers 2013 Guillon Bourgogne Rouge Les Graviers 2013

Les Graviers is one of the best Pinot Noir vineyards lying just outside the bounds of village Chambolle Musigny. The essence of Chambolle is perfume, and you’ll find oodles of it here with generous scents of griotte cherry, raspberry, smoke, earth, and more wafting from the glass.  It’s the most elegant Bourgogne we’ve seen from Jean-Michel to date, but lacks nothing in intensity, with pure fruit puree, warm spice, and fresh earth flavors coating the palate and sailing on through the long, luscious, finish.  Beautiful with salmon, roast chicken or duck now and sure to pick up more earthy mushroom notes with age.

"A perfumed and very pretty nose combines notes of both red and dark berries along with plenty of earth and sandalwood nuances. There is good vibrancy to the delicious middle weight flavors that possess fine delineation on the lightly mineral-inflected finale. I like the complexity and while this could be enjoyed young there is enough material present to suggest 2 to 4 years of upside development potential."Allen Meadows 86-88 points

A classy, medium-bodied, Pinot Noir mainly from Talley's Rosemary's and Rincon Vineyards with 13 months in 30% new oak.  There's a lovely floral element to the red berry and spice core.

"Intense aromas of fresh red berries and rose oil, plus suggestions of blood orange and dusty minerals. Silky and fine-grained, offering nervy raspberry and bitter cherry flavors and a hint of candied rose. Delicate and precise but also deep, with gentle tannins building slowly on the long, sharply focused finish."  Vinous (Reynolds) 92 points

From an estate established in 1935 that made first red and white still wines, then sparkling Cremant, and now - with the new generation - is moving back to still wine production.  And very good still wine it is!  This is a delicious, ready young, bistro-style red Burgundy with plenty of pretty Pinot Noir fruit - cherry, red berry - plus just a touch of earth and spice for complexity.  Easy to drink, but with true Burgundy minerality and cut.  Excellent value.

As Burghound sais, this is just classic Chassagne Rouge that is enjoyable right now (decant for an hour) and will be at peak in 2018 or so.  Decant the wine, roast a chicken, and be very happy.

"An expressive, even perfumed nose features notes of pepper, red currant, cassis and plenty of pungent earth character that can also be found on the supple, round and agreeably vibrant middle weight flavors. There is good intensity and lovely detail to the moderately firm and rustic finish that is both well-balanced and persistent. A classic Chassagne rouge."Allen Meadows 89 points

Patty makes several different wines from her 30 acre estate vineyard – each reflecting different clones, soil types, sun exposures, and vine ages found across the vineyard.  This bottling is from 5 different blocks of vines, all 23-29 years-old.  It’s mainly Pommard clone, which gives the wine a meaty, savory, character and plenty of depth and red fruit brilliance. Delicious right now, this will continue improving for 8-10 years.

"Vivid red. Powerful, spice-accented aromas of red and dark berries and pungent flowers, along with suggestions of underbrush, licorice and woodsmoke. Fresh and precise on the palate, offering gently sweet raspberry and mulberry flavors and a touch of candied rose. Shows very good tenacity and cut on the long, sappy finish, which is given shape by subtle tannins."  Vinous (Reynolds) 92 points
