2011 Bench Lands Pinot Noir
Umpqua Valley, Oregon 
$159 per bottle | $205.20 per case

We love classically-styled Oregon Pinot Noir here, but its one drawback is that, like all great Pinot Noir, it needs some time to show its best. At the rate you (and we) drink it up, we rarely have the opportunity to offer it at peak age, so we’re especially excited to feature Brandborg’s 2011 Bench Lands as our Wine of the Week. Aromatic spices and savory, mushroomy earth add some teeth to the dark but refined cherry and tea rose flavors. Speaking of mushrooms, this is particularly good with the current wild spring crop of morels and chanterelles. - Ryan Stotz, Store Manager, H&F Bottle Shop
