- EVENING LAND 2009 PINOT NOIR EOLA-AMITY HILLS :
If you love Pinot Noir as I do, you’ll want to buy enough of this delightful wine to age some in the cellar. It’s classic Oregon in its fruit and herbal character, and quite Burgundian in style. Bright cherry and plummy aromas harmonize with notes of minerals, herbs, and spice in this delicious red. I loved it on its own, but it’s best enjoyed with a great meal featuring seared salmon or ahi, herb-roasted lamb chops, or a prime ribeye steak. A fairly new brand founded in 2008, it’s dedicated to Burgundian varietals from the best growing regions around the world, including France, Oregon, and California. The wines average $25 and up, but they’re all devoted to good quality no matter which price level you choose. A great choice whether you’re drinking it alone or enjoying it with food, these are classic Pinots that are Burgundian in style no matter where they’re grown. Available at Tastes of the Valleys Pismo Beach, it’s $24.87 retail.
