Monte Degli Angeli Pinot Noir Monferrato 2015 Product #30859 (In Stock)
Monte Degli Angeli Pinot Noir Monferrato 2015 Monte Degli Angeli Pinot Noir Monferrato 2015

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!

Dom Brunet Pinot Noir Pays D' Oc 2015 Product #31504 (In Stock)
Dom Brunet Pinot Noir Pays D' Oc 2015 Dom Brunet Pinot Noir Pays D' Oc 2015

A whole lot of Pinot Noir for the money here, marrying French elegance with New World ripeness.  Sweetly fruited with notes of baked cherry and dark raspberry plus added complexity from doses of earthy mineral and warm spice.  Spiced raspberry and black cherry flavors linger on the soft, supple, finish with just enough bite for shape and structure.  In 2015, shows even more weight and richness but stays fresh and easy-drinking from beginning to end. Fun stuff and great value!

Beau Chene Pinot Noir Vdp 2015 Product #31405 (In Stock)
Beau Chene Pinot Noir Vdp 2015 Beau Chene Pinot Noir Vdp 2015

Pinot Noir from the South of France has gotten a bit of a bad name (even when it is, in fact, Pinot Noir!), but when done well it can be delicious and stunning value.  And that's what we have here.  Nice and fleshy with plenty of ripe plum, cherry and red berry fruit aromas and flavors with hints of spice and earth. Finishes with friendly tannins and lingering flavors of spice, red fruit and earth.  A surprising amount of complexity and flesh here for the money in a fine, honest, tasty Pinot you'll enjoy with salmon, poultry, or just hanging out with friends.  Excellent value.

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 2015 Block Nine Caiden's Vyd Pinot Noir 2015

This has been one of Robert Parker's favorite "value" Pinot Noirs over the past few years; as he said of the 2013, "An authentic tasting Pinot Noir that sells for a song...Aromas of sweet red and black cherry fruit intermixed with clove and baking spices are offered in a medium-bodied, earthy, soft, silky style." Another solid release in the fine 2015 vintage and still a great deal. Fun stuff.

Nice richness here to go with Oregon's classic elegance.  Pretty and delicious for salmon or even beef.

"All five vineyards contribute to this widely available blend. It's on the chunky side, with blocky black cherry and a frame of milk chocolate from aging 10 months in French oak. There's a dash of spice as it races through the finish."Wine Enthusiast 89 points

Battle Creek Unconditional Pinot Noir 2014 Battle Creek Unconditional Pinot Noir 2014

You get to choose how you look at this one.  It's 100% Oregon fruit with 20% from the Willamette Valley and the generous 2014 vintage, so you'll a nice dose of Oregon purity and finesse. But the vintage and warmer fruit sources in Oregon's south give this the plushness, ripe red cherry and raspberry fruit, and a creamy, rich, texture that recalls Sonoma's Russian River.  However you look at it, this is a screaming deal in drink right now, very pinot-y Pinot Noir, that will thrill a crowd at your next party and satisfy anyone at table with salmon,  poultry, or any dish with plenty of mushroom!

Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Pinot Nero 2015 Product #31302 (In Stock)
Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Pinot Nero 2015 Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Pinot Nero 2015

Pinot Nero from the high altitude, but surprisingly warm, vineyards around Bolzano has never been better than in the stunning 2015 harvest.  Kaltern is a super-premium co-op winery that sources it's Pinot Noir from vineyards looking down over Lake Kaltern.  In 2015, the grapes ripened to an extra level of richness and complexity, both of which were captured and nurtured perfectly through a slow fermentation and 7 months aging in large and small oak cask.  The color is a dense cherry red and the aromas ripe red cherry, raspberry, and a hint of fragrant summer flowers.  On the palate there's good richness but modest weight - a pretty 13% abv here - with layers of cherry/red berry fruit, sweet spice, and fresh turned earth that keep on flowing through a long, supple, finish.  It's a bit like a 2014 Willamette Valley Pinot but still definitely Italian.  An outstanding Pinot Noir value and a great selection for a crowd.

Sancerre just might be the benchmark for rosé made from Pinot Noir, and this is certainly a benchmark Sancerre pink.  100% Pinot Noir from vineyards in Chavignol, it serves up fresh sweet cherry and ripe strawberry fruit enlivened by a twist of lemon peel and herb.  Finishing pretty and fresh and nicely dry, this will be delicious with smoked salmon bites, mild paté, and just lounging in the sun.

