Weekend Special
Beaux Freres Blowout

Offer Good Through Monday


Beaux Freres is a small, extremely highly regarded winery in Oregon's Northern Willamette Valley. The Estate Vineyard, a mere 24 acres, produces some of the highest-rated North American Pinot noir, year after year. Mike Etzel is winemaker and co-owner of the winery with Robert Parker, the famous wine critic.


This special offer is good through Monday. No further discount will be applied to the Beaux Freres wines. A 10% case discount will apply to all other wines purchased as part of a case order.

Dark ruby-colored, the 2007 Estate offers an intense, sweet scent of black raspberry and cherry, wild strawberry, herb, earth, and dried flowers. Tasting the wine, a silky cream texture introduces flavors of blackberry, black raspberry, and black cherry. The rich, plump fruit is accented by subtle notes of sweet earth, truffle, Asian spice, and dried field herbs.


Fleshy, plush, and charming, the 2007 Estate is medium bodied, gaining weight and depth with decanting. Good acidity and ripe tannins are well proportioned for cellaring - the winery suggests that the wine will evolve for 10-12 years.

Willamette Valley Pinot noir 07
Regular $49.95

Weekend Special $42.94

No further Case discount applies

The most approachable and ready to drink of the three Beaux Freres wines, the 2007 Willamette Valley is succulent and juicy. Sweet red raspberry and blackberry scents mingle with hints of dried flowers and fruit. Flavors reiterate the scent - there's a youthful lilt to the red cherry and berry flavors. Raspberry and sweet red cherry flavors are accentuated by pie spice, and a soft creaminess underlies all. We found the wine uplifting, lithe, and refreshing.

Beaux Freres
Upper Terrace Pinot noir 07
Regular $89.95

Weekend Special $74.94

No further Case discount applies

Darkest of the Beaux Freres Pinots, the Upper Terrace serves up an intense scent of black cherry and raspberry, mingling with violet, dried rose and forest floor. Velvety and sensual in texture, deep flavors of creamy black cherry and spice box linger in a long, pure finish.
