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

A long-time favorite value Pinot Noir returns to form and the shelf!  From the region just outside of Barolo, this is full of fresh red berry aromas and flavors with a touch of fresh earth and floral accents.  Fresh and easy from first sip to the food friendly finish. The Manderin Oriental in DC used to serve this at $12 per glass - we like it even better at this price!

Silver Ridge Pinot Noir California 2012 Product #29234 (In Stock)
Silver Ridge Pinot Noir California 2012 Silver Ridge Pinot Noir California 2012

The best thing about big harvests in great years like 2012 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 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!

Block Nine Caiden's Vyd Pinot Noir 2014 Product #29574 (In Stock)
Block Nine Caiden's Vyd Pinot Noir 2014 Block Nine Caiden's Vyd Pinot Noir 2014

This has been one of Robert Parker's favorite "value" Pinot Noirs over the past few years; as he said of the 2013, "Readers looking for an authentic tasting Pinot Noir that sells for a song should check out Block 9. Aromas of sweet red and black cherry fruit intermixed with clove and baking spices are offered in a medium-bodied, earthy, soft, silky style. This amazing Pinot Noir sells for a price that is virtually unheard of for this varietal." Fun stuff.

Catherine et Michel Langlois Pinot Noir Val De Loire 2013 Product #29749 (In Stock)
Catherine et Michel Langlois Pinot Noir Val De Loire 2013 Catherine et Michel Langlois Pinot Noir Val De Loire 2013

One of the more delicious summer-weight Pinot Noirs we've run across recently, and certainly the best value.  If you enjoy Sancerre Rouge (at one-third the price), then Catherine and Michel Langlois's elegant Pinot will be right up your alley.  It's from Pougny, not far from Sancerre, in the Loire Valley and opens with aromas of black tea and ripe red fruits that carry on through the pure, stony, palate and long, generous, finish.  Give it a chill and take it out on a picnic or serve it a bit warmer with pate, ripe cheeses, or even duck.

Grochau Cellars Pinot Noir Commuter Cuvee 2013 Product #28814 (In Stock)
Grochau Cellars Pinot Noir Commuter Cuvee 2013 Grochau Cellars Pinot Noir Commuter Cuvee 2013

John Grochau’s easy-drinking, early release, Pinot Noir Commuter Cuvee always gives us a nice preview of the vintage to come, and his 2013 leaves us feeling very excited indeed.  John’s hands-off approach to winemaking (“Don’t screw it up” is his motto) and light use of new oak (just 10% here) lets classic Pinot cherry fruit and accents of cranberry, fresh earth, flower petal, and spice shine through clear as a bell.  The fruit shows some of the dark richness found in Willamette’s last hot vintage (2009), but with better freshness and a light, silky, texture that makes this wonderfully easy to drink.  Fantastic value in handcrafted Willamette Valley Pinot Noir!

Vista Hills Pinot Noir Willamette Valley 2013 Product #29547 (In Stock)
Vista Hills Pinot Noir Willamette Valley 2013 Vista Hills Pinot Noir Willamette Valley 2013

From four different blocks of Vista Hills’ Dundee Hills estate, this is a great example of the charm and richness you’ll find in the best 2013 Willamette Valley Pinot Noirs (and a screaming value, too!).  The estate’s Jory soils easily shed the big dose of late-September rains, allowing the fruit to process the extra water and hang until full ripeness (at 13.3% abv) in early October.  The grapes where hand harvested, sorted twice – in the vineyard and again at the winery – and then aged 14 months in all used French oak to produce 818 cases of lovely, pure, Pinot.

You’ll get 2013’s warm ripeness on the nose, with spicy, earthy, scents of rich black cherry, cranberry, fresh flowers and a hint of blood orange.  On the palate the wine is surprisingly rich and weighty, but with fine transparency and freshness, too.  Complex flavors of cherry, candied cranberry, orange zest, and strawberry are framed by notes of spice, smoke, and earth.  The sweet fruit flavors carry on through the gentle finish where you’ll get a burst of cranberry, cherry and blood orange supported by fresh acids and soft, supple, tannins.  This is a LOT of wine for the money.

Fossil Pinot Noir Edna Valley 2013 Product #29629 (In Stock)
Fossil Pinot Noir Edna Valley 2013 Fossil Pinot Noir Edna Valley 2013

Fossil Point is named for the rugged headland in San Luis Obispo County which features sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean and Central Coast. These cool coastal vineyards are perfect for Pinot Noir, allowing plenty of ripeness while retaining freshness and fine acidity.  After 14 months in French oak, this opens with pretty aromas of ripe cherry, strawberry, rose petal and cedar.  Round and supple in the mouth, the juicy flavors of black cherry and raspberry gain complexity from a dash of sweet spice and leave a dark cola note lingering.

