These Pinots are flying! Doubly recommended: highly recommended by us, highly recommended by Wine Spectator. From our captains' chair view in Pinot Noir Command Center, you can't go wrong. Grab them while you can.
$39.55 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case order ($43.95 regular)
94 points Wine Spectator: "Shows grace and presence, with compelling and complex raspberry, dusky spice and orange tea flavors that build richness toward polished tannins. Drink now through 2026."
Us: Too many words, too little space. A mix of elegance, luxury, and energy. It simply feels wonderfully and drinks deliciously right when opened and even better after 48 hours.
$34.15 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case order ($37.95 regular)
94 points, Highly Recommended Wine Spectator: "Polished and elegantly complex, with expressive cherry and blueberry flavors, accented by crushed stone and black tea, building tension and lively acidity toward refined tannins. Drink now through 2025."
Us: Here's another instance when tasting is believing: we saw the review for Gran Moraine's 2017 Yamhill-Carlton Pinot -- 94 points, Highly Recommended in Wine Spectator Advance -- and said "we'll be the judge of that." We cracked a bottle and sure enough, it's a great bottle of Pinot. Consider our expectations exceeded! Bold and boisterous while being fresh and lively, it's a seriously crowd-pleasing Pinot. And if you're into this kind of thing, we'd bet good money that it'll be in Spectator's Top 100 this year.
