Underwood NV Pinot Noir, Oregon, $14
Best Buy! Union Wine Co., unveiled its canned Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris program at the foodie Feast Portland in the summer of 2013, and interest in convenience packaging from Whole Foods sparked the movement to expand. Winery/vineyard owner Ryan Harms continues to lean heavily on Pinot Noir from the warmer Southern Oregon, which boosts the fruitiness of the profile. There’s a fair bit of complexity as black cherry, strawberry fruit leather and orange oil include some earthiness and cherry tomato. Its flavors run toward cherry cobbler and plum-skin tannins with a pomegranate finish. These come in individual cans as well as six packs, and their reach extends to all sorts of retailers. The price listed here is for a pair of 375-milliter cans, and the lineup has grown to seven canned wine products. Those cans reportedly represent half of the winery’s production.
Production: 100,000 cases
