What Possessed Us To Open Wine?

We picked up this Pinot last summer at the Pahrump Winery about 45 mins. outside of Las Vegas. It looked so good, we waited until we were having people we really liked for dinner and until we were having food we thought would go well with it.

What Did The Label Want Us To Know?

While it was bottled by Nevada Wine Cellars, Inc. in Pahrump, the grapes came from the Willamette Valley. Really, do you need to say more? There is no description of what you are going to taste. The label has a sort of understated elegance. The winery there could also be described that way.

What’s So Great About It?

David liked the full-body for a Pinot. I thought it was absolutely delicious. I couldn’t quit smelling it. It went really well with a very rare steak.

Someone Else’s More Qualified Opinion:
This is more about the winery than the wine, but still interesting! http://blog.travelpod.com/travel-blog-entries/travelingma/7/1309570902/tpod.html