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.

Heron Pinot Noir Monterey 2013 Product #29890 (In Stock)
Heron Pinot Noir Monterey 2013 Heron Pinot Noir Monterey 2013

A nicely ripe California Pinot Noir that's remarkably fleshy at just 13% abv.  Earthy red fruits gain complexity from notes of cola and wood spice and stay fresh and clean through the long, lightly structured, finish.

"Globe-trotting Laely Heron’s take on roughly 16-year-old vines in Monterey reveals aromas of Coca Cola, black cherry, ripe plum, sweet beet juice and a bit of tree bark. The palate is powered by anise-spiced cherries and pomegranate, fairly straightforward but quite quaffable."Wine Enthusiast 89 points

Girardin Bourgogne Rouge Cuvee Saint-Vincent 2012 Product #29277 (In Stock)
Girardin Bourgogne Rouge Cuvee Saint-Vincent 2012 Girardin Bourgogne Rouge Cuvee Saint-Vincent 2012

The care, effort and expense that Domaine Vincent Girardin invested in this beautiful Bourgogne Rouge certainly could command a much higher price. 40+ year-old vines, biodynamic farming, extensive handwork in the vineyard, and triple sorting to ensure only the best fruit makes it into the fermenter are all standard here. After a 3 week fermentation and maceration, the wine aged for 10 months in 500 liter French oak barrels.  Larger barrels and just 10% new wood allowed the wine to soften and gain layers of depth and complexity without compromising the pure, lovely, fruit that makes the best 2011 red Burgundies so irresistible.

Even at this young age, you'll already find a sweet and savory perfume of red berries, fresh earth, and dried tobacco wafting from your glass. The palate is richly textured, vibrant, and very pure with generous flavors of dark cherry, black raspberry, walnut, coffee, and a touch of earth. The complex flavors continue on the long finish where supple tannins provide support and the black fruit, coffee, and tobacco notes linger.  Absolutely delicious right now, but sure to keep improving over the next five years or so.

Rovero Lajetto Pinot Nero 2010 Product #29390 (In Stock)
Rovero Lajetto Pinot Nero 2010 Rovero Lajetto Pinot Nero 2010

Pinot Noir has excellent potential in Piemonte's foggy, rolling, hills, with warm summer days driving nice ripeness and cool nights and poor soils helping to retain freshness and grace.  Lajetto is a fine example, a rich, ripe, and really delicious Pinot Noir with just a touch of Nebbiolo style.  Grown on the family’s estate in Asti, this gets extra body and depth from 12 months in small oak barrels.  There’s a nice spice to the dark red fruit and just a touch of Nebbiolo-like tar and roses and finishes smooth and velvety.

Do yourself, and your pocketbook, a favor and check them out." This not-yet reviewed Borgogne shows just how delicious they are.  Expressive, ripe, and sophisticated, it's all about plump black cherry, raspberry, and roasted strawberry fruit with accents of berry blossom, smoke, hot stones, fresh earth, and more.  Sweetly fruited, supple, and delicious right now.

Everything to love about Oregon’s 2013 harvest is on display in this utterly delicious Pinot Noir from Evesham Wood’s Erin Nuccio.  Bright, fresh, aromas of sweet cherry, strawberry, mineral and spice waft from the glass.  Take a sip and you’ll feel a tingle of focused acidity on the tip of your tongue before sweet cherry, red berry, orange peel, and black tea flavors race across your palate.  The interplay of the sweet fruit at the wine’s core and the surrounding bright pomegranate, orange zest, and spice accents is simply lovely and captivating.  Finishes juicy and elegant with a subtle meaty/savory note riding under the fresh berry fruit.  Easy to drink right now and sure to improve for 3-4 years – if you can wait!

To sip or share with salmon, duck, and pork.

From the heart of New Zealand's best Pinot Noir territory, Central Ontago, this beauty delivers some of the ripe fruit you'd expect from California with the zest and focus of a cooler Willamette Valley wine.  Dark red and black cherry fruit gets complexity from notes of fresh earth, warm stone, and wood smoke.  Gets richer with a little air as cola and spice notes grow, but stays fresh and clean on the fine-grained finish.
