"Best In Show" is a name to know!
Our Top 5 of 2019 • #5

Why is the 2017 Three Sticks "Price Family Estates" Pinot Noir in our Top 5?

Simple.  It is, "beautifully balanced and a smoking little wine."  Jeb Dunnuck

Three Sticks is relatively new to Englewood Wine Merchants, however, the players are not.

Who owns Three Sticks?  

Bill Price, who also owns Kistler Vineyards.  

And, who is the winemaker behind this ambrosia?  Bob Carbral, who worked at Williams Selyem from 1998 - 2014. 

After the first sip, you'll understand why this Pinot stands out among its peers:
  • "...allspice and nutmeg touches with concentrated cranberry sauce, red cherry preserves, baked blackberries, cola and woodsmoke." The Wine Advocate 
  • "Luxurious flavors of blueberry, kirsch and dark cherry glide across the palate, with an enveloping creamy texture. Dark chocolate, spice and mocha details show on the fresh, juicy finish."  Wine Spectator
  • "Earth, clove and tree bark tones provide a savory edge of complexity, followed by focused elements of baking spice, orange, pomegranate and strawberry... cohesive and delicious." Wine Enthusiast

Over the past year, it took countless emails and phone calls to procure this Pinot darling.  It was well worth the wait!

Only a handful of cases are available. 

A name to know; enjoy #5 while it lasts!

$64.95 per bottle / $779.40 per case

Summary


DECANTER

97 / 100

"Best In Show"

"Even in potentially cool zones like the foggy Sonoma Coast, there's always a breadth and a grandeur to California's finest Pinot Noirs. What our judges liked so much about this example was the fact that its fundamental scale was no impediment to a sense of finesse and refinement in the fruit. You'll find almost perfumed, violet-and-rose scents behind the fresh plum, while on the palate this is a concentrated and vivacious wine with resonant black-fruit acidity, light tannins, delicious underlying sweetness and mouthwatering purity and freshness."
