2015 Erath Pinot Noir ($13)
This Pinot Noir is from Oregon, a state that has gotten and continues to get a lot of attention for Pinot Noir.
While the Willamette Valley has gotten the most attention for their Pinot Noir, this one is a blend of different vineyard sites in Oregon.
Erath's goal with this wine is "to make the best Pinot Noir in the world for under $20."
As Pinot's should, this one has nice flavors of raspberry and cherry. It finishes with a bit of tannin from its aging in French oak.
The best Pinot Noir in the world for under $20? I'll leave that up to you to decide. But it certainly qualifies for meeting the criteria to be featured in Behind the Cork™ - Wine of the Week. It's a very affordable Pinot Noir that you should be able to find everywhere that wines are sold.
