Blog - A Pair of Top Pinot Noirs for Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is just around the corner! Pinot Noir is the wine of choice for many on Thanksgiving, and we have a stunning pair of limited production wines that will pair perfectly with your turkey dinner. Both of these wines scored 98 points from Jeb Dunnuck, and these are two of the top wines from the “stellar” 2021 Oregon vintage.

2021 Hope Well Pinot Noir Eola-Amity Hills - 98 points

“Stunning aromatics lift from the 2021 Pinot Noir Eola-Amity Hills, which pours a jeweled ruby and offers a mix of red and black fruits, an amazing floral perfume, pine, and crushed stones, all well-interwoven. Seamless on the palate, this medium to full-bodied red has a silky mineral texture, with velvety tannins and gorgeous concentration throughout. With long-lasting energy and outstanding purity, it’s hard to resist now and feels as though it will last for the next 15 or more years. This is one of the best wines I have ever tasted from Mimi Casteel.” - Jeb Dunnuck

2021 Kelley Fox Wines Pinot Noir Carter Vineyard - 98 points

“From 40-year-old self-rooted vines that are organically farmed, the 2021 Pinot Noir Carter Vineyard is a ripe ruby hue and offers notes of grenadine, candied roses, and cinnamon. Its tannins are ripe and fine, and it fills the palate with ripe red fruit, apricot, and notes of crushed stone along with mouthwatering salinity. Drink 2023-2038.” - Jeb Dunnuck These Pinot Noirs will surely be noticed and adored wherever they’re served!

“The short one-liner on 2021 is that this is a stellar vintage, with the wines displaying an outstanding balance of ripeness, depth, and tension, with the top wines offering broad drinking windows… this is a vintage worthy of your investment of time and money. They offer tremendous value across all categories, frequently at a fraction of the price of wines from California and Burgundy, although they are often equally compelling.” - Jeb Dunnuck
