Our friends at Broadley Vineyards are delivering incredible Pinot, as we re-discovered last week when tasting the brand new 2018 Willamette Valley and 2016 Jessica Pinot noirs. With over 30 Willamette Valley vintages notched in their belts, it's both refreshing and even a tiny bit bewildering that they're also still delivering exceptional bargains.
Their '18 WV is hands-down one of the bargains of the whole Valley; their namesake Jessica Pinot is outstanding and a bargain in its peer group. We're enamored with both and if you need further nudging to add some of the latter to your stash, you can read the three (3!) fantastic, 94 point reviews. Broadley Willamette Valley Pinot noir 2018
$18.85 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($20.95 regular)
A LOT of Pinot for the price -- one of the best values going in Oregon Pinot -- it's as universally appealing as $20 Pinot gets! A dark fruited beauty with excellent refinement, it sings and resonates with delicious fresh black berry juicy acidity and Broadley sweet earth through the yummy finish. - Marcus
$39.55 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($43.95 regular)
Gorgeous wine. Pure and deep, velvety textured and plush yet with excellent verve and balance. A simmering, underlying deft power and inner Pinot sweetness makes it irresistible. - Marcus And in case you need our opinion reinforced:
94 points Vinous: "Assertively perfumed scents of candied red fruits, incense, potpourri and exotic spices pick up a hint of smokiness in the glass. Sweet, seamless and expansive on the palate, showing wonderful clarity and mineral lift to the bitter cherry, raspberry and rose pastille flavors. Takes a deeper, darker turn with air and finishes on a gently tannic note, delivering outstanding persistence and lingering black raspberry and spicecake qualities."
94 points Wine Enthusiast, Editor's Choice: "This vintage of Jessica is a rock star of a wine, a full display of winemaking craftsmanship at its best. Black-cherry, black-tea, tobacco and coffee flavors are seamlessly combined in a rich supple utterly captivating wine that will be hard to leave in your cellar for very long."
94 points PinotFile: "The aromas blossom beautifully over time in the glass, offering notes of darker cherry, boysenberry, violets and a hint of beneficial nutty and vanillin oak. Very suave in the mouth with gracious, silken tannins, becoming more engaging with time. Middleweight in concentration, with well-bred, saucy flavors of black cherry and black raspberry. Enviable balance, with lasting flavors on the finish. Irresistible when tasted the following day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle."
We're looking forward to helping you with an order. Thanks for your support!
