Natalie's Score: 91/100

Oregon Pinot Noir is a different wine than pinots from other regions: it's edgier, mouth-watering and acidic in a great way that can handle many dishes from planked salmon to roast chicken. I love this style far more than the fleshy, sweet berry ripe pinots. This wine also sports a silky texture, medium body and a snap on the finish.

Pinot Noir food pairings: cedar-planked salmon, roast beef, turkey, pork tenderloin, coq au vin.
