Chehalem Three Vineyard Pinot Noir 2010, Willamette Valley, OR - $24

We received this wine as a gift from JG and MG for Christmas. I knew it would be really nice so I saved it for a special occasion - and we weren't disappointed! It is 100% Pinot Noir from three different vineyards (Ridgecrest, Stoller, and Corral Creek) and was rated 90 by Wine Spectator. It retails online for $24/bottle.

Aroma - raspberries and tart cherries
Taste - red fruit, light gunpowder, dry, very light tobacco, smooth, good acid

This wine went great with sushi tonight (crab roll, salmon and tuna nigiri, rainbow roll). And it's only 13% alcohol - perfect! Thanks for the fabulous wine, JG and MG!
