Left Coast White Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley
Sale $21.99, Reg. $22.99 ($18.69/bt on a Mixed Case)

Famed for its diversity to complement nearly any food pairing, Left Coast's White Pinot Noir is a fan favorite! Limited skin contact gives the White Pinot Noir its pristine clarity. The wine itself is perfumed with fresh scents and mirrored flavors of Ranier cherry, peach and poached pear.  Rich and broad with bright, balancing acidity on the palate and a lingering mineral finish. #SpringTastingTopSeller


Left Coast Cali's Cuvee Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley
Sale $21.99, Reg. $22.99 ($18.69/bt on a Mixed Case)

“A splendid example of affordable Oregon Pinot, this benefits from a great vintage for forward, fruit-driven wines. It has additional assets: balance, texture and length, all compact in a young wine still in its infancy. The sappy raspberry fruit and overall polish suggest giving it another couple of years of bottle age before opening.” 91 pts. & Editor’s Choice! Wine Enthusiast  (2014)

Sale $14.99, Reg. $16.99 ($12.74/bt on a Mixed Case)

With bourbon-soaked barrels in their cellar, Barrel Road uses them for aging; bringing in warm spice and additional layers of complexity to their red blend. This wine is a deep, brilliant red and opaque. On the nose, notes of black cherry, molasses, and toast create a strong, inviting aroma.
