2015 Waypoint 'Brown Ranch' Pinot Noir Carneros

$39.95

Here’s a classic Carneros beauty, sourced from Brown Ranch, which once funneled fruit into the great Pinot Noirs by Saintsbury. Ripe cherry cola, spiced hibiscus and dried strawberry are accented by spicy cardamom and clove, thanks to the whole cluster fermentation. It’s got brightness and the balance that will make you want sip after sip. It’s an ideal case buy for the Pinot lover in your life.  



Gentle reader, it may surprise you to learn that many of the Napa Valley’s finest, highest-scoring wineries make wine from purchased fruit, and own no vineyards. Bond, Realm, and Schrader all fit this profile. Waypoint represents our relentless effort to stand shoulder to shoulder with this elite group of producers. With all of the mutually beneficial friendships and connections we’ve built over 22 years, we have no shortage of contacts with prime fruit to sell. In 2013, these networks paid off in the greatest way. Enter Tim Milos, our master oenologist and winemaker, who recently scored his first 100 point wine in The Wine Advocate. Tim makes all of our wines, from the Justice trio on down to Broken Spur. We know how talented he is, with an enviable CV featuring the likes of S. Anderson, Opus One, Rubissow, Girard, and Cliff Lede. Now it’s your turn to see what he can do, with these three STUNNING single-vineyard Cabernets. We’re offering them as a collectible 3-pack, for a special price for a limited time. You can only buy these wines here.
