Brooks is a small winery in Amity, Oregon committed to organic and biodynamic farming practices. Last week, I uncorked a bottle of their 2011 Runaway Pinot Blanc and definitely knew it was a bottle I wanted to share with you guys!
This Pinot Blanc pours a pale, gold color in the glass. It opens with aromas of tart green apple, pear, and lime. It is crisp and tangy on the palate with tastes of citrus, peach, and a hint of nuttiness. The racing acidity and vibrant flavors are sure to awaken your taste buds! ($15, 11.3% alcohol)
My Wine Rating – B+
Food Pairing Suggestions – Pair with shellfish, sushi, or brie cheese.
