This morning I woke up to one of those secret deals so here I sit at lunch – sweating gravy – and offering one of the best Pinot Noirs for the price – for 24 Hours Only. You’ve probably heard my rant about how David Bynum is uniquely positioned to provide better QPR than just about anybody in the game. We were lucky enough to offer his David Ramey-made Chardonnay back in October and many of you took advantage.
Today’s offer is even sweeter. The 2017 Russian River Pinot at the outrageous price of just $21.15 per bottle when you add it into a case is an absolute steal and the perfect accompaniment for next week’s Turkey dinner.
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 spicy and generous Pinot that drinks well above its station due to the quality of the single parcels that were so expertly chosen. 92 points and a Best Buy designate from W&S Magazine. With today’s pricing – it’s just out of this world. 24 Hours Only! And don’t forget to use the holiday promo code: Gobble20 for $20 off all orders of $100 or more.

Greg Morthole sourced fruit for this 2017 from vineyards in the Santa Rosa plain, the Middle Reach of the Russian River and Green Valley. Some of the fruit also came from an estate vineyard in the Petaluma Gap. Those varied sites provided enough generous fruit flavor to balance the wine’s brighter notes of sassafras and earthy notes of roots. It’s a clean, fragrant and spicy pinot noir to pour with grilled pork.
