Monte Degli Angeli Pinot Noir Monferrato 2015 Product #30859 (In Stock)
Monte Degli Angeli Pinot Noir Monferrato 2015 Monte Degli Angeli Pinot Noir Monferrato 2015

You've got to be willing to think a bit outside the box to find real, honest, Pinot Noir selling for less than $10 these days.  Here we head to Italy's Piemonte region - more famous for Barolo and Barbaresco - to a small family-owned estate run by Brothers Antonio and Paolo Sperone.  The climate here is closer to Burgundy than you'd expect, and it lets the Sperones harvest ripe, juicy, Pinot Noir fruit and then give it 6 months in barrel to soften and gain complexity.  Black cherry and strawberry fruit hold center stage here with accents of smoke and fresh earth.  Juicy in the middle and supported by light, fine, tannin, this is a steal in value Pinot Noir that tastes like...well, Pinot Noir!

Dom Brunet Pinot Noir Pays D' Oc 2015 Product #31504 (In Stock)
Dom Brunet Pinot Noir Pays D' Oc 2015 Dom Brunet Pinot Noir Pays D' Oc 2015

A whole lot of Pinot Noir for the money here, marrying French elegance with New World ripeness.  Sweetly fruited with notes of baked cherry and dark raspberry plus added complexity from doses of earthy mineral and warm spice.  Spiced raspberry and black cherry flavors linger on the soft, supple, finish with just enough bite for shape and structure.  In 2015, shows even more weight and richness but stays fresh and easy-drinking from beginning to end. Fun stuff and great value!

Block Nine Caiden's Vyd Pinot Noir 2015 Block Nine Caiden's Vyd Pinot Noir 2015

This has been one of Robert Parker's favorite "value" Pinot Noirs over the past few years; as he said of the 2013, "An authentic tasting Pinot Noir that sells for a song...Aromas of sweet red and black cherry fruit intermixed with clove and baking spices are offered in a medium-bodied, earthy, soft, silky style." Another solid release in the fine 2015 vintage and still a great deal. Fun stuff.

Heron Pinot Noir California 2015 Product #31720 (In Stock)
Heron Pinot Noir California 2015 Heron Pinot Noir California 2015

Here's a delicious party Pinot Noir that well out-performs the modest price.  Ripe Pinot fruit from Paso Robles, Monterey and the Russian River Valley gets a cool fermentation and then aging in 1 and 2 year-old French oak.  That brings out a lovely richness and very RRV-like candied cherry fruit with accents of cola, spice and pepper.  Nice and round on the palate, there's enough structure here for this to shine with salmon and poultry.

Anton Bauer Pinot Noir Wagram 2014 Product #31801 (In Stock)
Anton Bauer Pinot Noir Wagram 2014 Anton Bauer Pinot Noir Wagram 2014

From a warmer corner of this famous white wine region, Anton Bauer crafts a simply lovely Pinot Noir of elegance, purity and style.

"Pure notes of red fruits reach the nose: Morello cherry and mulberry harmonize beautifully. Their purity pervades a palate that has the lightest touch: there is something authentic, beautiful and unforced about this. There is a suggestion, too, of herb, moss or undergrowth. This unpretentious winemaking style lets this pure, glorious fruit speak for itself and brings with it a profound sense of honest depth, bountiful earth and full-fruited balance."Wine Enthusiast 93 points

Elk Cove Pinot Noir Willamette 2014 375ml Product #31676 (In Stock)
Elk Cove Pinot Noir  Willamette 2014 375ml Elk Cove Pinot Noir  Willamette 2014 375ml

Another classic release for this pioneer of Oregon's Chehalem mountains. A bit richer and broader than in some releases - 2013 was warm before the late rains - with a pretty note of smoky oak.

"Fresh and expressive, light-footed and generous, with cherry, plum and apricot flavors, coming together smoothly on the open-textured finish."Wine Spectator 90 points

Shelter Pinot Noir Lovely Lilly Baden 2014 Product #31629 (In Stock)
Shelter Pinot Noir Lovely Lilly Baden 2014 Shelter Pinot Noir Lovely Lilly Baden 2014

We don't see much German Pinot Noir (or Spätburgunder as it's called there) in the USA and what we do find is either very light or pretty pricy.  So this lovely example from Baden is an extra treat because it's both delicious and affordable! Generous sweet/tart cherry/berry fruit with nicely earthy undertones and a touch of citrusy/pommegranite acidity on the fresh, juicy, finish.  As you can see from the label, "Lovely Lilly" is the owners' dog, an appropriate image for this friendly, welcoming, Pinot Noir.

Fossil Point Pinot Noir Edna Valley 2015 Product #31728 (In Stock)
Fossil Point Pinot Noir Edna Valley 2015 Fossil Point Pinot Noir Edna Valley 2015

Fossil Point is named for the rugged headland in San Luis Obispo County which features sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean and Central Coast. These cool coastal vineyards are perfect for Pinot Noir, allowing plenty of ripeness while retaining freshness and fine acidity.

