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.

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.
