WINE REVIEW: 2017 Erath Pinot Noir, Oregon ($18)
by Andrew Chalk
Appearance: Brick red. Translucent core.
Nose: Earthy, forest floor, thyme, black pepper.
Palate: Soft but juicy tannins. Flavors of raspberry. Relatively simple.
Finish: Red fruit.
This is Erath’s popularly-priced offering. It is pleasant and worth the price, but not a complex wine.
