    Willamette Valley Vineyards Whole Cluster Pinot Noir 2007
    Sold Out $21.99
    2013 vintage available for $19.99
    This wine looks a bit over-filtered and is so clear you can read through it (1 of 2). The bouquet is also nothing to write home about, promising nothting special, but sending no warning flags either (2 of 4). Fortunately, this wine tastes much better than it looks and smells. A pleasant if uncomplicated taste rests lightly on the pallet, making pleasant drinking on it's own (6 of 10). Overall, this wine is okay for the price, but it may be to subtle for most food parings (2 of 4). I like this wine for under $20, but I wouldn't age it nor would I serve it with food more substantial than an appetizer platter. TOTAL (11 of 20)

    Beaulieu Vineyard Carneros Pinot Noir 2006
    Sold Out $35.99
    2012 vintage available for $19.99
    Clear and bright, there is still good depth in the color (2 of 2). Nice oak and spice in the nose is really promising (3 of 4). There is a pleasant introduction to a full body. Spices turn into a light fruit in good mouth feel complexity with an enjoyable finsih. (8 of 10). A very nice wine, it is approachable and tasty! TOTAL 16 of 20

    Good color (2 of 2) and a young fruit-forward bouquet still lacks a touch of complexity, but does promise a full body (3 of 4). A very nice presentation, this is not a big fruit bomb, but rather a pleasant medium body wine with a smooth, well blended finish (8 of 10). While excellent in places, all in all, it's just okay (2 of 4). TOTAL 15 of 20
