05 Sep For Wine Thursday!, a good bang-for-the-buck Oregon Pinot Noir…2016 Acrobat
It’s the rare wine
that lives up to its name.
For example, if you were to enjoy a glass of
The Idiot, Meglomaniac or Fat Bastard,
it’s highly unlikely that you would exclaim…
“now that’s an Idiot!” (or Meglomaniac or Fat Bastard)
BTW, those are real names of real wines.
For Wine Thursday!
our weekly good-wine-at-a-good-price
that’s easy-to-find recommendation,
we’re featuring a wine
that’s nimble and light on its feet
During the past few years, Oregon has enjoyed
a succession of favorable vintages.
In part, that explains why there’s an increasing number
of better-than-average inexpensive Oregon pinots
currently on the supermarket shelves.
Acrobat’s 2016 pinot is a great example.
As we noted, like its namesake,
it is light on its feet
(wine talk meaning it is light-to-medium bodied)
(more wine talk meaning it’s easy to drink on its own
but also pairs well with food).
And at less than $20…
at some stores, much less…
it’s a good buy.
Drinkable sub-$20 Oregon pinot noir.
Oregon and Mother Nature, keep it comin’.
