1. NV Elvio Tintero Vino Rosso (Piemonte, Italy) – Cantine Elvio Tintero’s little Vino Rosso is one of the cheapest ways to get Nebbiolo into your belly! A blend of 40% Nebbiolo, 40% Barbera, 10% Dolcetto, and 10% Cabernet Franc fermented entirely in stainless steel, this is a real charmer. Bright, light, tangy and bursting with bright red fruits and a touch of earth, this is an absolute no brainer for Pinot and Gamay admirers.
2. 2012 Left Coast Cellars Pinot Noir “Cali’s Cuvee” (Willamette Valley, Oregon) – It’s our Wine of the Weeks and it’s another exceptional Oregon Pinot Noir from the incredible 2012 vintage. Rated 92 points by Wine & Spirits Magazine, this medium bodied, silky smooth, and complex Pinot Noir is the perfect partner for poultry and earthy root vegetables. Heck, at this price, it’s not a bad idea to invest in a bottle or twelve for Thanksgiving dinner!
3. 2013 Brumont Gascogne Rouge (Southwestern France): Madiran-based producer and winemaker Alain Brumont works magic with the Merlot grape by combining it with the rugged Tannat grape, a specialty of Southwestern France. The resulting wine balances the plush, fruit forward texture of Merlot with the more earthy, rugged character of Tannat to create an ideal grilling wine.
