Best Buy! One of Southern Oregon’s largest family owned vineyards, Melrose Vineyards produces some of the state’s most approachable and nicely priced wines, and the Parkers’ “Farmers Wine” — Vin du Fermier — from the historically warm 2015 vintage presents a riper style of Pinot Noir. Dark purple tones of plum juice and blueberry bring some earthiness and a touch of maturity that carry through to the drink, which comes in a medium structure and long finish of Marionberry jam. Suggested pairings include smoked ribs, pasta under a Bolognese sauce or a board of cured meats and cheeses.
