22 Oct New Pinots: Cali. vs. Oregon
We’re very excited about both of these new arrival Pinot Noirs. The CP is a rockin’ example of California Pinot done well, with a fuller-bodied design than its Oregon or French counterparts. The Big Fire from Oregon is a bit leaner and earthier, and also elegant and delicious.
2016 Calipaso Winery “CP” Pinot Noir, Central Coast, California
On Sale $9.99
This is a lush, fruity style of Pinot Noir that is classic Central Coast. Notes of red berries and black cherries on the palate are accented by hints of earth and smoke. It’s fuller-bodied than your average Pinot. Delicious!
2014 Big Fire Pinot Noir, Oregon
On Sale $16.99
A silky and pretty red with plum and dried-strawberry character. Some smoke and chocolate undertones. Medium to full body and silky tannins. Fine and focused. Drink now or hold.
