K&L Notes

Averaen Pinot Noir comes from the folks at Banshee, and is made in Oregon by winemaker Adam Smith, who made Banshee's first batch! They always make a spot-on quality-for-price Pinot, and we're excited to see them in action in Oregon. According to the winery's vintage notes, 2017 saw an elongated harvest in good conditions, and the wines show exceptional structure, focus, and juicy red fruit in abundance. A classic Oregon vintage.

    If you are looking for one of the best values in Oregon Pinot, this is your wine. We have been big fans of the Banshee project in Sonoma over the last decade, and were more than thrilled to bring in the Oregon side of the business when the Averaen label was introduced a few years back. Vintage after vintage, the wines have continued to charm K&L staffers and customers alike. If you haven't yet tasted Averaen, now is the time.

    This excellent (and affordable!) Pinot Noir from Banshee's Willamette Valley vineyard is great. Deep, dark and red fruited, it has low to moderate tannin without being extracted or "sweet". Light earthy flavors at the back of the palate add complexity and nuance.

    This small, independent Oregon Pinot Noir specialist is a spinoff from the wildly popular Banshee wines. They are producing high-quality, value-driven Pinot that’s just a pleasure to drink. Oregon Pinot Noir has come a long way over the last two decades and the proof is in the bottle. Over time the vines have gained age, which results in wines of greater complexity and richness. This is the kind of Pinot Noir you want to be serving with your holiday bird, salmon, and even some red meat dishes. The wine shows exceptional structure, focus, and juicy red fruit.
