Colene Clemens Dopp Creek Pinot Noir 2017 $26.99
Given its track record the last three vintages, Dopp Creek has firmly established itself as one of the best values in Willamette Valley Pinot noir. The 2017 is OUR pick of the last three vintages (yes, you read that right). What we love about it: wonderful aromas, silky-bodied cherry-red berry fruit, excellent balance, classic Wilamette Valley Pinot. -Avalon Wine
Christopher Michael Cabernet 2017 $11.99
This 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon gets its character and fruit from across the Columbia Valley, a widely respected region any big red would proudly call home. Eager to be opened, this wine is bursting with blue and black fruits that are framed by sweet vanilla and cocoa from the oak on which it was aged. -Madwine
