Petiole Pinot Noir

Oregon Pinot at a Great Price

Petiole Pinot Noir

Staff Wine Review –

Good Booze. Needs decanter time.

A decent enough Oregon Pinot Noir for under $10. Wake it up in a decanter/carafe and enjoy it. It won’t age much or hold its fruit for a long evening on the table, but at this price, it’s a pretty good, light Pinot, again after 30 minutes or so.
