This Week’s Monday Madness

Steve and Carol Girard moved from Napa to Oregon’s Willamette Valley for one very simple reason: they were bitten by the Pinot Noir bug.

So they packed up, moved north, and purchased a vineyard, with the stated aim of making ‘sinfully sexy’ Pinot. They produced the first vintage of Benton Lane Pinot in 1991; 29 years later, the winery is still family-owned and still producing 100% estate-grown, 100% organc/sustainable, and 100% delicious Pinot Noir. Honest;y, it might be 200% delicious.

The vineyards slope to the east, allowing vines to bask in the morning sun. Rich in volcanic Jory soil, and above the valley fog but below the windy hilltops, this land seems destined to create great Pinot.

The ultimate blend of red (cherry, cranberry, raspberry) and black (cassis, blackberry, black cherry) fruit, plus bittersweet cocoa, spice, and sweet vanilla oak. The balance is just gorgeous, the finish long and silky. In short, I’d say it’s sinfully sexy.

The price? Just a sign of the times. This wine is traditionally sold in restaurants. Right now, not so much. Silver lining: drink it at home, and at a ridiculous bargain, too.

Online special available for in-store pickup after 12 PM today. Available until Sunday, April 12, or until product runs out.

About Pour Richards Wine and Spirits
who we are

Connecting Good Friends with Great Wine

The idea that became Pour Richard’s was born of many late nights drinking wine with old friends. At least half of every couple worked in wine sales. Sooner or later, after a couple of great bottles, we’d start talking about how we never got to sell our favorite wines. Many of the best bottles in our respective warehouses never saw the light of day because we were all way too busy fulfilling our quotas on the big national brands. Small family vineyards, fun new regions? Those mostly sat there until we closed them out. “Wouldn’t it be great”, we all said, “if we could sell the things we drink?” So, that’s exactly what we’re doing! At Pour Richard’s, you’ll drink like an industry insider – a well-edited selection of wine, beer, and spirits, all at great values.
