J & J Eger Eged Hegy Kekfrankos 2012

Eger, Hungary

$27.99 / each

Description:

Kekfrankos is the Hungarian equivalent of Austrian Blaufrankish and this floral, juicy, blackberry-scented example is just stellar. Made by Master Sommelier Jon Szabo, this is a perfect wine for fans of richly-textured Pinot Noir. You'll see gorgeous aromatic notes of violets, pomegranate molasses and licorice here, matched by wonderful density and vibrant acidity. Only 500 cases were made in total, and the wine was aged in large Hungarian oak casks and bottled unfiltered.

Machine Breaker We The People Pinot Noir 2014

Machine Breaker We The People Pinot Noir 2014

Willamette Valley, Oregon

$27.99 / each

Description:

Machine Breaker follows a very hands-off, naturalist approach to winemaking and this fabulous Pinot bottling called "We The People" demonstrates the delicious results of non-interventionist vineyard and winery practices. Super alive and energetic, and teeming with candied violets and wild red berries, this Willamette Valley Pinot was dry farmed on own-rooted vines and was bottled unfined and unfiltered. Delicate aromas of woodsy underbrush round out this very cool find which was aged in neutral oak barrels.
