Monte Degli Angeli Pinot Noir Monferrato 2016 Product #32690 (In Stock)
Monte Degli Angeli Pinot Noir Monferrato 2016 Monte Degli Angeli Pinot Noir Monferrato 2016

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!

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!

Jackhammer Pinot Noir Monterey County 2015 Product #32306 (In Stock)
Jackhammer Pinot Noir Monterey County 2015 Jackhammer Pinot Noir Monterey County 2015

Check out the back label here - the argument is that a hammer is the right tool for ANY job and that this wine is pretty much the perfect choice for any occasion.  Not sure about the hammer, but we're all-in on the wine!  This is 100% Pinot Noir from Monterey, on California's Central Coast, and the outstanding (for Pinot) 2015 vintage. Perfectly ripe at a very Pinot-like 13.5%, with a just right touch of wood influence and a great, everyday, price, this is built to bring down the house!

Big, fresh, aromas of cherry, plum, cola and a touch of smoke lead to a fresh, sweetly fruited, palate of crushed cherries/berries, spice and earth.  Deliciously unsubtle, it delivers bold flavors without any excess weight and a clean, mouthwatering, finish that will pull your back for more.  Tasting more like $25 than $15, this is a terrific weeknight or party Pinot for this year and next.

Heron Pinot Noir California 2015 Heron Pinot Noir California 2015

Here's a delicious party Pinot Noir that well out-performs the modest price.  Ripe Pinot fruit from Paso Robles, Monterey and the Russian River Valley gets a cool fermentation and then aging in 1 and 2 year-old French oak.  That brings out a lovely richness and very RRV-like candied cherry fruit with accents of cola, spice and pepper.  Nice and round on the palate, there's enough structure here for this to shine with salmon and poultry.

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 small 2016 vintage and still a great deal. Fun stuff.

Love big, bold, "Power Pinot" like Belle Glos or Meiomi?  Then this is going to delight you at a very compelling price.  100% Pinot Noir with a dense, rich, nearly thick, texture.  No hard edges to the plush black raspberry and dark cherry fruit or the velvety smooth tannins.  There's a nice smoky note for interest and plenty of spice.  A fun sipper and fine with salmon,too!

A rarity here:  an easygoing, nicely fruited, actually tastes like Pinot Noir value!  All Willamette Valley fruit in 2015, this shows the ripeness of the vintage in its ripe spiced strawberry, raspberry fruit and nice weight.  Juicy fresh in the middle and through the soft, smooth, finish where spice and baked berry flavors linger. At just 13% abv, not at all heavy but plenty of flavor!

Anton Bauer Pinot Noir Wagram 2015 Product #31942 (In Stock)
Anton Bauer Pinot Noir Wagram 2015 Anton Bauer Pinot Noir Wagram 2015

This is 100% Pinot Noir grown on chalky loess soils warmed by hot winds blowing west from the Pannonian plain and cooled by chilly eastern nighttime breezes from the Alps.  Picked perfectly ripe at a very reasonable 13% alcohol, Tony gently extracts color and flavor during a slow fermentation and then softens and spices the wine with 16 months aging in used oak cask and barrique.

In 2015, Tony’s “basic” Pinot Noir manages something that Pinot does better than any other grape – to marry deep, rich, lush fruit with a silky texture and lovely vibrancy.  It serves up big aromas of spiced raspberry and black cherry with a lovely earthy bass note.  In the mouth it’s not at all heavy or thick, but loaded with intense flavors of crushed raspberry and cherry, Asian spice, smoke, and a hint of herb.  Silky smooth in texture, a just right burst of fresh raspberry acids give lift on the long, lightly tannic, finish.  A Pinot for fans of the best of Oregon, the Sonoma Coast, and Burgundy’s Cote de Beaune. Probably the finest Pinot Noir value in the store...Ever.  Astonishing.

Another classic release for this pioneer of Oregon's Chehalem mountains. A bit richer and broader than in some releases - 2013 was warm before the late rains - with a pretty note of smoky oak.

"Fresh and expressive, light-footed and generous, with cherry, plum and apricot flavors, coming together smoothly on the open-textured finish."Wine Spectator 90 points

Stafford Hill Pinot Noir Willamette Valley 2015 Product #32871 (In Stock)
Stafford Hill Pinot Noir Willamette Valley 2015 Stafford Hill Pinot Noir Willamette Valley 2015

Long-time CBC Pinot fans may remember Bill Holloran's second label, Stafford Hill, although the label is much nicer than the last time we brought it to you.  Back in 2011, the 2009 Stafford Hill Pinot delighted fans of Willamette Valley Pinot Noir at $16.98 by the bottle and $14.98/ea by the case.  While the price has crept up a little over the past 7 years, so has the market - and the quality/value you'll find in your glass.

