James Suckling, 92 points
"Aromas of dried violet flowers and red cherries lead to a palate that offers a supple, mid-weight impression with wild raspberries and red cherries. Drink in the next five years."
It has been one of our great sources of pride to have discovered Et Fille several years ago! This father/daughter team (“Et Fille” means "and daughter" in French) makes elegant, pure, bright, flavor-filled and silky wines that run very much under the radar, generally -- which is good for us (and you)! The price we have today is simply ASTOUNDING for 92-point pinot at this level!!
2016 gave Willamette Valley warm temps, ripe fruit, and perfumey aromatics. Here’s the simple instructions: Box arrives. Tear it open ASAP, grab a corkscrew and do the workout portion of this exercise. Inhale deeply the cherry, the raspberry extract, the dried flowers and softly spiced tea leaves. It’s light on its feet, polished, silky and fine, and simply outrageously satisfying at $22! Wow!
Only a few hundred cases were made and we have about 20 to sell -- while they last that is….pinot this good priced like this is rare enough to disappear in a flash!
