Food Pairings for Gresser Vineyard Pinot Noir Wilamette Valley Oregon
In all truth this was a bit of a "what the hell" for me. I was putting together a discount half-case at my local grocery, and recalled this wine being discounted several times over. I can't recall the last time I had the opportunity to try a Wilamette Valley pinot for under $8, so I figured what did I have to lose? Upon opening the bottle I was greeted with some of the troubles the vintage throughout the area faced -- light fruitiness backed by strong acidity and tannins that overwhelmed the delicate flavors. A slight pour-off and four-hours later, though, I returned to a bottle that was pleasant for such an absurdly low price point. The heat of the acid remained a bit much, but the distinctiveness of sweet cherries emerged from the mix, with green herbs following. Tasty, and worth a complement to a weekday meal. While it, along with many of the 2007 peers might not be worth the original sticker price in my eyes, not bad at all with a nothing-to-lose wine.
