Oregon wine can be extremely affordable. This is the foundation I started my writing on, and I’m continually impressed with the options I have as a frugal buyer. An amazing option that I just recently discovered was one that I knew I had to share. The 2013 Underwood Pinot Noir. What makes this wine stand out so much? The balance of price and, well, deliciousness. From the moment this wine hit my glass I loved it. This wine is a blend of Pinot grapes from all over the state and is an excellent example of affordable Oregon Pinot Noir.
In my glass the Underwood Pinot Noir had a beautiful hue. It was light in color, and in body, and had really nice balance. It was earthy with hints of oak, and flavors of currant and spice really came through. The tannins were perfect, and the wine had a nice smooth finish. Another cool fact about this wine is that it’s available in a can. That’s right! A can!
Union Wine Company, the producers of Underwood Pinot Noir, really focus on value and quality. For frugal wine buyers, and especially lovers of Pinot, this wine was an amazing find. Buying a Pinot and loving it all for less than $15 a bottle – is a gift! Pick this bottle up for yourself at most local grocery stores and retailers. The running price for this wine is about $12. Yes, just $12 for a thoroughly enjoyable Oregon Pinot. Run, don’t walk to get this wine. It is delicious and enjoyable treat. Cheers!
