2012 Oregon Value Priced Pinot Noirs Honorable Mention

The following value priced Pinot Noir wines are often widely distributed in wine retail and supermarket stores. They are often discounted below the listed prices. Pinot Noir priced at $50 or more has often been decried as the “dead zone” because the poor economy in recent years has made it more difficult to sell wines in this price category. The wines listed below, however, can be considered to be in the “fun zone” and drinking these wines can make you feel good about skirting a punishing economy. All these wines received the Value icon award.
