There is so much that we can tell you about the 2015 Ayres Pinot Noir, but here is one of the most important things to know: our sales associate David, who lives and breaths French wine, believes that this Oregon stunner is one of the best under $30 Pinot Noirs on the market. Period.

Need more convincing? After we all met and tasted with the owner of Ayres this week, David told us that this particular vintage, the 2015, is the best bottling from Ayres that he has tasted. He praised it for its balance, and classic aromas of nectarine, blackberry, cinnamon, dried herbs and peppermint. Delicate acidity and gentle tannins are in perfect harmony with the fruit on the palate.

The wine is hand farmed, picked, and sorted and made with minimal new oak, and no fining or filtration. This is a dream of a minimalistic wine whose production quality and overall presentation far exceed those of their competitors. The winery is completely sold out of this vintage, so now is your opportunity to stock up at a discount. We’ve got cases ready to fill your orders, but you’ll still want to reach out to Brian to place yours today!
