2016 Haden Fig, Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley

A Gem From The Willamette Valley!
Savory cherry, lush fruit... absolutely charming!

Simply charming!

In the last decade, the Willamette Valley has established itself as a world-class Pinot Noir wine growing region.

With each new vintage, we endlessly swish and swirl to find the best value for our readers.

We can say with certainty that the 2016 Haden Fig Pinot Noir is in the sweet spot of our pursuit.

This sub-$30 Pinot Noir (which is difficult to come by these days) is a windfall from the Willamette.

Vivid black cherry, raspberry, spice, cigar box, forest underbrush, integrated tannins and a long finish. Charming, savory fruit melds with the seamless structure and near perfect finish. You rarely - if ever - see such depth and personality in a Pinot Noir at this price point.

What's the secret?

In addition to implementing both organic and biodynamic farming practices, the winery dry farms. This means there is no irrigation, forcing the vines to reach deep into the soil extracting water and nutrients.

Haden Fig is a real overachiever and a must have by the case(s). It is the perfect Pinot to transition into Autumn with its spice and Burgundian flair.

Enjoy now and over the next three years - though we're certain there won't be a drop left by that time.

Enjoy!

$24.95 per bottle / $299.40 per case
