If money were no object, wouldn't we all drink $50+ wine every day?
Our friends at Ansel have taken that question to heart and answered it in the only way that matters: they've delivered a Pinot noir, Chardonnay, and Syrah that taste like $50 but with price tags less than half that.
How do they do it? Utilizing connections and excellent taste, they buy high-end juice that doesn't have a home, from wineries which can't legally be named, and put it in the humble Ansel bottles.
Without any exaggeration, Ansel Willamette Valley Pinot noir was THE surprise Pinot deal of the last two years. We couldn't have predicted the tidal wave-like response from you all. Today Ansel Pinot is back with a new vintage, two new friends, and the same story: this is Willamette Valley Pinot noir, Chardonnay, and Central Coast Syrah which taste and feel luxurious at bargain prices. They are ridiculous deals full of flavor and elegance and we advise you to act accordingly.
Ansel is back, with a new vintage but the same story: like the 2017 and 2018, the 2019 is made from high-end juice from wineries which can't be named (legally). And it tastes expensive. You recognize immediately by the luxurious texture and feel, which are decidedly uncommon for Willamette Valley Pinot in the low-$20s.
How's the 2019? Beautiful. As we said last two times, this is an absolutely dynamite deal in Willamette Valley Pinot, priced to be a true every/any-day wine.
