Under $25 Oregon Pinot
Four Fantabulous First Class Finds


Lemelson Pinot noir

Lange Pinot noir

Lumos Pinot noir

Pappas Pinot noir

Lemelson Six Vineyards
Pinot noir 05

OUTSTANDING VALUE! Sweet, sweet cherry and raspberry explodes in the aromas and follows into the flavors. Soft, lush, and viscous in the mouth but with great acidity and a finish with shades of barrel spice and earth. Highly Recommended.

Lange Pinot noir
Willamette Valley 06

We are WAY into the Lange wines! This brand new release from the awesome 2006 vintage is a window into the Lange wines. Supple red fruit, classic Oregon Pinot noir balance, flavors that expand on your palate, with just the right the right amount of structure for food or for putting away for a couple years.

Lumos Pinot noir
Five Blocks 05

Engaging aromas of red fruit, blueberry and marionberry with hints of incense and cinnamon. Concentrated flavors of pie cherry, red currant and cranberry evolve into candied cherry and spicy herbal notes on the finish.

This is a young, vibrant wine that cries out for cumin-dusted pork loin. Another value Pinot performer Dai Crisp, manager of Oregon’s Temperance Hill Vineyard.

Pappas Pinot noir 05
from Boedecker Cellars

Yummy, juicy goodness with nice weight of the mid palette and good complexity for the price. Notes of warm barrel spice on the nose give way to bright summer cherries and fat juicy plums. Soft, silky tannins and mellow earthiness make the Pappas a stellar value Pinot. Pappas is the second label of Boedecker Cellars, an Avalon winery to watch. Elsewhere on the web, $20.
