Get it before it’s gone!
"Legendary Tony Soter is certainly among the most accomplished winemakers in the United States. The Soter-owned Mineral Springs Ranch is fresher and more delicate than the overwhelming majority of Pinots made in Oregon, many of which have turned heavy in recent years, much like their California cousins. This Pinot is immediately seductive and complex with aromas of cherry, followed closely by distinctive and captivating notes of minerality. This is seamless from start to finish. An elegant and lasting finish lingers. This is delicious now but also a great bet for the future. Something to note, the 2014 is a great vintage for Oregon, so this certainly going to be a big scorer among the wine reviewers. Get it before it’s gone."

“A seductive style.....
.....that captures effusively ripe peach and nectarine flavors. Features a juicy texture that's broad and layered. Despite using no oak, this leaves the impression of spicy, jazzy wood on the lingering finish.”

"..... is literally a third the price of most of its competitors....."
"I originally wrote this review in March of 2015. At that time it was literally half the price of its competitors. Now after special price reduction from our supplier, we can offer this to you at “literally at a third of the price of its competitors”

"I’m quite often asked do we really need another Barbera? Well I say “YES”, especially when it is possibly the Italian wine value of this young year. At $8 and change by the case this Barbera d’Alba is literally half the price of most of its competitors. Believe me, there is no slip in quality either, this mid-weight Barbera is simply wonderful. This is a beautiful, elegant and restrained wine that captures the essence of Barbera. In an age of super-sized Barberas, this is a wine that impresses for its elegance and understatement rather than for its sheer muscle. It’s nice to get a wine with tons of style at this price point."

“Always a popular offering from this winery, this crisp, fruity white is round and robust on entry. It harmoniously combines juicy acidity with flavorful waves of peach, lime and guava, while the finish is laced with nutmeg.”

"..... A Platinum Award winner....."

“Thanks to a fair amount of charred oak, this is a wine for fans of a smoky style. The fruit is up to the task, and delivers a blackberry and leaf profile under the wood smoke. Try this with a charcuterie platter. A Platinum Award winner at the 2016 Sommelier Challenge International Wine Competition.”
