Mission Briefing

Codename:

Hole in one

They said it couldn’t be done.

No, we do not mean teaching your cat to use the toilet. We’re talking about finding a real, genuine Carneros Pinot for under $20. But we’re out here crushing bottles, right and left, searching for the ONE.

And eventually we found it. A straight up LUSTY, toasty, juicy, plush Pinot.

Right now, while it lasts, you can score some for an absurd 60% off the $45 price. For the non-math inclined that’s $18 per bottle. Say whaaat?

Most Pinot Noir you find at the store under $20 is… how do we put it… trash. It’s a barren wasteland riddled with barely drinkable bottles. The notoriously fickle grape needs extra love at every step of the process. Of course, Shannon Ridge is responsible for this. Their entire collection seems to over-deliver for the prices. And Crossbow is their first ever Pinot Noir…

They got their hands on some prime grapes from the best region in California for Pinot. And it has everything you want. It’s a juicy, heart-throbbing endless stream of black cherry, raspberry jam, POM juice concentrate, and sweet cola. Lush, plush, and round it’s just straight-up irresistible from the instant you pop the cork. Grab your favorite local pizza, or better yet fire up one of those badass Ooni ovens and turn out a few of your own pies while you enjoy a glass or three.

You can spend a lot more and get a lot less… however there’s barely enough to feed our growing Pinot fans.

Drinks like something priced twice as much, and for $18?! Yikes! Not a chance this makes it through the day, so move quickly!
