A Pinot usually exclusively for top restaurants throughout the country, the Anthill Farms North Coast Pinot Noir is a NV blend from their top wines from Sonoma Coast, Anderson Valley with a smidge of Comptche. It’s medium bodied, red ruby to the rim with inviting aromas of red cherry, plum, apple pie and cinnamon. As one of the hottest Pinot Noir producers in the US over the last decade, the winemakers of Anthill Farms have been called the rock stars of Pinot Noir.
97 Points, James Suckling
“This starts out with a more savory, earthy and spicy expression and has a gently meaty edge to the nose with a vibrant, exotic feel. Violets and wild herbs abound with forest wood and sous bois – very complex already. The palate has a very tautly composed feel with acidity really adding spark to dense, powerful tannins. Red and dark cherries abound and there’s a floral and mineral thread of flavor. Salty too, like samphire and nasturtium. Striking wine.” – James Suckling
Maggie Harrison (formerly Sine Qua Non) makes the 2016 Antica Terra Coriolis Pinot Noir, an intricate blend that is crafted by picking select barrels from here Antikythera, Ceras and Botanica Pinot Noirs. Each are AVA specific Pinot Noirs that retail for $120/each and consistently garner several 95+ pt scores. Drawn from two of the best vineyards in the state (Shea and Seven Springs) – this is a Pinot for the ages at an incredible price.
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!
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.
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.