This is 100% Pinot Noir, mainly from Holloran's  Le Chenaie vineyard in the Eola Hills. This is the volcanic soiled part of the Eola Hills, and you'll smell and taste the same kind of dark, almost smoky, complexity and feel the firm grip you expect from Jory soils further north in the Dundee Hills.  Dark red raspberry and cherry fruit are framed by fine minerality, elegant tannins, and a juicy squirt of raspberry juice acidity.  Delicious now and shining through 2022 at least.  Try it - it's even better than you remember!

Frecciarossa Pinot Nero Sillery (White Pinot Noir) 2016 Frecciarossa Pinot Nero Sillery (White Pinot Noir) 2016

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.

A terrific and excellent value in ripe, fleshy, fun Central Coast Pinot Noir here at an elegant 13.9% abv.  An 18 month stay in just 10% new oak adds spice and smoke notes to the deep aromas and flavors of raspberry, black cherry and blackberry.  There's good energy and freshness to the rich flavors and a long, smooth, easygoing finish of red berry, plum and spice.  A great all-around Cali Pinot!

La Follette Pinot Noir North Coast 2014 Product #32455 (In Stock)
La Follette Pinot Noir North Coast 2014 La Follette Pinot Noir North Coast 2014

As Wine Advocate said a few years ago, "Greg La Follette was one of the pioneers of the Sonoma Coast and he deserves enormous credit for sourcing potentially brilliant vineyard sites throughout the area." This exciting Sonoma Coast Pinot packs the punch of aroma and flavor you'd hope for in a wine twice it's price.  A stellar value.

"The 2014 Pinot Noir (North Coast) is bright, precise and beautifully delineated throughout. Freshly cut flowers, sweet red berries, mint and crushed rocks are some of the many notes that open up in this super-attractive, mid-weight Pinot from Greg LaFollette."  Vinous (Galloni) 91 points

Arterberry Maresh Pinot Noir Dundee Hills 2015 Product #32437 (In Stock)
Arterberry Maresh Pinot Noir Dundee Hills 2015 Arterberry Maresh Pinot Noir Dundee Hills 2015

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.  The 2014 was the first release of the Dundee Hills bottling in a few years.  It was a fine, 90-point, gem that Wine Advocate called “probably the bargain of the vintage."  The 2015 is better.

Oregon’s 2015 vintage looked and felt a lot like 2014 – warm weather, big harvest, bold fruit.  The difference is that the 2015s have better structure and style, both of which are on display here.  You’ll find ripe, dark red, fruit on the nose here with accents of blood orange and subtle smoke.  Wonderfully generous and vivid in the mouth, the dark cherry and plum fruit expands and coats your palate before savory notes of licorice and mushroom come in on the back.  The flavors linger nicely over fine, silky smooth, tannins that promise delight with food and 7-10 years improvement in cellar.  Terrific, delicious, stuff.

A Kermit Lynch Burgundy is going to be natural, pure and compelling - which is what we have here. From 45 year-old vines growing inside the Dijon city limits, this is very Cote de Nuits with pretty red griotte cherry fruit, a touch of earth and blossom, and sneaky length on the palate and the lightly tannic finish.  Very pure and delicious with structure perfect for duck or pate.

Dom Mongeard Mugneret Bourgogne Rouge 2015 Dom Mongeard Mugneret Bourgogne Rouge 2015

Burgundy's 2015 vintage gave us silky, supple, reds with an extra jolt or rich, ripe, fruit and plenty of classic Burgundy terroir.  Here's a great example from 4.5 acres mainly in and near Vosne-Romanee. Ripe, hand-harvested, fruit is 100% destemmed, fermented in tank and then aged in twice-used French oak.  There's a very pretty perfume of ripe red cherry, raspberry, violets and a hint of something earthy - or "animal" as the winemaker says.  On the palate it's very pure and fresh and transparent with a silky feel to the generous cherry/raspberry fruit.  Stony minerality and fine tannins provide support to this very pretty, very delicious, Pinot Noir.  Drink now - 2020 or so.

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.

A lovely introduction to Charles Magnien’s winemaking style and the glory of vintage 2015.  The fruit was fully destemmed, fermented in tank, and aged 10 months in 2nd and 3rd  use barrels.  It’s a captivating blend of richness and elegance, with a spicy perfume and generous doses of ripe red raspberry and fresh cherry fruit.  A hint of Gevrey character comes up on the mid-palate and finish, where fine tannins provide support.  Rich without excess weight and directly delicious – as a good Bourgogne should be! – this will make a wonderful 2015 red Burgundy house wine for the next 7 or so years.

The cool, ocean-influenced, Santa Cruz Mountains give some of California's most excitingly fresh Pinot Noirs.  This is a beauty.  The aromas are loaded with sweet and savory spice to go with the wild strawberry and fresh cherry fruit.  With air, the perfume just gets prettier as rose petal and black pepper join the show and lend complexity to the ripe red fruit and spice flavors.  Finishes fresh and ripe, with fruit and flowers lingering nicely.
