Oregon Everyday–it's more than just a name of one of our wine clubs. It is our mission as we taste Pinots throughout the year, searching for the bests of the bunch in style, drinkability, and price. Here are four new standouts in Oregon Everyday Pinot noirs, from household names (Belle Pente) to emerging stars (Granville). Oregon Pinot isn't just for Friday and Saturdays–it's perfect for Tuesdays, too!

Belle Pente's Willamette Valley is one of the most consistently excellent, over-deliverer in the bang-for-buck category. The '19 is fresh, juicy, and noteworthy in its elegant feel. Belle Pente fans know to grab at least a 6-pack; newcomers should follow their (and our) advice.

92 points Wine Spectator: "Sleek and pretty, with multilayered cherry and pomegranate flavors that are laced with orange peel, clove and spice notes. Drink now through 2029."
Us: Purple Hands rocks another vintage of their Willamette Valley blend, Lone Oak Ranch, sourced from excellent sites around the Valley. Deeply fruited purple and blue tones are joined by a fascinating guava note, plus brown spices and a hit of cherry candy through the finish. The yum factor is high here, so get to work!

It’s been ages since we featured a Boedecker wine. And there’s no good (or bad!) reason. But this wonderful everyday Pinot landed on our tasting table and voila. Everything about it is likable: nice label, nice price, easy to open (screwcap), and a surprising amount of depth, character and flavor. Heartier and more muscular than your typical Willamette Valley value, with an easy-to-love heart of black cherry, it has cool accents of black tea, fir forest, and bright red fruits. Dive in!

This dynamite value comes from one of the most exciting up-and-coming producers in Willamette Valley. The '19 Farmhouse is in a generous place, as we found on a recent visit to Granville. Brimming with scrumptious red and black cherries, adding a savory base note with accents of cola spice and whole cluster deliciousness. Already silky and easy to crush, we can only imagine it'll continue to improve over the coming months. An expert blending of Anonimo, Holstein, Eichler, and Arlyn vineyards.
