Irvine Family Vineyards Pinot Noir Willamette Valley 2012  - Last Bottle

Irvine Family Vineyards Pinot Noir Willamette Valley 2012

Power To The Potent Pinot!! OVER 60% OFF! We flipped for this powerful, juicy Willamette pinot upon tasting it, but the PRICE we managed to score??!! C’mon!! We live for negotiating sweet deals like this. Read the review! “...full-bodied, loaded with flavors of black cherry, black coffee and barrel toast...full and forward…” INDEED! This simply blew us away, but $13???? It’s silly.

Got some?? Better hurry...We bought every single bottle the winery would sell us (we think we cleaned ‘em out, too), but it’s probably not enough to satisfy this nation’s growing need for screaming bargain pinot noir at this level of delish.

OK, OK, whew, sorry, just had to get that across. Seriously, it is like 63% off. Amazing. Anyway, to the wine ---- it’s coming from arguably Oregon’s finest appellation, Williamette Valley, from 2400 foot (!) elevation vineyards, and it just POPS in the glass and in your mouth...imagine grabbing a pomegranate, a couple of ripe cherries and a piece of red whips and crushing it all in your hand. It’s SO fresh and lively, but then, suddenly, in your mouth, it puts on weight and throws a curveball of creaminess, mocha, and cola to mix it up with the berries. Super silky, almost glycerin-y on the palate, and a nice spiciness (though it's not at all oaky, really) hangs on for a good 30 seconds after you swallow it. Crazy good for our absurd price (what are we even doing?) and a HUGE, colossal, leviathan-sized no-brainer if you love pinot.

DO IT, but do it quick! First come, first served…!

In 1997, Doug & Dionne Irvine returned to their roots in Oregon with the desire to raise their daughters in the same place that they had such fond childhood memories. Choosing Ashland, they soon discovered that the 80 acre ranch they would call home turned out to be an incredibly unique vineyard site. The first vines were planted in 2007, and the journey continued from there when Doug’s sister and brother in law, Kelly and Duane Roberts, joined Doug and Dionne and created Irvine and Roberts Vineyards.
