Elkhorn Ridge Vineyards & Winery “Le Terre Foss” Willamette Valley Pinot Noir, 2008 “777” Willamette Valley Pinot Noir, 2008 The 2008 vintage in the Willamette Valley is a standout for Pinot Noir, and these two wines demonstrate that quality with individual style.

The 2008 Elkhorn Ridge “777” Willamette Valley Pinot Noir displays bold black fruit character and uncommon structure.

Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars Estate FAY Vineyard Stags Leap District The FAY Vineyard is where the story of Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars began back in 1969, when founder Warren Winiarski tasted Nathan Fay’s 1968 homemade Cabernet. Warren knew instantly that he had found what he was searching for— classic elements of fruit, structure, finesse and balance, all in perfect proportion. It was a style Warren refers to as “an iron fist in a velvet glove.” This rare five-year vertical Magnum collection, spanning 2002–2006, is a true collector’s item.
