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.

Juicy and lively on the palate, offering sweet red and dark berry and floral pastille flavors along with suggestions of cola and spicecake. The smooth, sweet finish shows mounting tannins and an echoing floral pastille quality."

2013 Patz & Hall

  • Pinot Noir
  • Jenkins Ranch
  • Sonoma Coast
  • California
  • Red
  • 750 ml

"Its deep ruby/purple hue is followed by beautiful aromas of wild mountain blue and black fruits, sweet raspberries, forest floor and spring flowers. As this meaty, rich, complex Pinot sits in the glass, notes of slow-cooked pot roast and bouquet garni also emerge. Already delicious, this beauty should continue to age nicely for 7-10 years."

"Captivating scents of black raspberry, minerals, licorice and lavender. Dense, sweet and spicy, with raspberry and crushed rock flavors showing an almost chocolatey richness and communicating an impression of chewy extract. Finishes with serious but fine-grained tannins and excellent juicy length. Has the stuffing and structure to age."

2014 Felton Road

  • Pinot Noir
  • Bannockburn
  • Central Otago
  • New Zealand
  • Red
  • 750 ml

"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."

2014 Brick House

  • Pinot Noir
  • Les Dijonnais
  • Ribbon Ridge
  • Oregon
  • Red
  • 750 ml

"It has a very refined and delineated bouquet with brambly red berry fruit, cranberry and wild strawberry mixed with subtle sous-bois notes. It might sound cliched, but it is very Burgundian in style. The palate is medium-bodied with refined, crisp redcurrant and cranberry fruit, neatly integrated new oak that will require another 12-18 months to be fully integrated, with very satisfying substance on the finish. This is exquisite."

  • La Boheme
  • Yamhill-Carlton

  • Red
  • 750 ml

"A more broody and introspective nose than its peers: blackberry and wild hedgerow, tightly wound at the moment. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannin, the 15% whole cluster lending a subtle forest floor note, good density in the mouth with firm backbone on the finish."

2013 Cattleya Wines

  • Pinot Noir
  • Donum Vineyard
  • Sonoma
  • California
  • Red
  • 750 ml

"Its deeper violet/purple color is followed by sensational notes of black raspberries, crushed violets, wet rock, toasted spice and sage brush. Medium to full-bodied, layered, and beautifully textured and concentrated, it has impeccable purity, ripe tannin and ample, juicy acidity that shows on the palate and finish. It's good now in a youthful, vibrant style, but will be better with bottle age."

Plenty of acid crunch, clear whole bunch influence on both palate and nose, and web-like, deep, fine tannins; detailed, light and shade."

  • Hirsh Vineyard
  • Sonoma
  • California
  • Red
  • 750 ml

"Dark, rich and explosive, this possesses magnificent depth and pedigree to burn. The flavors are dense, sweet and wonderfully nuanced throughout. A wine of extraordinary, almost Nebbiolo-like aromatic intensity and firm tannin, the Hirsch is going to need at least a few years to unwind, but it is very clearly a special wine. Hints of rose petal, mint and sweet red berry linger on the long, enticing finish."
