I’m sure there’s nothing actually the matter with Oregon, it’s just a bit surprising that I can’t seem to find any good Oregonian wine. Everyone raves about how its great wine country, the photos are beautiful and I really want to jump on the bandwagon, but sadly I’m missing the boat. I admit I’ve been biased against Oregon for several years. It was Valentine’s Day circa 2009 when Husband and I ordered a bottle of Willamette Valley Pinot Noir, paid through the nose, and ended up seriously disappointed. It’s literally been years since I ventured there again, but since I’m now a serious wino wine blogger, it’s pretty lame that the only domestic wines I drink are from California.
So there I was in the package store and I see another bottle of Oregon Pinot Noir. Regularly $18.99, on speci
al for $12.99. It was also from Willamette Valley but I thought, “Hey, I’ll give it a shot.” Well, it tastes the same as I remember. Tinny, metallic and dirty. Blech.
So here’s what I need from you, Alleged Blog Readers. Send me suggestions on delicious and affordable wines from Oregon and I’ll give them a go!
Cheers to wine friends and the promise of better wine to come!
 It was Valentine’s Day so of course it was nice and pricey, but it was the type of restaurant that should have had a good wine list.
 It’s their “Grand Opening Sale” so I was thinking it was a good deal, not, this wine suck so lets mark it down. Let’s hope that was not the case since I literally bought a case of other “Grand Opening Sale” wines. Feck.
