Bethel Heights Pinot Noir 2006 wine review by (PB)
I snagged this bottle while on a business trip to Charlotte last winter on the recommendation of the shop owner.
This is an Eola-Amity Hills Oregon Pinot that is light cherry in color with cocoa and raspberry aromas with touches of strawberry with slight minty and anise notes.
Palate--juicy spicy fruit of strawberry with crusty toast hints, a pleasant bitterness with lingering bright fruit galore.
This was just delicious easy drinking and at $30 a nice splurge! Raise a glass--and take advantage of those out of town business trips to find wines you don't normally see in your area!
