Two Too Good – Haden Fig Oregon Pinot noir

 

Two Too Good – Under $30 Haden Fig Pinot noirs

Today we have two new Haden Fig single vineyard Oregon Pinot noirs that are too good to pass up, especially for under $30. They are tiny production Pinots that belong in your glass and in your cellar.

These two wines encompass what makes me love Oregon wine: fun-loving and easy-going on one hand, intellectual, nuanced, and contemplative on the other.

We can’t wait for you to try them!

Haden Fig Cancilla Vineyard Pinot noir 2010
$26.95 in any 12 bottle or build a case order ($29.95 retail)

Review: Beguiling and cerebral aromas make you want to pour a glass and smell it for hours. Dark red fruit, rosemary, and wet stones expand into a palate of dark berries, bright acidity and a picture-perfect finish of sweet licorice playing off white pepper. This is fun to drink now, especially over the course of a few days, but it will achieve another level of greatness when cellared for several years. Only 150 cases made for the world.

Haden Fig Bjornson Vineyard Pinot noir 2010
$26.95 in any 12 bottle or build a case order ($29.95 retail)

Review: Rounder, bolder and darker, all within the context of graceful Pinot noir. Blackberry, black raspberry, violet, vibrant and lush. The finish is like biting into a mouthful of summer blackberries!  We’ve spent the week tasting this and pouring it in the shop – it’s received praise from customers and winemakers alike. The Bjornson is drinking great right now and it has plenty of stuffing to age for 3-4 years. Only 75 cases made for the world. Bjornson Vineyard shares a fence line with the famed Seven Springs Vineyard.