Ch De Vaux Les Hautes-Bassieres Pinot Noir Moselle 2014 Product #31064 (In Stock)
Ch De Vaux Les Hautes-Bassieres Pinot Noir Moselle 2014 Ch De Vaux Les Hautes-Bassieres Pinot Noir Moselle 2014

Moselle, along the Mosel River before it flows into Germany, was once a rival to Champagne.  The Franco-Prussian war, phylloxera, and WWI and II took a heavy toll, and today this region along the border with Luxembourg is pretty obscure. But, Norbert and Marie-Geneviève Molozay recognized the region's potential (especially in an era of warming climate), and launched Ch de Vaux in 1996 to prove it.

Pour a glass of this and you’ll immediately notice a good deal more color than you’d expect from such a cool climate.  The nose delivers on the promise of richness and depth with complex aromas of raspberry, dark cherry, wood smoke, and forest underbrush flowing out of the glass.  On the palate, it does just what a great Thanksgiving (or Christmas!) red should.  There’s more than enough ripe fruit to survive the onslaught of Thanksgiving dinner flavors with smoky/savory accents that will highlight stuffing and autumn vegetable sides.  The tang of fresh cranberry on the finish evokes the dish of Aunt Martha’s sauce and, more importantly, refreshes your palate and gets you ready for the next forkful.  Delicious, if obscure, and excellent value!

Fossil Point Pinot Noir Edna Valley 2014 Product #30943 (In Stock)
Fossil Point Pinot Noir Edna Valley 2014 Fossil Point Pinot Noir Edna Valley 2014

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.

The 2014 edition is simply superb, about as fine a California Pinot Noir value as we've seen in years.  Loads of sweet, ripe, red and black fruit on the nose and palate with a kick of smoke and sweet spice from 14 months in French oak.  A blood orange note comes out with air, lending freshness to match the classic California richness before the sweet spice and dark fruit come up on the long, pure, finish.  Really, really, good stuff.

Frecciarossa Pinot Nero Sillery (White Pinot Noir) 2015 Product #31202 (In Stock)
Frecciarossa Pinot Nero Sillery (White Pinot Noir) 2015 Frecciarossa Pinot Nero Sillery (White Pinot Noir) 2015

Sure, we admit it - this caught our attention because it's a rare white wine made from black-skinned Pinot Noir and "Pinot Nero Bianco" is fun to say.  And because it's from Oltrepo Pavese, a stunning slice of Lombardy south of Milan famous for rich wines in Roman times and known as Italy's top Pinot Noir region today.

It landed on our shelves because it's drop dead gorgeous!  Aromas and flavors of white peach, crushed strawberry, Rainer cherry and fresh herb are inviting and complex, and the rich, polished, texture and long finish are deeply satisfying.  A great wine for rich seafood dishes (think scallop risotto) or sophisticated sipping.  A bit of a rarity that may be gone too soon - grab it now while you can.

Arterberry Maresh Pinot Noir Dundee Hills 2014 Product #31088 (In Stock)
Arterberry Maresh Pinot Noir Dundee Hills 2014 Arterberry Maresh Pinot Noir Dundee Hills 2014

6 cases available.  Jim Maresh’s focus is on single vineyard Pinot Noir, so in most years, he sells off any barrels or lots that don’t make it into the final single vineyard cuvee.  In excellent years, though, that wine is just too good to part with, so he supplements it with fruit from neighbors and bottles this wine:  the Dundee Hills cuvee.  You’ll get a great introduction to the Arterberry Maresh style here, with fine concentration and excellent purity – in a wine that is, as Wine Advocate says, “probably the bargain of the vintage."

