Insane Value Pinot. In Time For The Summer. Grapes Sourced from Ponzi. Will Sell Out.

The toughest grape to make a great wine at a reasonable price is Pinot Noir. The grape ripens late, does well in cool climates which makes it hard to ripen and the skins are very thin and prone to splitting. This wine which I tasted today breaks the mold. This superb Pinot is bursting with juicy red berry fruit, is fresh and alive, has great balance and length. The wine is drinking superbly but has the stuffing to improve in the bottle and Wow what a value to enjoy this summer. I loved the fig notes on the back palate. The 2014 RouteStock 99W Pinot Noir from Willamette Valley is an absolute stunner Under $20, with a huge 91pts by Spectator very hard to beat. RouteStock is a label set up by the Wilson Daniels Company who represents some of the finest Wineries in the US and Europe. They are able to source grapes from some of the finest vineyards and made by some of the finest Winemakers to make RouteStock.

Route 99W is part of the Pacific Coast Highway which travels north/south through some of Willamette Valley’s most notable vineyards. On a drive down Route 99W, you will pass many of the vineyards that supplied perfectly ripe grapes for this Willamette Valley Pinot Noir. The grapes and winemaking for this Pinot gem is one of Willamette’s finest producers, the great Ponzi. Ponzi is one of the blue chip producers for Oregon Pinot and their wines are not cheap. Literally double the price of this stunner. The wines was aged in French oak of which a third was new. I strongly recommend.

“*Smart Buy* Fresh and inviting, open-textured and refined, with plum, currant and floral flavors that dance through the supple finish. Shows generosity and finesse, finishing on a roasted note.” WS

“Nicely ripened and yet balanced to firmness with a solid streak of youthful, cherry-like fruit running its length, this well-made, mid-sized Pinot wine goes right to the varietal point. It is slightly juicy and comes with a careful trim of sweet oak, and, if not an especially potent wine, it has the fruity confidence and balance to hold up and improve for several years.” CG
