Sometimes, less is more. We usually pour more offerings for our Super Saturday Wine Tastings, but this installment is going to be all about quality, and less about quantity. Join us to taste and understand why California and Oregon are two of best spots in the world to grow and craft Pinot Noir. From the richer and more opulent versions from California’s Sonoma Coast to the more complex and earthy versions from Oregon’s Willamette Valley, we’ll have all bases covered. And with prices averaging $40+, this is a great opportunity to taste greatness without having to spend much money. Taste, learn, save every Saturday at Table Wine.
All of the featured tasting wines are 20% off by the bottle on tasting day only.
1. 2016 Arterberry Maresh Pinot Noir Dundee Hills (Willamette Valley, Oregon) – Not only did Jim Maresh craft the top-rated Oregon Pinot of the ’16 vintage, he also made the top value of the highly acclaimed vintage. It’s this one! “Pale to medium ruby-purple, the 2016 Pinot Noir Dundee Hills has a lovely open nose of warm cinnamon stick, cranberry and baked red cherry pie with black tea leaf and potpourri spice.” – Wine Advocate – 93 points
2. 2016 Martinelli Pinot Noir “Bella Vigna” (Sonoma Coast, California) – From one of Sonoma’s oldest and most respected producers, this is BIG Pinot Noir from vineyards scattered throughout the Russian River Valley and the Sonoma Coast. Boasting a rich and concentrated personality, it offers up heady notes of blueberry, black cherry jam, black tea, and toasty oak notes. If you like your Pinots to coat every square inch of your palate, you’re gonna’ love this one.
3. 2016 Arterberry Maresh Pinot Noir “Old Vines” (Willamette Valley, Oregon) – Simply put, Jim Maresh crafts some of our country’s best Pinot Noirs, and this is a new one for him. A blend of grapes from his family’s old Maresh Vineyard along with fruit from the neighboring Weber Vineyard, this recently was one of the top scoring Oregon Pinots of the vintage. “Pale to medium ruby in color, the 2016 Pinot Noir Old Vines has a lovely pure nose of pink peppercorn, dried black tea leaves, red and black licorice and violets with dried cranberries, red cherries and layers and layers of spice.” – Wine Advocate – 96 points
4. Surprise Wine –This is a special treat, as Vinous Media had this as one of their top-rated California Pinot Noirs of the ’15 vintage! You’ll have to stop by to see what it is and taste it. But trust me, it’s worth the price of entry!