"The 2014 Pinot Noir Dundee Hills is a blend of Maresh, Juliard, Weber, Gehrts and Folie Hill vineyards. It has a fresh and vibrant bouquet with red cherry and wild strawberry fruit, touches of blood orange with fine delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin - a mixture here of red and black fruit, meaty in style with a Pommard-like finish that lingers in the mouth. For $25, it's probably the bargain of the vintage."Wine Advocate 90 points

St Innocent Pinot Noir Willamette Villages Cuvee 2014 Product #31271 (In Stock)
St Innocent Pinot Noir Willamette Villages Cuvee 2014 St Innocent Pinot Noir Willamette Villages Cuvee 2014

Always one of the greatest values in Willamette Valley Pinot Noir, the 2014 is the best in years, perhaps better than the Wine Spectator 92 point 2008.  In 2014 the vineyard sources read like a who’s who of great sites:  Zenith, Vitae Spring, Temperance Hill, Freedom Hill, Momtazi Vineyard and even the legendary “Grand Cru” Shea Vineyard.  A warm fermentation and gentle pump-overs extract richness and give the wine a velvet feel.  A year in mostly used oak rounds off the edges and adds just a touch of subtle spice.

The result is a sophisticated, velvety, and layered wine that puts many more expensive bottlings to shame!  You’ll find loads of fresh cherry, dark berry, ground spice, and subtle anise aromas and generous flavors of wild berries and cherries, spice and fresh flowers.  The wine envelops your palate with deeply earthy richness, but stays light and pure and fresh through a finished laced with just-picked fruit, spice, and fine tannins.  Beautiful right now through 2021 with everything from white meats to meaty fish (salmon, tuna) and rich lentil or bean dishes.  Delicious value!

"A sensational value, this blends fruit from a half-dozen vineyards that carry the winery's vineyard designates. Soft and appealing flavors mix citrus, plum and berry in a juicy, wide open, flat out delicious bottle. The fruit is the star, although a year in 9% new French oak adds a nice touch of toast."Wine Enthusiast 91 points

Macrostie Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast 2013 Product #31342 (In Stock)
Macrostie Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast 2013 Macrostie Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast 2013

BIG value here - best Pinot in the store under $30 right now.  Ripe and vibrant red berry fruit with lift from cranberry and pomegranate accents.  Lots of dark, spicy, fruit on the palate and right on through the long, smoky, finish.  An outstanding all-purpose Pinot for sipping, rich foods, and entertaining.

"The winery's larger production offering, this is made from a handful of vineyards, including many used in vineyard-designates. Blending prowess shows in this wine that explodes in plum and clove. Tight, bright acid buoys flavors of strawberry, cranberry and orange, with a twisted funk of earth on the finish."Wine Enthusiast 91 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!

The small but very nice 2015 vintage gave us ripe but nicely fresh Pinot's from this part of California, and this is a great example.  Pretty plum and wild strawberry aromas add notes of spice and chocolate with air.  The aromas carry over to the nicely rich but still elegant Pinot that finishes silky and smooth.  Will take a light chill if you like and very fine value.

The Talbott family's Sleepy Hollow Vyyd has been recognized as among the best in Santa Lucia Highlands for years. In 2014, it turned out a powerhouse Pinot, big and rich with dark red fruit, sweet spice, and accents of smoky, caramelized, oak.  The spice and red berry flavors linger nicely on a finish that stays fresh and clean. Plenty of power, no excess weight or heat.

Guillon Bourgogne Rouge Les Graviers 2014 Product #30573 (In Stock)
Guillon Bourgogne Rouge Les Graviers 2014 Guillon Bourgogne Rouge Les Graviers 2014

Les Graviers is one of the best Pinot Noir vineyards lying just outside the bounds of village Chambolle Musigny.  Both Frederic Magnien and Domaine Ponsot base their Bourgogne rouge on Graviers, with Ponsot’s usually selling for $40-$50 (if you can find it).  Jean Michel used the young vines from this vineyard for cremant, but now that they're mature, all the fruit from Les Graviers goes into make one brilliant Bourgogne Rouge – a wine that’s very much a “baby Chambolle Musigny!”

In Jean Michel's outstanding 2014, the lovely aromas of crushed griotte (cherry), red raspberry and wild strawberry get richer and more complex as the wine unfurls with air, a touch of fresh leather emerges, and the nutty, toasty, oak fades into the background.  The palate is much more rich, plush, and luscious than the 12.5% alcohol suggest, with lovely ripeness to the juicy red currant, raspberry and tangy cherry fruit.  Chambolle-Muisgny terroir and 50% new oak work together to provide accents of iron ore, coffee, and fresh earth.  This has excellent length on the palate and finish for Bourgogne.  A fantastic Bourgogne of true Village character to drink now and over the next 5-8 years.

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
