Wally’s Wine and Spirits

“Proprietor/Winemaker Seth Cripe told us that his 2015 North Coast Pinot Noir was his best-ever, but we had no idea it was going to be this good! How he has managed to cram all this California Pinot Noir goodness into a bottle is truly a Penn & Teller worthy magic trick. The color is gorgeous, and the flavor profile even delivers hints of true Burgundian character laced with a bit of Oregonian earthiness. This Pinot Noir is not the best of both worlds; it’s the best of all worlds! Stick a bottle in the fridge for an hour or so to get it down to proper red-wine-savoring temperature (about 60 degrees), then twist off the easy-opening cap, pour and enjoy. We know you’ll be back for more.”

“Here’s another big bang-for-the-buck red. Twenty dollar Pinot Noirs that reach this level of quality are far and few between, especially ones that sport a Russian River Valley address. Founder/Winemaker Seth Cripe has garnered much attention since his initial 2008 release of 848 cases. His new 2010, a combination of Saralee, Cameron and Occidental vineyard fruit, yielded 1,400 cases of a strawberry cherry- red currant-scented Pinot Noir, and they are going fast. A newcomer definitely worth checking out.” –
