Without engaging in any exaggeration, Ansel Willamette Valley Pinot noir was THE surprise Pinot deal of the last year. We didn't see it coming and couldn't have predicted the tidal wave-like response from you all. Eight months after the 2017 sold out, we still get a couple emails a week asking "is there any of that Ansel available?"
Today we're stoked to be able to answer in the affirmative: Ansel is back, with an entirely new label but the same theme: this is a major "insider" deal, made from seriously high-end juice from wineries which can't be named (legally). And it tastes expensive. You recognize immediately by the texture and feel, which are decidedly NOT $20. But the price is and that's all that matters!
How this stacks up to the much-loved 2017: you'll think we're B.S.-ing but the 2018 is a better overall wine. It has the same luxurious feel but better overall balance (and a notch lower alcohol at 13.9%). We'll leave it to you to decide but as we said last time, this is an absolutely dynamite deal in Willamette Valley Pinot which has a lusciousness rarely found in $20 Pinot.
Some wines speak to the past, some are here and now, others offer glimpses at how the Willamette Valley might evolve. Only one winery encompasses it all–storied past, delicious present, thrilling future: Eyrie.
