6 wines of finesse and complexity

Oregon Pinot Noir $35-$45 I’m continuing my move up the price scale, and am finally getting into the bottom layer of the top wines. There’s a lot of great wine available at around $40 a bottle. Seeing as how this is about as much, and maybe even more, than a typical consumer might spend for a splurge bottle of wine, it’s not surprising that it is also a very competitive and packed price point.

You have to produce mighty fine wine to be a value at $40, and in Oregon that means finesse and complexity. It also means having a little something extra, which could be blazing aromatics or a extra density adding weight to the palate and potential to improve. My top two picks from Oregon share that little bit of extra weight, but number three is closing in on them with a lean, focused style that I probably would prefer at the dinner table.
