Underwood Oregon Pinot Noir, 2019

This was poured for me at a friend's house, and I did not guess it was an Oregon Pinot Noir until I checked out the label. It is simple Oregon rather than Willamette Valley appellation.

Dark color and bold fruit smells and flavors are reminiscent of a Zinfandel. There is a peppery, spicey, earthy flavor, though, that I associate with a good Cotes du Rhone. Offers up a lot of pleasure for a $10 wine.
