Named after our left-handed daughter, our Cali’s Cuveé reflects our family’s passion for winemaking and a deep connection to the land where we live and farm. Our hand-tended vines grow on ancient sandstone soils, amid old growth oak forests and Jurassic era fossils. Aged in French oak and bottled on this solar powered estate, our wines are a product of the unique, sustainable ecosystem we call home.
Everyone knows that the Willamette Valley makes some fabulous Pinot Noir. Unfortunately the fact that everyone knows this means it’s hard to find examples under $20. Today we’ve got an excellent one, however, that just squeaks in a couple of dollars under our limit.
The 2015 Left Coast Cellars Cali’s Cuvee Pinot Noir begins with a very pleasing aroma of plum, black cherry, spice, cola and a bit of tomato plant. It gets even better when tasting with plenty of juicy fruit, more cola and a nice earthy streak. Medium-bodied, smooth and easy to drink, this is a really tasty Pinot Noir. Some late developing spice leads into the long, dry finish featuring lingering tobacco and licorice notes.
