No Swill Zone Alert- Pinot Noir- $5
The first No Swill Zone of 2020 takes you to the south of France with one of our favorite producers- Domaine Laroque.
Laroque is made from historical vineyards in the ancient region of Carcassonne that produces an extraordinary and unique wine made from 100% Pinot Noir. Laroque (from the latin roqua and in French means the rock) derives its name from the Menhirs (a single standing stone that dates back to the middle of the Bronze Age like Stonehenge) which are found around Carcassonne. The Laroque vineyards are located nearby the city of Carcassonne, famous ll over the world for its medieval city and the Canal du Midi, both classed as World Heritage sites by UNESCO. The soil on which the vines are planted date back to the pre-historic Jurassic Period.
For those of you who know this wine over the years we have carried it, you will remember it was a bargain at $11.99btl, and still is at that price. But, we thought we would start off 2020 with an incredible deal on the Pinot Noir. NO ONE beats this price. Be fast before it sells out…respond NOW.

Aromas and flavors of nut oils, smoky black tea, bark, tart black raspberries, and cassis inform a wine that combines density of underlying material with brightness and lift such as one might expect from top-flight Bourgogne, and a salty, chalky finishing savor that reels you in for the next sip. The tannins here are a tad rustic, but on the palate it delivers waves of bright cherry fruit that finish long and elegant.
