Aging Oregon: Examining Pinot Noir

Posted: September 27, 2010  By Thomas Matthews

I don't have the experience to put Oregon's wines in context with Burgundy's, or California's, especially not when it comes to older vintages. But like most wine lovers, I am fascinated by Pinot Noir, and I jumped at the chance to explore its history in Oregon.
