K&L Notes

Marimar Estate is centered around the mature vines of Don Miguel Vineyard in the Green Valley sub-AVA of the Russian River Valley. These vines, dating back to the 1980s, produce wonderfully concentrated and flavorful Pinot Noir combining bold, ripe, red fruits with earthy spices and cool-climate freshness and balance. We managed to secure the last remaining cases of this wine right in time for the 95-point score to drop from Decanter Magazine! Our winery-direct, special hidden price is close to half the regular retail price for this revered bottling. Stock up while you can! (Ryan Woodhouse, K&L Domestic Wine Buyer)

The timing on this deal was very fortuitous, and you, our loyal customers are gonna reap the reward! Marimar Estate recently reached out to us about the possibility of forming a winery direct relationship. Shortly thereafter I was browsing the newly published results of the Decanter World Wine Awards for 2021, and low and behold...a 95 point score for the "La Masia - Don Miguel Vineyard" Pinot Noir is staring me in the face. A quick call to the winery and we had secured every last case of the wine at a stellar price. The wine is classic Russian River Pinot - beautifully deep, spiced cherry fruit abounds, baking spice, dust earth tones, a touch of leaf litter. It's medium plus bodied, with a nice fruit, structure, acid balance. There's plenty of forward fruit but also some more complex earthy, ferrous tones that make this the complete package. I'm thrilled to be able to offer this 95 point, single vineyard Pinot, from a great producer, at such a reasonable price! I highly doubt we'll see this combination again anytime soon, so if you like top notch Russian River Pinot, but don't like paying top dollar for it...it's time to load up!
Top Value! Drink from 2021 to 2027
