La Source Pinot noir 2010

$53.95 in any 12 bottle order or Build a Case*
($59.95 retail)
6 bottle limit per customer
Remarkable for its array of vivid flavors on a sleek, airy frame, shading its juicy raspberry and cherry fruit with a streak of wet rock, crushed rose petal and white pepper, all of it put together seamlessly. The finish just doesn’t quit. Drink now through 2020. – H.S.

(Archery Summit) Pinot noir 2010

$39.95 in any 12 bottle order or Build a Case” ($44.40 retail)

Vibrant, elegant and complex, with pinpoint focus to the currant, plum and mineral flavors. A nice layer of allspice and white chocolate adds smoothness to the long, vivid and gloriously transparent finish. Drink now through 2020. – H.S.

Bergstrom

Bergstrom Vineyard Pinot noir 2010

$71.95  in any 12 bottle order or Build a Case* ($79.95 retail)
Bergstrom Bergstrom Vineyard Pinot noir 2010Fresh and jazzy, with a sour candy edge to the blackberry and currant flavors, showing intensity as this extends into the lovely, refined finish. Needs some time to incorporate the tannins. Best from 2014 through 2018. – H.S.

Ayoub
Brittan Vineyard Pinot noir 2010

$39.95  in any 12 bottle order or Build a Case* ($44.40 retail)
Ayoub’s Brittan Vineyard 2010 is the darkest, most intense of the 2010 Ayoub Pinots. Very concentrated and dark fruited, the Brittan explodes with crushed blueberries and summer blackberries, with a mouthwatering cherry thread. Slate-like minerality, a Brittan vineyard trait, adds the perfect accent. The finish keeps chugging along for well over a minute. Only 118 cases made. – Marcus

Ayoub Murto Vineyard Pinot noir 2010Wine Spectator 91 Points
Ayoub

Murto Vineyard Pinot noir 2010

$39.95  in any 12 bottle order or Build a Case* ($44.40 retail)
The 2010 Murto Pinot Noir has gorgeous aromas of cherries, dried rose petals, tobacco, white pepper and wet clay. The lush palate has a medley of black cherries, currant and raspberries. A mix of exotic spices lingers on the bright, fine textured and very long finish. It will benefit from time in the cellar and has the potential to age for 12+ years. Only 90 cases made. – Marcus

Raptor Ridge Reserve Pinot noir 2009Wine Spectator 93 Points
Raptor Ridge

Reserve Pinot noir 2009

$32.35  in any 12 bottle order or Build a Case* ($35.95 retail)
Supple, refined and distinctive for the purity and clarity of its dark berry, cherry and guava flavors, lingering easily on the light, expressive finish. Drink now through 2019. – H.S.