The 2015 edition is simply superb, about as fine a California Pinot Noir value as we've seen in years.  Loads of sweet, ripe, red and black fruit on the nose and palate with a kick of smoke and sweet spice from 14 months in French oak.  A blood orange note comes out with air, lending freshness to match the classic California richness before the sweet spice and dark fruit come up on the long, pure, finish.  Really, really, good stuff.

Ch De Vaux Les Hautes-Bassieres Pinot Noir Moselle 2014 Product #31064 (In Stock)
Ch De Vaux Les Hautes-Bassieres Pinot Noir Moselle 2014 Ch De Vaux Les Hautes-Bassieres Pinot Noir Moselle 2014

Moselle, along the Mosel River before it flows into Germany, was once a rival to Champagne.  The Franco-Prussian war, phylloxera, and WWI and II took a heavy toll, and today this region along the border with Luxembourg is pretty obscure. But, Norbert and Marie-Geneviève Molozay recognized the region's potential (especially in an era of warming climate), and launched Ch de Vaux in 1996 to prove it.

Pour a glass of this and you’ll immediately notice a good deal more color than you’d expect from such a cool climate.  The nose delivers on the promise of richness and depth with complex aromas of raspberry, dark cherry, wood smoke, and forest underbrush flowing out of the glass.  On the palate, it does just what a great holiday red should.  There’s more than enough ripe fruit to survive the onslaught of big dinner flavors with smoky/savory accents that will highlight stuffing and autumn vegetable sides.  The tang of fresh cranberry on the finish evokes the dish of Aunt Martha’s sauce and, more importantly, refreshes your palate and gets you ready for the next forkful.  Delicious, if obscure, and excellent value!

Patricia Green Pinot Noir Reserve 2015 Product #31758 (In Stock)
Patricia Green Pinot Noir Reserve 2015 Patricia Green Pinot Noir Reserve 2015

This has been one of the best values in Willamette Valley Pinot Noir for years, but in 2015 it really soars.  This year 75% of the barrels came from sedimentary soils in Ribbon Ridge and Chehalem Mountain AVAs, 15% from Freedom Hill and 15% from volcanic soils in the Dundee Hills.  It’s genuinely lush and a bit showy now with opulent aromas and flavors of crushed black raspberry, dark cherries, exotic flowers, smoke and damp earth.  Mouthfilling and showing a glyceryl richness, but with vivid acids, fine tannins, and no excess of weight.  As Jim and Patty say, “There are seriously great bones here and this wine will stand up to many, many much higher priced bottlings… In short, this wine is a smoking deal!!

"Deep red. Expansive red berry and floral pastille scents and flavors show impressive energy and pick up a hint of smokiness as the wine opens up. Smooth and fleshy but lively as well; a late jolt of white pepper adds spicy bite. Generous but vibrant in character, finishing very long and sweet, with gentle tannins lending shape and subtle grip. This wine delivers exceptional bang for the buck."  Vinous (Raynolds) 91 points

Au Bon Climat Pinot Noir Santa Barbara 2015 Product #31154 (In Stock)
Au Bon Climat Pinot Noir Santa Barbara 2015 Au Bon Climat Pinot Noir Santa Barbara 2015

The small but very nice 2015 vintage gave us ripe but nicely fresh Pinot's from this part of California, and this is a great example.  Pretty plum and wild strawberry aromas add notes of spice and chocolate with air.  The aromas carry over to the nicely rich but still elegant Pinot that finishes silky and smooth.  Will take a light chill if you like and very fine value.

Don't let the rating put you off - this is pure, nicely ripe, and delicious Pinot Noir!

"A very pretty wine in its class, with vibrant red cherry fruit, sweet floral notes and lovely overall radiance. This is a great introduction to the domaine and, as one might therefore reasonably expect, a fairly classic style of Bourgogne, especially in its sense of structure."  Vinous (Galloni) 87 points

Dom Deliance Givry 1er Cru Les Combes 2014 Dom Deliance Givry 1er Cru Les Combes 2014

From an estate established in 1935 that made first red and white still wines, then sparkling Cremant, and now - with the new generation - is moving back to still wine production.  And very good still wine it is!  This is a delicious, ready young, bistro-style red Burgundy with plenty of pretty Pinot Noir fruit - cherry, red berry - plus just a touch of earth and spice for complexity.  Easy to drink, but with true Burgundy minerality and cut.  Excellent value.

Super bold and rich this vintage but still with elegance and focus to spare.  Lovely value.

