Best Pinor Noir Rated 90+ Points For Every Budget

Many wine lovers share a love affair with the Pinot Noir grape, maybe it is the fact that it can be so difficult to grow, but when it is grown in the right soil with the perfect weather conditions and at the hands of a great vigneron, aromas of soft red berry fruit mix with heady, earthy hints of mushrooms and white truffles will unravel even the most sophisticated drinker. The best Pinot Noir from California in the Sonoma Coast and Willamette Valley, Oregon tend to show more forward fruit flavors while wines from Burgundy, Pinot Noir’s Motherland, often produce wines with higher acidity and earthy tones as the more dominant aromatic profile.

"This texturally impressive (luscious, graceful and generous) new release from J is their first multi-appellation wine. It may be the juiciest Pinot we have tasted (all our editors agreed).

"Bright ruby-red. Lively, spice-accented aromas and flavors of fresh raspberry and cherry, with subtle anise and white pepper notes adding complexity. Bright and penetrating on the palate, showing no excess fat. A sexy floral nuance emerges on the back half and the berry note repeats on the finish, which is given shape by even tannins"

"A generously fruity, just-ripe and refined wine, this offers classic notions of the appellation in a warm, welcoming vintage, from rhubarb, cranberry and cherry to cola spice and clove. Still young, it shows an intensity that should meld and mellow in the bottle in short order."

  • Red
  • 750 ml

"Offers blackberry and briary scents on the nose with a touch of earthiness - well defined and quite vivacious in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with dusky blackberry and blueberry fruit. It exerts a gentle grip in the mouth and delivers white pepper sprinkled over the finish that is nicely detailed. This should drink well over the next 8-10 years and at this price, I would be loading up."

Supple and beautifully layered throughout, the Sonoma Coast hits all the right notes. A final burst of fruit rushes across the palate on the refreshing, inviting wine. There is so much to like."

Juicy and broad on the palate, offering sappy blackberry and bitter cherry flavors and a suggestion of spicecake. Shows excellent clarity and power on the gently tannic finish, which leaves behind gently sweet dark fruit and floral pastille notes."

"This is a big wine, dense, ruby in color, with terrific fruit intensity, but the tannins still dominate, and the wine has good acidity and a backward personality but it's not austere by any means. It’s certainly capable of lasting at least a decade."

Rich with plenty of berry fruit on the palate, the wine is full-bodied, pure and well-balanced. This should drink well and last for at least a decade or more."

"Pretty, aromatic and lifted. Crushed flowers, hard candy, sweet red berries, rose petal and sage are all laced together. Delicate, silky and nuanced in the glass, the 2014 is a pretty wine to drink now and over the next few years. The style is delicate, lifted and gracious, with lovely inner sweetness and terrific overall balance. The 2014 was done with fully destemmed fruit, although a slight savory edge suggest some whole clusters."

"A handy array of bright red berries, orange citrus rind, then toasty mocha oak spice, some darker red plum and mouth-wateringly sweet fruit aromas on offer. Very bright, just-ripe fruits, liquorice and cinnamon, this smells vibrant and full of life. The palate has a soft, supple and creamy core with a glossy, fluffy mid-palate; tannins fan out even and long, smooth, velvety and quite plush, gently musky. Good balance and approachability, concentrated and pure."
