These Belong in Your Glass and Cellar

Here are two new Pinots from two our of favorite Oregon wineries, Goodfellow and Westrey. Whether you're looking for a Tuesday night pop-and-pour or a sultry single vineyard, we have you covered. These two wines belong in your glass and in your cellar!

Goodfellow Family Cellars Willamette Valley Pinot noir 2014                                      $17.95 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($19.95 regular)

Outstanding Oregon Pinot for the dollar, this wine over delivers then backs the truck up and delivers some more. To love this wine is to love the style of Marcus Goodfellow, whose Matello (and now, Goodfellow) wines have been favorites of ours for many years. His wines are as enjoyable as they are intellectual, beguiling you and refreshing you in equal doses.

Made from two impeccable vineyards, Durant and Whistling Ridge, priced more than humbly because hey, that's just the way Goodfellow rolls. - Marcus (Looze) 
 
$40.45 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($44.95 regular)
 
This might be the most attractive Westrey Pinot noir in their twenty one years of winemaking! Unusually decadent for a wine from the high elevation, late-ripening Abbey Ridge Vineyard, it's flat out sexy. Still, it retains the silky, ethereal brightness and balance we've come to expect from Abbey Ridge, along with characteristic perfumed lavender and lilac, exotic spices, summer raspberries, and musk. Open and enjoy over the course of two or three days, or cellar for two to ten years.

Because of our longtime support of Westrey, we were afforded the exclusive opportunity to feature Westrey's Abbey Ridge 2014 before its official release. Our fondness for Abbey Ridge Vineyard is quite well known; we think it consistently yields some of the finest Pinot noir and Chardonnay in Oregon. Westrey is one of only two wineries that has access to Abbey Ridge fruit (Cameron is the other). Planted in the Dundee Hills in 1978, Abbey Ridge is one of Oregon's oldest producing vineyards and (we think) one of the best. - Marcus
