2007 Eola Hills Pinot Noir Oregon

Yes its been a week but very busy and time for wine. The weather has turned colder (we have already witnessed the snow flakes) and red wines will be the norm but a white will sneak in especially when chicken or fish is served for dinner.

I really like the 2007 Eola Hills Pinot Noir. On the nose at first the ripe cherry followed closely by spice. Second smell gives me the aroma of red berry (red raspberry comes to mind). Excellent color and my mouth is watering.

What flavor this Pinot gives with the cherry beginning, strawberry/spice combination in the middle and finishing with juicy raspberry begging you to drink more (no need to twist my arm). Medium bodied yet a soft finish. Hard to believe this wine was purchased for $12.99. Make sure you serve this to your friends.

Love the description! Makes me want to invite a few friends over and have it with baked salmon encrusted with roasted hazelnuts. If you prefer, serve this with your favorite pork dish with a side of cherry or raspberry conserves.
