Looking for a rich, full-bodied Pinot Noir that won't break the bank under $20 a bottle? The Clay Shannon Long Valley Ranch 2020 is a classic blend of richness and elegance, and a great choice for Thanksgiving because of its versatility with a wide variety of foods. The inviting aromas of red cherry, strawberry, and cranberries leads to a core of juicy fruit flavors where a touch of oak adds depth and complexity. Bright, concentrated red fruit comes through on the palate, alongside delicate spice notes followed by silky tannins. Balanced by a full-bodied palate and bright acidity, it's not overly boozy, which is perfect for holiday guests. At $17.99, it's a great value as the same bottle is being sold for $40 at the winery!
"Full of red cherry, red currant and orange tea flavors, this multidimensional, full-bodied wine is a standout. It layers subtle cinnamon, clove and vanilla accents among the lively, ripe fruit flavors while good acidity and light tannins provide great balance." The Wine Enthusiast, 92 Points
