Tchelistcheff's Pride

At today’s price, today’s very special wine will not last the day.

We’re proud to present you with an extraordinary deal on one amazing of a Pinot Noir.

Today’s Furthermore Wines 2015 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir comes from the winemaking team-genius of Chad Richard, Robert Zeches and Shalini Sekhar, who collectively won the prestigious 2015 Andre Tchelistcheff Winemakers of the Year Award.

This Pinot Noir shows nice long legs which coat the inside of the glass as you swirl this garnet colored Pinot Noir around. Taking a sniff, you are greeted with clean, fresh, fruit-forward aromas of Bing cherry, plum compote, maraschino cherry, allspice, and molasses gingerbread. On the palate, there’s ample stone fruit with dark plum, cherries and apricot tones alongside hallmarks of refined wine such as leather and pipe tobacco. The mouthfeel is bright and approachable with medium-tannin alcohol that drives fruit and a very pleasant finish. The perfect pairing for Thanksgiving dinner, it’ll go with everything, from the turkey and stuffing to the cranberry sauce - and the rest of the trimmings.
