Oregon Pinot Noir, Warm Reds for Cool Nights and a Far and Wide Selection of Whites and Reds

Bruce Sanderson
Issue: December 31, 2010

The Pinot family of grape varieties—Blanc, Gris, Meunier and Noir—is one big happy clan. (Some might include Chardonnay in that group as well.) The list within, however, sticks to varietal bottlings—all of them from the West Coast. Also, Wine Spectator's senior editor Bruce Sanderson can’t think of anything better for winter weather than a big, robust and hearty red. They’re perfect with winter fare such as soups, stews or braised meats, or simply for sipping by the fireplace. And another mixed selection of white and red wines that go long on quality and short on price are included. It’s hard to beat its delicious, mouthwatering fruit flavors.
