It's officially Oregon Wine Month! Of course you know that every month is Oregon wine month for us. What better way to celebrate than with a trio of collectible 2019 Pinots from three of Oregon's rockstar wineries?
Twenty years from now we'll still be talking about 2019 as a classic vintage. Any and every shortlist of top Willamette Valley Pinot producers includes Soter, Bergstrom, and Beaux Freres; the wines from each truly have never been better. All three have stellar Wine Spectator reviews and four enthusiastic thumbs up from us. Sure, they are collectible and we'll also point out that each Pinot is surprisingly delicious already—thanks, 2019! It's time to buy.
$54.95 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case order ($59.95 regular)
94 points Wine Spectator: "A wine with dimension and grace, this Pinot has tiers of raspberry, mineral and dusky spice that build expression and tension toward refined tannins. Drink now through 2030."
Us: The newest Pinot noir gem from Soter will stop you mid-sentence—it's that impressive, that commanding. Beautiful red and blue fruit intensity with mouthwatering verve and balance. Our favorite Soter Pinot noir in many years.
$67.95 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case order ($74.95 regular)
94 points Wine Spectator: "Polished and expressive, with rose petal, black raspberry and spiced tea flavors that expand and flesh out on the savory finish. Drink now through 2029."
Us: The Bergstroms and the Gregorys believe 2019 is the best vintage of Gregory Ranch Pinot noir and we are in full agreement. Fantastic complexity in aromas and flavors, brimming with youthful energy, this is pure fun if you choose to drink it now (and you should).
$58.95 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case order ($64.95 regular)
94 points Wine Spectator: "Vibrant and detailed, with impeccably structured raspberry and guava flavors that are laced with orange peel and black tea notes, building richness and sleek polish on the long finish. Drink now through 2030."
Us: By now the theme will have emerged: the best Beaux Freres Willamette Valley bottling in...years or more. Beaux Freres fans will know what we're talking about—the wines are better than ever. Buy! If you haven't had a Beaux Freres Pinot in a few years, this is a great time/wine to dive back in. Buy!
