tart.142654Cherry Pie, one of our best selling pinots over $50/bottle, has recently released a new label at a price that you will find hard to beat.  While we were closed we received 10 cases (that’s all we could purchase at one time) and now I want to offer it to you first. From Cherry Pie and winemaker Jason Woodbridge, I am excited to introduce to you Cherry Tart.”  Woodbridge specializes in small production fine wines, but also recognizes the need for that under $20/bottle wine too.  His first example of this was our best selling wine of 2012…”If You See Kay” a red blend from Italy, and now we hope to  follow up that success with Cherry Tart Pinot Noir.

2012 Cherry Tart (by Cherry Pie) Pinot Noir
(California) $19.99/bottle…

Winery Tasting Notes:
Cherry Tart Pinot Noir exhibits notes reminiscent of cherry pie, plums, cranberries and a hint of wild strawberries. This beautifully rich, pure Pinot Noir offers abundant aromas of cloves, sweet apple skins and Rainier cherries. Full bodied, a rich texture with fresh flavors of Bing cherry and red plum lead to a long finish. Vanilla oak and lively acidity round it out and leave you wanting more.”




I cracked this pinot open over the weekend, and was floored!  Cherry Tart has bright acidity and is rich, lush and great juicy fruit. It is sure to please any pinot noir fanatics palate, and you would be hard pressed to find a pinot noir of this character, especially for under 20 Bucks!
