“Beautifully done, the 2018 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast has an incredible sense of purity and finesse while packing plenty of classic California fruit. Vivid ruby-hued with a kaleidoscopic array of framboise, spring flowers, charcoal, toasted spices, and damp earth, it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, incredible purity of fruit, integrated acidity, and a great finish. This quintessential Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir is already drinking brilliantly yet will keep for at least 7-8 years.”
Obviously, I can’t tell you all the details of the vineyard source but I can let you in on a few of the details. Crafted using a fruit from 1000-1500 ft in elevation, Chad’s 2019 is cool climate Pinot at its best– especially given the price tag. While similar wines (very similar wines) will fetch a $45 price tag, you can snag it today for half off that price on bottle one.
An elegant, silky smooth Willamette Valley Pinot Noir crafted by Bertrand de Villane of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti fame. It comes from about 700 feet above sea level in the Dundee Hills atop Winter’s Creek and benefitted from cool, breezy nights. With a round, supple mouthfeel and a sturdy backbone this will age gracefully for a decade and a half easy. You can taste that Burgundian touch!

This Pinot was crafted like it came from a master painter. Petaluma Gap for the richness. The darkness and silky tannin provided by the warmer Santa Rosa plains fruit. And then the cherry on top is the rich, deep spice element – provided by a very special lot from the Middle Reach Neighborhood on West Side Road. The result is a spicy, giving Pinot that drinks well above its station due to the quality of the single parcels that were so expertly chosen.
Bourgogne Rouge from the fancy estates of Vosne, Gevrey and Chambolle start at $45 and quickly escalates from there. To find real value, you have to get off the rue nationale. But no estate in Burgundy quite delivers the bang per buck of Lydia Cornu’s fantastic Hautes Côtes de Beaune. Lydia makes old-school red Burgundy; aromatic Pinot Noir, with crunchy, juicy fruit and a sharp vibrancy that makes it just sing with food.
The 2017 Elouan Oregon Pinot Noir is wonderfully ripe, with vibrant flavors of rich cranberry, sweet cinnamon and bright cherry with just a touch of earthiness. It’s packed with fruit and finishes with soft, refined tannins. It’s a great choice for a summer red, delicious by itself or pair with just about anything.

“Bursting with vibrant pink grapefruit and red berry aromas; a complexity of brioche, hibiscus and lime zest with a creamy mousse and an elegant, saline finish.” –Gold Medal Winner, 2019 Decanter World Wine Awards
Anne Sery’s Trousse Chemise heads to the birthplace of Oregon Pinot Noir and perhaps the most revered AVA in the state. With the famous rich, deep Jory soil beneath her feet, Anne’s Dundee Hills Pinot Noir shows a side of Trousse Chemise we haven’t seen as much of before: sheer power. It’s a full-bodied, layered Pinot Noir with strawberry, violet and chocolatey notes meets gentle earthy and campfire aromas, and with a well-refined, smooth finish that makes putting the glass down a tall task.
