Thirsty Girl Taste With Erath Winery!

On Wednesday night, I participated in a live tasting on Twitter with Thirsty Girl.  We received a bottle of Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir from Oregon’s Erath Winery for the tasting.  Erath Winery is located in the Dundee Hills of Oregon and they have been making wine for over 40 years.  They are known for their incredible Pinot Noir and I was super excited to have the chance to taste a couple of their wines.  Here are my tasting notes from this fun event:

Erath Winery 2011 Oregon Pinot Gris

Pale gold in the glass with fresh aromas of citrus and pear.  The palate is very refreshing.  There are vibrant flavors of lemon, lime, pineapple, and green apple.  A perfect summer sipper!  Pair with seafood or Asian dishes. (B+, 13%, $14)

Erath Winery 2010 Oregon Pinot Noir

Pours a brilliant ruby color with aromas of red berries and a hint of earthiness.  Flavors of tart berries and spice mingle in this light bodied Pinot Noir.  The approachability of this wine ensures you won’t have leftovers for the next day!  Pair with salmon or pizza topped with goat cheese and mushrooms.  (B, 13%, $19)
