Pinot Noir Closeouts!

26 Oct Pinot Noir Closeouts!

We’ve got some great deal closeout Pinots for you today! We tasted the Freeman as a team and found it to be delicious and a great buy at this price. Waits-Mast is another winery we’ve worked with a lot in the past and we were excited to pick up the last few bottles of each of these single-vineyards, as our supplier is no longer carrying the wines. Get these deals while supplies last!

2016 Freeman Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley
On Sale $36.99 (average online is $46!)
Refined and elegant, this generously fruity wine is silky on the palate and brings red-cherry, rhubarb and raspberry notes that begin in the aroma and echo in the flavor. It is medium bodied, has subtle tannins and good acid balance.

2014 Waits-Mast “Mariah Vineyard” Pinot Noir, Mendocino Ridge
On Sale $29.99 (lowest online is $42!)
This medium-bodied wine has a relatively light-garnet color and a touch of cloudiness that is accompanied by complex and attractive aromas blending cinnamon, clove, rhubarb and light wood smoke. These layered nuances flow into the flavors and fill the mouth with black-cherry and sour-cherry notes that are ripe but not too ripe, so the wine has fine balance.

2014 Waits-Mast “Wentzel Vineyard” Pinot Noir, Anderson Valley
On Sale $34.99 (lowest online is $45!)
This distinctive wine has a light-garnet color and intriguing raspberry and cranberry aromas that lead to full red- and black-cherry flavors accented by rosemary and wood smoke. Fermented by native yeast and using some whole clusters for the astringency and flavor that stems can add, it has a texture that’s moderately tannic and nicely supported by acidity.

2014 Waits-Mast “Oppenlander Vineyard” Pinot Noir, Mendocino County
On Sale $34.99 (lowest online is $43!)
Coming from a singular vineyard along the Mendocino coast, this wine has smoky savory flavors that complement the just-ripe fruit flavors and give a truly maverick but easy-to-enjoy personality. It is medium bodied, velvet textured, and has good structure, fine-grained tannins and enough concentration for a lingering finish.

2014 Waits-Mast “Deer Meadows” Pinot Noir, Anderson Valley
On Sale $39.99 (lowest online is $47!)
The color is on the light side and the appearance is slightly cloudy but that takes nothing away from the interesting flavors of plum, black tea and mint leaves that come with a mild texture, a light body, some good acidity and a sense of reserve in this native-yeast-fermented wine from a consistently excellent winemaking couple.
