Without any large scale offerings and a historical difficulty in ripening more than three tons to the acre, Oregon Pinot Noir has never been “cheap”. As such, it took me years to get my hands on a top shelf Willamette Valley Pinot at a great price with Lot 531 Pinot at $25, so how on earth is today's release available at about half the price?
Well, start by adding 36% more acreage in five years, with the last four of those five years being just about as picture perfect as harvests get in Oregon. Then, factor in that Lot 539 is a blend of 79% Willamette Valley and 21% Rogue Valley Pinot Noir (just 6% shy of the 85% qualifying mark for having the Willamette Valley designation), and you’ve got the makings for a killer Oregon Pinot at less than half the price. Showing all the pretty fruit and structure of Willamette Pinot, the final blend is complemented with warmer Rogue components that impart a rich and juicy element to the palate. Trust me, it’s a better wine this way. With the base wine here selling for $25 a bottle and a significant portion of the blend coming from a $50/bottle program, I believe this the most stunning value in Oregon Pinot today.
