Toast to Portlandia with a cherry-accented pinot noir
Quality Oregon pinot noir existed long before a certain TV series began. Portlandia Pinot Noir 2015 features cherry aromatics and pairs well with salmon, grilled seafood, mild cheeses or Grandma’s pork roast. This blend is reminiscent of a soda shop fountain Coke with cherry syrup. I have always believed wine should be fun, and this smile-inducing variety is enjoyable in more ways than one.
$17. Available at The Wine & Cheese Place
