Forest Grove Cellars Pinot Noir 2009

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

Earth notes andmdash; mushroom, forest floor, and rich soil andmdash; are dominant on the nose of this organically grown Oregon Pinot Noir. Underneath, bright red fruit and subtle herbal elements begin to waft from the glass as the layers of complexity (pretty stunning for this price point) begin to unfold. The palate is delicate and not super in-your-face like many domestic Pinots andmdash; the Forest Grove seems to channel the grapeandrsquo;s Burgundian roots. Iandrsquo;d love to see this wine on the dinner table; it would be best with roasted duck, beef Bourguignon or grilled porchini mushrooms.

Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.

Certified organic. Cherry cola, plums, dark cherries and more red fruit are layered nicely throughout your glass. Its medium weight allows it to be drunk by itself, but there is also enough backbone and structure to match with foods. A nice treat with slightly pink lamb chops, or with grilled chicken over bowtie pasta tossed with artichoke hearts, roasted red peppers, plum tomatoes and black olives, all dressed with a lemon/virgin olive oil.

Earth notes - mushroom, forest floor, and rich soil - are dominant on the nose of this organically grown Oregon Pinot Noir. Underneath, bright red fruit and subtle herbal elements begin to waft from the glass as the layers of complexity (pretty stunning for this price point) begin to unfold. The palate is delicate and not super in-your-face like many domestic Pinots - the Forest Grove seems to channel the grape's Burgundian roots. I'd love to see this wine on the dinner table; it would be best with roasted duck, beef Bourguignon or grilled porchini mushrooms.
