Enriquez Estate Wines
2011 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir
California: Sonoma County: Sonoma Coast
Coast Below Cost
Major sleeper of a deal alert!
Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir, with nine years of maturity, for a head-snapping near 70% OFF. Caught us by complete surprise as we featured this at $35 years back and even then it seemed like a steal!
Enriquez Estate is a tiny project started by a first-generation Mexican-American family. They’re a very tiny family-run operation, making just 500-700 cases each year - definitely not something you’ll find anywhere else. If tasted from a blinder, you’d NEVER imagine it cost $16. Seriously, this is bumpin’ with lip-smacking smooth red fruit and a fascinating amount of complexity at this price. Even with nine years of age, it’s remarkably fresh, showing sweet red cherry and strawberry jam, Asian spices, and earthy soil. Just straight up honest, well-crafted Pinot designed for immediate enjoyment at any hour of the day, any night of the week. And THAT PRICE THOUGH!! Astounding, really, to find a bargain-priced Pinot like this.
Not much else to say here except grab as much as you can. Should be the easiest decision you’ll make today. Snag up cases if you have room. At this price, with just about 70% off it’s a screaming good bargain but there’s not much to go around. Just don’t miss out!!!
Somewhere between pale garnet and mahogany, fading gently.
Dried cherry, black cherry, cranberry, hibiscus, sassafras, summer forest, subtle gunpowder.
Rainier cherry, cranberry, orange peel, red plum, subtle spice, earth, and a hint of graphite.
Very long, revealing more spice and earthen elements.
Anything with wild mushrooms, and as exotic as you can find them.
