Wine of the Week…
Belle Pente 2008 Williamette Valley Pinot Noir
Rated #1 for 2008 Oregon Pinot Noir by NY times

This is a gem!! A huge thanks to sister and her boyfriend for discovering this incredible Pinot Noir from Oregon, and bringing us a bottle over Easter. I kept hearing great things about the 2008 crop from Oregon for Pinot Noir and this is proof that it was a fabulous year!
The NY Times also agreed in rating it number one when tasting between 20 bottles. I am loving Pinot Noir as we transition from winter to summer! Let me know if you have tried any other fabulous Pinots recently. Always looking for new wines to taste and feature. Cheers!
