Belle Pente’s a long time favorite of ours so we feel particularly qualified to say that their wines just keep getting better. Their Yamhill-Carlton bottling is 100% estate grown, making it one of the better values coming from the area. Within the riper Yamhill-Carlton AVA, Belle Pente creates silky, finesse-driven wines of freshness and balance. Enjoy with abandon.
A killer value, absolutely packed with flavor. Loaded with dark berries and plums, finishing with pure fruit and subtle field herbs. Declassified Belle Pente Vineyard.
The Belle Pente Yamhill-Carlton Pinot noir is rich, juicy, and compelling. Aromas of fresh blackberry, sweet cinnamon and white pepper introduce the Y-C experience. Wild blackberry and raspberry fruit, pie-spiced berry compote, and a touch of fresh thyme lead into a long silky and savory finish.
The Yamhill-Carlton vividly demonstrates the special qualities of Oregon Pinot noir. A perfect choice for sharing with people who want to try Oregon's premier wine.
The 2008 vintage of this wine was the New York Times' #1 Oregon Pinot noir.
Another sub-$25 winner from Belle Pente, this round and silky, red-fruited beauty is ready to be on your table, in your glass.
New York Times went crazy over the Belle Pente Willamette Valley 08 today, saying - "Our No. 1 bottle was the Belle Pente Willamette Valley, beautifully balanced, well coiled with acidity and harmonious on the palate, with complex aromas of mint, red fruit, flowers and smoke. At $23, it was our best value." So it sold out in about five minutes.
So owner and winemaker at Belle Pente, Brian O'Donnell, says "buy the Yamhill Carlton 08 - it's a better wine and it's only a dollar more." We agree.
