Tasting Notes

Made from 20-year-old Pinot Noir planted in chalk and clay soils, vinified entirely in stainless steel, this is a super fresh and fun style of Pinot. It has everything you want in a Pinot--a touch of spice, pretty red and blue fruits, light tannin and a fresh, juicy finish.

    Like the others have said this is a surprisingly serious and elegant Pinot Noir especially given the price. It is next to impossible to get good, or even decent Pinot Noir at under $15, but this wine delivers. Chalky minerality, floral notes with some dark fruit, and acid that drives the whole thing. For those looking to get away from overly sweet inexpensive Pinot, buy this before we run out again.

    This is the best pound-for-pound Pinot Noir in the store. Period. It's a serious, quaffable Pinot at an obscenely low price point. Read my buddy Mahon's review below. This is a rare creature. Come get some before they roll out of the door, just like they did last year.

    I strongly encourage you to avail yourselves of this shapely Pinot Noir while you can. It is that rarest creatures—a value priced Pinot Noir that escapes being some Candy-Land ditch or being so odd that it is unidentifiable as the varietal it purports to be. Proportionate, with bright acidity, this leans to dark fruit with a loamy edge flavor-wise, and this vintage boasts a nice floral lift, too. You won’t jump out of your socks to taste it, but then there are always other bottles to turn to achieve that effect. For an everyday wine, however, it really cleans up.

    It is a constant battle trying to find a Pinot Noir for an affordable price that is worth drinking. 2014 was the first vintage that I had tried, and the 2015 is just as incredible if not better than the last vintage. Coming from the chalky soils of the Loire valley near Sancerre, this Pinot is elegant. Aromas of crush flower and violets lead to a palate with lift and acidity, and notes of plum, currants and graphite, this red is perfect for every occasion. Look no further for your everyday Pinot.
