Over $20 quality at a well under $20 price. Get the smooth, juicy and balanced Ballard Lane Pinot Noir at this incredible price but only for the next day.
Good Pinot Noir under $20 is a tough nut to crack. Getting one for as little as $12 a bottle is darn near crazy talk. Well today we've got an award winner for you from the Miller Family of Wines.

The wine is aged 4-5 months on new French oak. 11,371 cases were produced.
The vintage we are offering here today was a gold medal winner in the 2020 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition.
Through today's Insider Deal you can get 6 bottles of the 2018 Ballard Lane Pinot Noir for just $71.99 ($12 a bottle) plus only $5 shipping.

From the winery:
AROMATICS: Vivid, ripe black cherry, dark berry fruits, cranberry, baking spice, toasty French oak, confectionary edge.
PALATE: Ripe and delicious upfront with surprising depth and flavor, richness and ripe berry character finish with hints of toasted french oak, coffee, and cocoa nibs.
FOOD PAIRING: Tri-tip, BBQ beans and a green salad (Santa Maria style), Sautéed mushrooms in red wine and garlic sauce, cheese & salami plate.
The 2018 Ballard Lane Pinot Noir begins with a pleasing aroma of black cherry, cola, cranberry, strawberry, a little baking spice and a touch of earth.
The wine tastes smooth and juicy with some nice toasty oak accents. It's a bit on the simple side but pretty darn easy to drink. Featuring similar flavors to the nose this is just a solid, balanced Pinot at a great price.
It ends dry, long and tasty. Typically you'd have to spend at least $20 a bottle to get Pinot Noir of this quality, but not today!
