Today’s Wine Review


Cooler temperatures and rain have made a comeback here, at least for the next week or so. I’ve rescued a few of my pans and utensils from the storage unit and am able to cook again. Tonight it was a favorite of mine, chicken fajitas. For the wine I opened a bottle of Erath Pinot Blanc, 2013, an Oregon white wine.

The Pinot Blancs that I’ve had in the past were soft and off-dry, fruit forward wines. This one was quite different than those. This wine was dry, crisp and had that mineral taste synonymous with a Sauvignon Blanc. The wine was a yellow golden color more like a Chardonnay than a Sauvignon Blanc. The wine tasted somewhere between a Sauvignon Blanc and a Chardonnay, with that hint of that flat beer taste I get whenever I drink an oaked Chardonnay.

I think this wine would have gone better with a different dish. Maybe something not so spicy like grilled chicken or shrimp. It didn’t go that well with the spicy chicken. Oh well live and learn. There are many more wines out there to try.

  1. haven’t tried a pino blanc before. I like an oaky chardonnay but with a clear no-aftertaste
