Erath Winery 2010 Pinot Noir, Oregon, $19

By on May 16, 2013

Oregon wineThis is one of the most abundant and widely distributed Pinot Noirs made in Oregon, a wine whose production has gone up dramatically since Ste. Michelle Wine Estates purchased Erath a few years ago. Thus, this is a wine that does a lot of missionary work for Oregon, carrying the message of its Pinot Noir across the country and even around the world. It opens with aromas of white strawberry, white pepper, cherry and black truffle. On the palate, it reveals flavors of cranberry, raspberry and red plum. It’s all backed with bright acidity and mild tannins.