"Brilliant ruby-red. Highly fragrant, spice-accented aromas of red and dark berry preserves and floral pastilles; a hint of vanilla emerges with air. Expansive raspberry and cherry-cola flavors are energized and lifted by juicy acidity and a late jolt of white pepper. Packs a solid punch but comes off lithe, finishing with excellent focus, well-knit tannins and strong persistence."  Vinous (Galloni) 92 points

Belle Pente Pinot Noir Willamette Valley 2014 Belle Pente Pinot Noir Willamette Valley 2014

A spectacular, rich and deep, lip-smacking, bottle of delicious Pinot Noir.  Sure, you can cellar this if you want to.  But we're a bit skeptical you can wait.  Better than the rating.

"Vivid red. Mineral- and spice-laced aromas of fresh red berries and rose, joined by a hint of blood orange that builds in the glass. Clean and nervy on entry, then deeper and broader in the midpalate, offering energetic black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors complemented by a sweet touch of floral pastilles. Supple tannins build slowly on the sappy, penetrating finish, which hangs on with strong, spicy persistence."  Vinous (Raynolds) 91 points

Dom Mongeard Mugneret Bourgogne Rouge 2014 Dom Mongeard Mugneret Bourgogne Rouge 2014

Burgundy's 2014 vintage gave us silky, supple, reds with lovely fruit and plenty of classic Burgundy terroir.  Here's a great example from 4.5 acres mainly in and near Vosne-Romanee. Ripe, hand-harvested, fruit is 100% destemmed, fermented in tank and then aged in twice-used French oak.  There's a very pretty perfume of tangy red cherry, raspberry, violets and a hint of something earthy - or "animal" as the winemaker says.  On the palate it's very pure and fresh and transparent with a silky feel to the tart cherry/raspberry fruit.  Stony minerality and fine tannins provide support to this very pretty, very delicious, Pinot Noir.  Drink now - 2020 or so.

Dom Prudhon Chassagne Montrachet Rouge Les Chambres 2011 Dom Prudhon Chassagne Montrachet Rouge Les Chambres 2011

As Burghound sais, this is just classic Chassagne Rouge that is enjoyable right now (decant for an hour) and will be at peak in 2018 or so.  Decant the wine, roast a chicken, and be very happy.

"An expressive, even perfumed nose features notes of pepper, red currant, cassis and plenty of pungent earth character that can also be found on the supple, round and agreeably vibrant middle weight flavors. There is good intensity and lovely detail to the moderately firm and rustic finish that is both well-balanced and persistent. A classic Chassagne rouge."Allen Meadows 89 points

Amalie Robert Pinot Noir  The Uncarved Block 2010 Amalie Robert Pinot Noir  The Uncarved Block 2010

Ernie Pink and Dena Drews craft this lovely Pinot to tell the story of their vineyard in the vintage, blending different clones and parcels from across their 35 acre site perched above Freedom Hill.  In 2010 it's beautiful with the elegance and purity of this remarkable vintage and the open sophistication that only a little time in bottle reveals.  Lovely now and through 2020.

"Bright red. Smoky, mineral-accented black raspberry and rose oil aromas are complemented by hints of cinnamon and allspice. Gently sweet red fruit flavors are given depth by a cherry pit nuance and sharpened by juicy acidity. Silky in texture and appealingly sweet, finishing with very good clarity, subtle tannins and noteworthy spicy persistence."  Vinous (Raynolds) 91 points

The cool, ocean-influenced, Santa Cruz Mountains give some of California's most excitingly fresh Pinot Noirs.  This is a beauty.  The aromas are loaded with sweet and savory spice to go with the wild strawberry and fresh cherry fruit.  With air, the perfume just gets prettier as rose petal and black pepper join the show and lend complexity to the ripe red fruit and spice flavors.  Finishes fresh and ripe, with fruit and flowers lingering nicely.

Arterberry Maresh Pinot Noir Weber Vyd 2014 Arterberry Maresh Pinot Noir Weber Vyd 2014

6 cases available.  Art Weber planted this Dundee Hills site in 1976 just down the road from Maresh Vyd, and Jim Maresh has made wine from own-rooted Pommard planted in 1976 and 1983 since 2010.  It's a nice step up from the Dundee Hills bottling, with more richeness, deeper fruit, and lots and lots of perfume.  More open and forward than the Maresh Vyd, this is a delicious choice to drink now - 2029 or so.

"Vivid red. Mineral- and spice-tinged aromas of fresh red berries and candied rose develop a hint of incense as the wine opens up. Shows impressive clarity and lift in the mouth, offering sappy raspberry, spice cake and floral pastille flavors joined by a jolt of smoky minerals. Finishes very long and gently sweet, featuring subtle tannins and strong, floral-driven persistence." Vinous (Raynolds) 92 points

"The 2014 Pinot Noir Weber Vineyard comes from vines planted in 1983. It has a very refined bouquet with red cherry, wild strawberry, sous-bois and subtle floral notes - very complex and classy. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, nicely structured with a gentle grip. The fruit veers towards the darker side of the spectrum towards the finish, with blackberry and cranberry fruit, long and edgy. Classy, composed and cool, this is how to make world-class Pinot Noir."Wine Advocate 93 points
