Passport to Pinot

A friend of mine scored tickets to an IPNC event called Passport to Pinot, wherein great Pinot noir from around the world is brought in to the Oak Grove at Linfield College. I didn’t dare try them all, but the ones I did try were amazing!

I, stupidly, 1. didn’t take pictures at the event, so here is a shot of the Oregon Pinot noir glasses we got to take home and some informational materials, and 2. didn’t take notes. So I can tell you which wines I enjoyed, but not why. There are so many different flavors and smells in wines that, honestly, I could probably make something up and sound about right–but I won’t!
