QPR ALERT!! A daily drinker for the Pinot lovers thanks to our 43% discount, the Fossil Point Edna Valley Pinot Noir.
This one hits it out of the park on the QPR (quality to price ratio) scale folks! Given what you typically have to spend to get excellent Pinot Noir, it's not often this variety comes up as an affordable daily drinker option.
Today's 100% Pinot Noir comes from the Edna Valley and was aged in neutral and once-used French oak barrels for 11 months.
This is the little brother to the $55 Center of Effort Pinot we recently offered. And even though it is less than half the price, it gets some of the same careful hands-on winemaking treatment with night-harvested fruit and small lot fermentations with daily punchdowns by hand.
The previous vintage (2017) was awarded 91 points from Wine Enthusiast. There are no outside ratings yet on the 2018 vintage we are offering today, but we put it in that same category at 91-93 points. That's pretty amazing for Pinot Noir under $15 a bottle.
This wine normally retails for $22, with a few sellers going as low as $19-$20. 5,650 cases were produced.
Through today's Insider Deal we're slashing that price all the way down to $14 a bottle plus just $5 for shipping.
That means you get 6 bottles of the 2018 Fossil Point Edna Valley Pinot Noir for just $83.99, a discount of 36% on the wine and 43% after factoring in the additional savings from our $5 shipping.
Buy multiples and you save even more since you'll never pay more than $5 shipping, no matter how many 6-packs you buy.
This 6-pack deal is available to ship to the following states: AZ, CA, CO, CT, DC, FL, IA, IL, LA, MA, MD, ME, MI, MN, MO, MT, NC, NE, NH, NV, NY, OH, OK, OR, PA, TX, VA, WA, WV and WY. (These states are dependent on the individual licenses of the offering winery. Future deals may have more or less states available.)

From the winery:
Our Pinot Noir wines are rooted in the Edna Valley AVA, on the coastal margins of San Luis Obispo. Here, cool marine air fosters ideal conditions for Pinot Noir, yielding small clusters with distinct floral aromas and prevailing flavors of bright cherry and bramble. Our winemaking relies entirely upon traditional methods and is guided by a respect for the inherent quality of the fruit. We harvest in the early hours and deliver the clusters still cold and intact for careful processing. Fermentation is conducted in small lots with daily punchdowns by hand, prior to aging in a selection of neutral and once-used French oak barrels.
This vintage is classically mid-weight with pretty ripe red plum, orange peel, and pomegranate flavors. Careful use of French oak frames the wine without obscuring herbal scents of marjoram and black tea. Balanced in acidity and texture, this wine is a superb table partner to crispy pork belly, roasted duck or miso-glazed Black Cod.
Produced & Bottled by Fossil Point Wines
The 2018 Fossil Point Edna Valley Pinot Noir begins with quite an enticing and lovely aroma of cherry, a little cranberry and some other brambly fruit plus licorice and lots of herbal notes too.
Taking a sip reveals a fresh and tasty Pinot Noir that is ready for immediate consumption. With great balance, this is a fantastic example of the variety at this price point.
It features black cherry and a little cranberry just like the nose but the flavors are nice and juicy in the mouth. There's a touch of strawberry too when tasting along with excellent streaks of well-integrated spice and continuing herbal notes.
With good acidity and a relatively smooth mouthfeel, this is definitely a daily drinker to stock up on for the Pinot lovers.
It ends dry and long with a little lingering spice. Yum, this is just a pleasure!
