American Wine - Wines of Oregon,Washington, and Idaho
Oregon makes very good Pinot Noir. At best, this elixir is silky and perfumed, seductive and elegant. Pinot Noir is difficult to grow and only certain places in the world do it well. Oregon is one of them, and this grape variety is becoming the state's claim to fame in the wine world.

Pinot Noir from Oregon and elsewhere is distinguished because it is such a transparent medium for reflecting terroir. For this reason, the wines can be very different, but equally beautiful.

The Willamette Valley of Oregon, especially known for its Pinot Noir, is divided into six smaller regions, all of which produce their own expressions of this wine grape and its terroir. The regions include Dundee Hills, Eola Hills, Chehalem Mountains, Yamhill-Carlton District, Ribbon Ridge, and McMinnville. If you're into Oregon Pinot Noir, you can fine tune your passion further by zeroing in on one of these regions.

Dundee Hills makes Pinot Noir that tastes of raspberry, black cherry, earth, truffle, cola, and spice.

Eola Hills makes an amplified version of Pinot Noir. Blackberry, blueberry, black cherry, plum, and mineral flavors feature prominently, sometimes with suggestions of white pepper and dried flowers. These wines are fuller bodied and usually age well.

Chehalem Mountains makes a wide range of Pinot Noir from the brighter, raspberry-scented variety to the deeper, darker, black-fruited style depending on the exact vineyard location, weather, and producer.

Yamhill-Carlton District Pinot Noir tends to be mouth filling with complex flavors of red and black fruit, tobacco, coffee, clove, and smoke as well as violet, rose, and lavender.

McMinnville wines are highly pigmented for this notoriously pale red variety with a core of firm tannin and acidity, and a massive palate of fruit and earthiness.

Washington makes world-class Riesling. Mosel winemaker Ernst Loosen and Chateau Ste. Michelle in Washington produce what is widely thought to be America's best Riesling—a wine called Eroica, named after Beethoven's masterpiece. It's a steal at less than $20 a bottle.
