Well color us flabbergasted. We submitted the 2013 and 2014 Titan Willamette Valley pinot noir wines to the highly discriminating palates of the Great Northwest Wine panel of reviewers, and were absolutely gob-smacked to learn that the 2014 Titan received an “OUTSTANDING!” rating, published on September 23, 2016 (the 2013 Titan’s review has not yet been posted).
We currently have slightly more than 90 cases of this wine in stock. Contact us ASAP to reserve your bottles for our Fall Shipping window, which is now open—with orders shipping throughout the month of October (depending on the weather conditions in your region of the country).

Bells Up Winery 2014 Titan Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley, $40
David Specter fled a career as a corporate tax attorney and recently launched his winery along Bell Road near Newberg, Ore., in an impressive Chehalem Mountain neighborhood that includes Medici, Privé and Zimri. This young Pinot Noir even includes a contribution from Medici’s 25-year-old own-rooted Pommard planting, and the unfiltered juice offers fanciful aromas of fruit punch with strawberry, cranberry, cinnamon bark and cola. That theme translates onto the palate, which is approachable with additional hints of strawberry/rhubarb jam and raspberry acidity. There’s just enough grip within the juicy finish for suggestions of roasted duck, red meats, salmon and robust vegetable dishes.
Production: 126 cases
