Wine Enthusiast included Ponzi Vineyards Tavola Pinot Noir in a story focused on fantastic Pinot Noirs under $30. The recommendation notes that Tavola is a great bottle from the Willamette Valley and that it is widely available.
“Aromatic and bright, the sassy raspberry fruit dominates nose and palate, with drying tannins echoing through the finish. It was aged in 20% new French oak for just under a year.” Read the full story HERE
Tavola is Ponzi’s delicious early release Pinot Noir, a fruit-forward wine with soft tannins, made primarily from younger, lower elevations vines. Meant for early consumption, it is an unbeatable value for quality Pinot Noir.
