This week’s quick sip is the Adelsheim Elizabeth’s Reserve Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2006. Last week I invited a few friends over, including fellow wine-blogging buddy Frank Morgan of DrinkWhatYouLike, to taste and talk about Pinot Noir wines. Pinot Noir is considered one of the most sensual and seductive wines in the world with amazing finesse and complexity. The best examples of Pinot Noir come from the famed wine producing region of Burgundy, the grape’s homeland. Pinot Noir also thrives in Oregon’s Willamette Valley, where the cool climate and growing conditions seem like a perfect marriage for the finicky Pinot Noir grape variety. Next to Burgundy in my humble opinion, only a handful of regions can get it right – and the Willamette Valley is one of them. During our tasting, the Elizabeth’s Reserve was a two-thumbs up crowd favorite – the only complaint we had was we wished we had another bottle when the final drop was poured.
