Yes! Here's a value drinker from prestige winery Beaux Freres, one that rarely comes along. Blending barrels from the cellar, including Estate fruit, created an elegant and refreshing young Pinot.

Fans of Beaux Freres? Here's what to drink while you wait for your Estate and Upper Terrace to age.

Fragrant and spicy aromas lead into a fresh handful of red berries, mixing with earth and sweet blackberries on the sneaky-long finish. Drinking well with decanting, Les Cousins will age for 2-4 years.

Beaux Freres' Mike Etzel and eldest son Jared Etzel

2009 Vintage

The 2009 Les Cousins is remarkably good - Mike put all of his skill and perfect grapes into a Pinot with his distinct Beaux Freres style. The 2009 vintage is immediately enjoyable - succulent and accessible - and Les Cousins proves the point. Scents of fresh raspberry and cherry extend in the flavor as black cherry and berries, berries, berries. A flood of ripe fruit and smooth, seamless hints of creamy oak just keeps going.

The first wine of the 2009 vintage released from Beaux Freres. A vintage that whose hallmarks seem to be charm and silky texture. The Les Cousins bottling is a wine of concept more than of place (though it is all Willamette Valley fruit) - the barrels for this wine were selected by Mike and Grant from our cellar to demonstrate a brighter, more approachable wine, one of style and grace.

This wine is perfect to drink right now - like all Beaux Freres wines it benefits from air and with a quick splash decanting it really opens up allowing the fresh fruit to shine - think raspberries, blackberries and a bit of kirsch. This is a wine that will drink well over the next several years but is just too quaffable now to wait for. - the winery
