O’Reilly’s Pinot Noir is widely regarded, particularly in the Northwest, as the best value Pinot Noir on the market year after year. In the three years that we’ve offered it, we receive our allocation in late September upon the new vintage release and run out before the end of the calendar year. This year, we received the following announcement from our distributor, the bottom line of which is “order now and save.” Below is the email we received:
O’Reilly is the “good value” label of David O’Reilly, winemaker and co-owner of Owen Roe Winery. “Good Value” O’Reilly’s wines are made from juice that does not quite fit the recipe for the spectacular Owen Roe wines, and are very reasonably priced. One of the most “blogged” about Oregon Pinots, there are rave reviews for O’Reilly’s Pinot Noir all over the internet.
As you may have heard, 2008 was an excellent vintage in Oregon, and the wines are very exciting. The 2008 O’Reilly’s is a good preview for the vintage– it is a deeply colored wine, and it glows in the glass. It smells great, and on the palate it is loaded with fresh, juicy, intense fruit balanced with great acidity. The mid-palate is detailed, and the finish is long. This is the best O’Reilly’s to date! It is well worth the price tag– in fact, at that price, you should buy cases of this wine. This is a full-scale bargain-alert– don’t miss out. O’Reilly’s Pinot Noir is the most popular Oregon Pinot Noir we sell. Every year, the wine’s drinkability and price offer the highest quality and value (and sells out the quickest).
Like it’s big brother, Owen Roe Sharecroppers Pinot Noir 2008, the O’Reilly’s Pinot Noir 2008 is as forward as the 2006, as food friendly as the 2007, but with even better balance and texture.
For O’Reilly’s fans, go directly to the order button for it is MORE LIMITED THAN USUAL, and for many of you, this will probably be a one-shot deal. An astonishing value year after year, with some of the characteristic Owen Roe intensity and vibrance. GREAT value, and great “house wine” for your house. For quality juice, the creed is get-it-while-you-can!”
