Killer value-driven Pinot Noir is the name of the game in this week's well-timed pre-4th of July blowout deal. Here's an insanely under-priced yankee doodle dandy of a California Pinot that will add real vinous fireworks to your 4th of July picnic for a song.
At less than $10 a bottle, Pinot with real varietal character is incredibly hard to find, but the 2010 Lucky Star Pinot Noir proved to be quite the delicious exception. There were more than a few double takes when we first tasted it. Needless to say we immediately bought everything we could get and so should you!
Lucky Star winemaker David Elliott cut his teeth on the great Crus of Burgundy and honed his Pinot Noir chops working harvests in Australia, New Zealand and California before teaming up with the Lucky Star folks in 2005. With the 2010 Lucky Star Pinot Noir, he has pulled off a masterful blend, working with multiple vineyard sources from Napa, Sonoma and Lodi. Clearly the cooler-than-normal conditions in 2010 played into his hand as this lively Pinot Noir wowed us with its uncommon freshness and energy.
On the nose this cuvee brings bright, freshly crushed red fruits, chalky minerals and hints of rose petals and herbs. On the palette it gets voluptuous - crushed cherries, strawberry compote, and stewed plums. It has good interplay between lush fruit and nervy acid; a great mid-weight Pinot for the buck.
We also weren't at all surprised to see that the 2010 Lucky Star Pinot was named "Best of Class" in the San Francisco Chronicle's Wine Competition beating out 96 other Pinots in the $20 and under category! Frankly, it's hard to believe this wine is only $7.97 a bottle.
Don't look this gift horse Pinot in the mouth. Our Eblasts have been selling out in a matter of hours. Pinot Noir with this kind of quality to price ratio is gonna go real fast, so don't hesitate to pull the trigger on this one.
