Oregon Pinot Noir

It's easy to begin with Oregon, for a couple of reasons. No other state in the union has seen the proliferation of successful labels accompanied by the global acclaim that Oregon has achieved. This is of course Pinot Noir country, and Pinot Noir that is produced in a more old world style than most anywhere else in the USA. That is due primarily to the weather, which can be cool and damp. The results though tend to be bright and juicy, something that seems to be just a bit counterintuitive.

As for the appropriate wine? How about one which celebrates both the brilliance of Oregon Pinot Noir, and revolution, albeit not ours. Isabelle Dutarte is making wine under both the De Ponte and her own 1789 labels, the latter named for the date of the French Revolution. Classically Oregon yet with a light touch, it's a fabulous Pinot and one sure to be a crowd pleaser.  Try it with lighter grilled meats and of course salmon from the grill.
