Bethel Heights, Eola-Amity Hills, Willamette Valley, Pinot Noir, 2010

     Floral and inviting nose, you know that there is going to be something special about this wine. When you taste it there is almost a sour cherry flavor but then when you think about it, similar to raspberry instead. As you can see in the picture it has a great dark red, almost, purple color. If you enjoy a light Pinot Noir then this is your bottle.
     I'm not going to compare this wine to a person you know, but if I did, it would be that girl you see from across the room at a party. I'm a guy, I'm going to write from my experiences. She may not be prettiest, or have blue blood in her veins, but it has been a little while since you talked to someone interesting. It may not lead anywhere, but you hear her talking about "Game of Thrones" and you cannot resist.
     It's a little rough going at first. Is this a sincere conversation, with you making most of the effort, while she effortlessly contributes? Nope. Your interaction soon turns north, it is bright and engaging. Sadly, after an hour her ride grabs her wrist and says, "Time to go." It was a memorable evening. You're a little drunk, that's OK. Go home, don't Facebook her dude. Just go to sleep.
