Fresh Raves for Oregon Pinot: Purple Hands

Happy Friday Pinot fans! 

A fresh round of praise from Wine Spectator Insider this week brought another rave for Purple Hands: 93 points for Lone Oak Ranch Pinot noir 2017, a superb value at $26.95 and a wine we chose for our Oregon Everyday Pinot Noir Club last month (once again, we outpaced the critics). Purple Hands has become a customer favorite, especially the second wine in today's offer, Latchkey Vineyard '17.

Purple Hands' Cody Wright has been in a wine cellar his whole life. He's had big shoes to fill; he is the son the most famous Oregon winemaker. We think he's doing an excellent job making a name for himself and creating his own voice in Willamette Valley wine. 

Purple Hands Lone Oak Ranch Pinot noir 2017

$26.95 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order
($29.95 regular) 
93 points Wine Spectator Insider 4/17/19: "Well-built and lively, featuring cherry and blueberry flavors, laced with black tea and smoky spice notes that build tension toward refined tannins. Drink now through 2027."

A blend comprised of vineyards - Freedom Hill, Holstein, Kropf, Latchkey, Stoller - Lone Oak Ranch is ebullient with its mixed cherry and raspberry fruit accented by caramel and spice. It is drinking well right out of the gate, especially with a couple swirls of aeration. A March Oregon Everday Pinot Noir wine club selection. - Marcus
 
Purple Hands Latchkey Vineyard 2017
$49.45 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($54.95 regular) 
In my opinion, the strongest vintage yet for Latchkey. The breadth and heft that I've found in past vintages are here, joined by an elevated elegance. Super-pretty raspberry, fresh cherry, rose, toffee, and a hint of white chocolate mocha. Not yet rated but by golly, it better get some love points because it's an outstanding Oregon Pinot noir. - Marcus
 
We're looking forward to helping you with an order. Thanks for your support and have a great weekend!
