Don't you just love this Oregon Pinot Noir wine label?
Pinot Noir is one of the most food-friendly wines. With very few exceptions our wine and food pairing tables include entries for this great wine. A signature grape variety in Burgundy France and the state of Oregon, this tempermental and sometimes great grape is grown in an ever extending list of counties and regions. Specific recommendations for Oregon and California Pinot Noir include Roast Goose and Pizza with White Sauce.
California Pinot Noir starts very inexpensively but I would hesitate to spend less than $12-15. In the low twenties try the Acacia Carneros Pinot Noir, a long wine whose flavors of plum, cherry blackberry, and rich earthiness. If you feel like doubling your outlay move up (and north) to the Torii Mor Pinot Noir Willamette Valley Deux Verres Reserve for Double the price and get a lot of blueberry, cherry and blackberry fruit flavors. You can age this wine for another five to seven years. Signature Reserve. Our you can exhange a $100 bill (a get a few dollars in change) for the Etude Pinot Noir Heirloom. What do you get for your money - a rich, mouth filling wine with raspberry and strawberry aromas and wild berry flavors with silky tannins. These grapes are very small and hand picked. Enjoy.
