Wine of the Week: 3 Girls 2010 Pinot Noir


I was struck by an appealing and intriguing 2010 Pinot Noir this week, crafted by Lodi’s Oak Ridge Winery under their “3 Girls” label. This soft wine offers smooth flavors of red plum, raspberry and red currant, with earthy, woody, mushroomy undertones and a hint of mint and tobacco. Beautifully balanced and very approachable, this Pinot would be excellent served with mushroom risotto, coq au vin, prime rib of beef and even braised rabbit.
