There are lots of really good Pinot Noirs in the over $20.00 price range, but the real challenge is to find decent Pinot at a price that allows more frequent imbibing. Drop in Saturday afternoon to join us for an exploration of value oriented Pinots from California and Oregon.
2012 Leese-Fitch Pinot Noir, California
LIST PRICE 12.00; OUR PRICE 9.99
The Sebastiani boys do a fantastic job of crafting very nice Pinot Noir under 10 bucks. The flavors are reminiscent of dark plum, raspberry, cedar, cocoa nibs, and rhubarb finishing with a hint of earthy loam, black cherry, and toffee.
2012 Sean Minor Pinot Noir “Four Bears”, Central Coast
LIST PRICE 16.00; OUR PRICE 10.99
Sean Minor founded Four Bears in 2005 as a distinct focus on competitively priced varietal wines from the Central Coast and Napa Valley. This Pinot Noir is sourced from five Central Coast appellations, mostly in Monterey County. Aromas of cherry cola and raspberry give way to a palate marked by red fruits and layers of spice and oak.
2012 Jovino Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley, Oregon
LIST PRICE 18.00; OUR PRICE 14.99
MJoe Dobbes, owner and winemaker has been making wine in Oregon for over 20 years after starting out in France.
Jovino, his second label after the Dobbes label, is a delicious wine that exhibits all of the gorgeous, desirable qualities of an Oregon Pinot Noir without the price tag. The wine is elegant, rich and food-friendly.
2012 Masterpiece Vineyards Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley
LIST PRICE 20.00; OUR PRICE 15.99
This lovely wine was made by Margaret Davenport at Windsor Oaks winery, from estate vineyards south of Healdsburg. This is textbook Russian River Valley Pinot Noir. It is rich and smooth, with aromas of ripe strawberries and cherries that lead to a palate layered with flavors of red and black fruits. A kiss of oak adds complexity and spice nuances to the finish.
2011 Byron Pinot Noir, Santa Barbara County
LIST PRICE 20.00; OUR PRICE 16.99
This wine received 91 points and a Best Buy rating from Wine & Spirits Magazine: “Byron’s basic 2012 Santa Barbara is that rare bird: delicious, affordable California Pinot Noir. Sourced from three vineyards in Santa Maria Valley, two near Los Alamos and one in the Santa Rita Hills. It’s approachable; lasting on fresh red-fruit-skin flavor and fine tannins, light on its feet, with a hard-to-resist juiciness reminiscent of cru Beaujolais.”
2012 MacMurray Ranch Pinot Noir, Central Coast
LIST PRICE 19.00; OUR PRICE 17.99
The MacMurray Central Coast Pinot opens up with delicate cherry and pomegranate flavors accented by hints of vanilla and toast. The mouth-feel is silky and smooth. With time to breathe, it opens to an alluring balance of flavor and texture and proceeds to a long pleasant finish.
