New Lower Prices on Ayoub
We’ve dropped the prices on Mo Ayoub’s namesake Pinots—an exciting event for one of the new-benchmark wineries in the Willamette Valley. Ayoub has established itself as a go-to for customers looking for big, rich, silky Pinot Noir. These are full throttle wines, as Oregon Pinot goes, and their small quantities mean that they have become coveted bottles to have in the cellar. Mo is very excited about the 2017—a vintage that is deservedly gaining a lot of buzz here in Oregon and combines the richness of the house with bright, fresh fruit of the vintage.

Montevertine Le Pergole Torte 2015
Iconic Wine – Iconic Year – Iconic Pricing!
One of Chianti’s greatest wines isn’t labeled as a Chianti, despite being made in the heart of the Classico zone. Montevertine originally left the appellation because at the time, white grapes were required to call a wine Chianti and Sergio Manetti, the owner, wanted to make a wine that was 100% Sangiovese, a scandalous thing at the time. Thus Le Pergole Torte was born. It’s a special wine, one that stops a conversation every time you get a chance to taste it. This is one of the icons of Tuscany and at this price, should be a star of your cellar, as well.

A January 2019 Wine Spectator Insider Hot Wine:
Louis Jadot Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru 2016 750ML ($249.95) Buy Now: $199 pre-arrival special
Wine Spectator 97 points “Rose, cherry and spice aromas introduce this light-bodied, saturated version. The flavors add wild strawberry, incense and kirsch notes, while remaining persistent on the kaleidoscopic finish. Feels tense now, yet should develop nicely over time. A mineral element lingers. Best from 2023 through 2045.”… Read the rest
