J. Daan: Bargain Oregon Pinot Noir

This was a great find during our tour of the Willamette Valley. After tasting this pinot at the Carlton Winemakers Studio, I was shocked to glance down and see that it was only $22 bucks.

J Daan 2005 Pinot Noir Willamette Valley is a lovely well balanced pinot noir with a lighter burgundian style. Amazing pinot for the price.

The Carlton Winemakers Studio is a great place to stop in Oregon Wine Country. Check out the "green" construction" and the diverse selection of wine. Wine cooperatives are a great place for winemakers to get their start without all of the overhead of building their own winery. The camaraderie and cross pollination of techniques makes cooperatives incubators for the next up and coming winemakers for the region. Get the wines now while they are still a bargain. A great example of an alumni is Scott Paul Wines now making fabulous wines nearby.

This looks like a great x-mas gift. I am going to go to the wine bar in culver city and see if they carry it. They seem to specialize in Oregon wines.
