Scale the Heights
Just because it was nearly sold out at one liquor store doesn’t necessarily mean it will be at others. Ask for it, so you can try it for yourself.
2009 Bethel Heights Pinot Noir, Oregon ($29.95)
Appearance – beautiful bright ruby/garnet red
Bouquet – fresh red berries with a touch of herbs (thyme really jumps out)
Flavour – cherry and raspberry with a light zing of cranberry on the back end. Nice finish on the palate.
At almost $30, this wine is a good quaffer. Quite suitable on its own, I paired it with pan fried quails and a side of pasta in an aromatic tomato sauce. Very nice, indeed.
