Pinot Noir is the world’s most popular light-bodied red wine. Some love Oregon Pinot Noir, other prefer a bottle from the Russian River Valley. Souther Napa has Pinot Noir from America's favorite growing region as well as the world over.
Pinot Noir is loved for its red fruit, flower, and spice aromas that are accentuated by a long, smooth finish.
$19.00Dark ruby color. Light to medium bodied with aromas and flavors of raspberry, tart cherry, spice with a touch of earth. Supple and balanced with a smooth finish.
The Pinot Noir fruit for this wine is grown in some of the finest regions within the diverse North Coast appellation. The Beckstoffer Vineyard in the Carneros Napa region was tapped for 45% of the fruit going into the blend.
An additional 24% of the blend comes from the Pauli Ranch in southern Mendocino County which lends pretty floral aromas and really softens the overall wine.
This Pinot Noir is a true, ruby red in the glass with vibrant aromas of strawberry, cranberry, rose petal, and brewed black tea. The palate is fresh with loads of red fruit, mushroom, soy and pomegranate flavors. The wine is distinctively coastal in style with cooler climate characteristics including complex flavors of forest floor and spice and with bright acidity that heighten the texture and length.
Dark ruby in the glass, aromas of blackberries and roasted almonds mingle with nuances of toasted marshmallows and brown sugar. Soft and velvety, robust with a voluptuous and full-bodied mouthfeel, the palate unfolds with luxurious layers of intense red cherry, and a delicate hint of blueberry (imparted by the Malbec). A long, lingering finish instills a lasting impression of rich, concentrated flavors, vanilla bean and toasted oak.
Richly-flavored and full-bodied, this Pinot Noir does not shy away from heartier fare. Serve with a dry-rubbed porterhouse steak, roast duck – the pairings are endless.
This is a well-made wine that's generous in aromas and flavors. It is a little taut and appetizing in texture and balanced by good acidity. Cinnamon and red-cherry aromas are followed by snappy cherry and raspberry flavors. The wine is medium bodied and lightly tannic.
$28.00The aromas of the 2018 Illahe Vineyards Estate Pinot Noir begin with strawberry, tamarind, and blackberry then broaden along the palate to include chalk, tobacco leaf, chocolate, and earth. The acid supports a complete yet not overwhelming tannin balanced between skin and oak. The wine retains its velvet mouthfeel through a process of clarification by racking.
$30.00The Ken Wright Cellars Willamette Valley Pinot Noir is a thoughtful blend of most of world-class single vineyard Pinot noir sites. The aromatics showcase the volcanic influence having impressive depth of pronounced Bing Cherry and Marionberry. Warm flavors of cola, and baking spices, which are sedimentary driven, are wrapped in perfectly balanced acidity. Mouthwatering and juicy.
Willakenzie's new estate-focused blend, the Estate Pinot Noir is pale ruby-purple in color with a lovely spicy nose of red licorice, dried rose petals and potpourri over a core of bright red fruits—raspberry, strawberry, rhubarb and red cherry with cinnamon stick accents. Light to medium-bodied, it features bright red fruits framed with oodles of savory/spicy notes in the mouth. It has firm, grainy tannins and wonderful juicy acidity, finishing long with spicy layers. This will show best after a couple of years in bottle.

$23.00Dark and brooding, this classic pinot noir displays aromas of rose petals, earth and spice. It is sophisticated and elegant, yet solid and substantial; an iron fist in a velvet glove.

A once in a lifetime alignment of perfectly grown Pinot Noir and poignant winemaking.
$25.00Aromas of ripe cherry and plum. Flavors of pomegranate and black raspberry linger on the mid-palate. Pairs beautifully with salmon, all white fish, meat and duck.
Refined and well-structured, with expressive raspberry & rose petal aromas that open to densely layered cherry, stony mineral & black tea flavors, building tension toward fine-grained tannins.
A fragrant dried rose petal and berry potpourri flows a lush, juicy entry. Darker raspberry preserve and blackberry flavors fill the midpalate, with clove and forest floor accents showing through to the finish. This wine is opulent and silky start to end, with lovely fruit and spice notes that linger on the palate.

$37.00Ruby and garnet in appearance, this wine jumps out of the glass with ripe fresh strawberry, raspberry, and cranberry fruit aromas and subtle oak spice. The palate is generous and supple and has balanced tannins reflecting the long gentle ripening conditions of the season
Sold Out $60.00
This Oregon Pinot Noir offers aromas of Italian plum, black cherry and dark chocolate. On the palate, it shows primary flavors of cola and cranberry, and secondary flavors of pink peppercorn and toasted tobacco. Dense and opulent on the finish.
"This wine has a beautiful balance of raspberry fruit profile with warm spice, black tea and a delicate cocoa. The fruit on the palate is juicy but if you lean in there is a quiet brooding character to this wine that still has a lot yet to give. The Acid holds the fruit in check and the tannins keep the gentle momentum into a long finish. In a word, ‘delicious.'"
Enticing, fragrant complexity with ripe, boysenberry and red-cherry notes, married to a plush palate that has an attractive, balanced and velvety feel. Long, fresh-fruit flavors hold smoothly. Drink or hold. - James Suckling
No two years are alike, especially in Oregon wine country, this is part of what keeps the winemakers and growers of the Willamette Valley enthralled with the challenge of each unique vintage. The 2016 growing season started early in spring and didn’t slow down, bringing the earliest start date of harvest on record. The summer was long and dry, which gave intense beautiful fruit in the vineyard with more texture and intensity than usual; if you enjoy rich, full, fruit forward wines, seek out those made in the Willamette Valley during 2016.
Tasting Notes: garnet color, black currant, black cherry, cocoa, ripe strawberry, lush texture.

"Dark cherries and toasted spices make for a captivating nose with plenty of immediate interest. The deeply rich dark-cherries on the palate are cast along fluid, long and sturdy tannin lines. Strong finish. Drink or hold."
$32.00Brilliant crimson in color, Raeburn Russian River Valley Pinot Noir leads with pleasing aromas of baking spice and vanilla. The palate is marked with stunning fruit flavors of lush wild blueberry, raspberry and blackberry with undertones of roasted hazelnut. The finish is graceful and sophisticated.
Pretty cranberry (ruby-garnet) color. Cherry, spice and cranberry aromas. Light-to-medium-bodied. Sour cherry, baking spice on the palate, with bittersweet fruit watermelon candy on the finish. Wild mushroom pizza, herbed, oven-roasted chicken, a seared duck breast or any lighter grilled meats would all make good partners for this pretty, delicate, everyday wine.
$31.00Subtlety is the secret inside this wine. It begins with sophisticated fragrances of black cherries and violets while showcasing an elegantly expressive palate of ripe bramble fruit and subtle tannins.
