Yesterday afternoon around 3:30pm I received a call from one of my distributors. I found it peculiar because he never calls that late because it is near “cut off” time and he is usually scrambling to make last minute orders to be delivered the next day.
“DREW…I got a deal for you that you are gonna love!”
Knowing that this guy is the king of deals I was instantly intrigued. He continues, “I have 20 cases of the 2011 A to Z Wineworks Pinot Noir from Oregon which received 90 Points and was named #55 on the 2013 Wine Spectator Top 100!” ***Side note, the 2014 Wine Spectator Top 100 was just released this week.***
He then told me the price and without hesitation I said, “SOLD…ship that baby for tomorrow!”
So…right now I am sitting next to a stack of 20 cases or 240 bottles that need a happy home. I can’t think of a better Thanksgiving wine for you to enjoy while indulging on that beautiful bird, stuffing, sweet potatoes, cranberries and all of the other fixins!
A little note about A to Z…their whole motto is to offer Aristocratic Wines at Democratic Prices blending one cuvee each vintage of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Gris that deliver the Essence of Oregon. Owned by several “Who’s Who” of the Oregon Wine Community – Deb Hatcher (Eyrie), Bill Hatcher (Domaine Drouhin Oregon), Sam Tannahill (Archery Summit) and Cheryl Francis (Chehalem) and Gregg Popovich (Coach of the San Antonio Spurs) they are accomplishing this feat on a yearly basis!
2011 A to Z WineWorks Pinot Noir (Oregon)
$19.99/bottle or $14.99/bottle on 6+
“Wine Spectator” 90 Points and #55 Top 100 2013 – “This sleek red is tightly packed, with delicate layers of cherry, tobacco and cocoa flavors that mingle against refined tannins, persisting pleasantly on the light-stepping finish. Drink now through 2017.”
