in pursuit of the juiciest wine: day thirty-two

Belle Vallée Pinot Noir 2007I thought about Oregon Pinot Noirs today. I love Oregon Pinot Noirs. They are the best, especially from Willamette Valley. Erath is my favorite Oregon Pinot Noir, but tonight it will be Belle Vallée Pinot Noir 2007.

This will be a quick entry, too. Allons-y.

It has a translucent body, as an Oregon Pinot will. It’s light purple, I suppose.

It has a big nose and smells like western Oregon. The nose also has dark berries and one yellow flower on the periphery. Maybe some pomegranate, too, as my girlfriend noticed. It also smells tight, which concerns me.

It has a bigger body than I expected, and it is not tight.

Once the wine hit my tongue, it gave me an internal smile. It started off juicy but didn’t finish as juicy. It had juicy strawberries up front and finished with raspberries.

This is quite delicious.//
