Erath Winery Pinot Noir 2021
The Oregon Pinot Noir is the cornerstone of the Erath wine portfolio. A blend of different vineyard sites in Oregon, this wine is a fruit-forward, ready-to-drink style of Pinot Noir designed to highlight the variety's best characteristics. Their goal with this wine is simple—make the best Pinot Noir in the world for under $20. Erath's slogan as listed on the back label: "Grapes from the EARTH, wines from the HEART . . . ERATH."
This soft and approachable Oregon Pinot Noir appeals to red and white wine lovers alike. "Wafts of red plum and raspberry intertwine with spice, soft sage, and an intriguing hint of cracked pepper. The palate features flavors of juicy bing cherry, cranberry cocktail, and a late kiss of vanilla spice. A gentle coaxing of light tannins offers a pleasing pull toward another sip" (Gary Horner, Erath Winemaker). Crafted to highlight Pinot's best characteristics, enjoy it on its own or discover how well it pairs with food such as Thai or Chinese pepper sauce, grilled scallops, thin crust pizza margherita, pasta with red sauce, or zesty BBQ.
