2015 Left Coast Cellars White Pinot Noir
Oregon-Willamette Valley

Winemaker’s Notes: Famed for its diversity to complement nearly any food pairing, our White Pinot Noir is a peoples favorite. Limited skin contact gives the White Pinot Noir its pristine clarity. The wine itself is perfumed with fresh scents and mirrored flavors of Ranier cherry, peach and poached pear. Rich and broad with bright, balancing acidity on the palate and a lingering mineral finish.

2012 Loveblock Pinot Noir
New Zealand-Central Otago

Winemaker’s Notes: Nestled above the snow capped mountains of Central Otago on the Bendigo Loop Road is the small Pinot Noir Vineyard “Someone’s Darling.” The climate and unique terroir combined make this region one of the best for producing premium Pinot Noir. Loveblock is charged with creating the best wine to express this extraordinary place with its unique aspect. Bright red fruits with a savory mushroom layer, followed by sweet strawberry notes. With a hint of oak and balanced drying tannins, the wine lingers with brooding complexity.

90 Points Wine Enthusiast: Winemaker Kim Crawford has turned out a solid effort, ably combining the brash fruit of Central Otago with some measure of finesse. Smoky, campfire-like notes, roasted beets and greens accent black cherry and plum flavors. It’s still a bit crisp and edgy on the finish, but look for the texture to smooth out by the end of 2016.
