GBPC Global Oenology Club
It's Friday, Friday, Friday....
Thanks to Sam's organization, we have had a couple monthly gatherings in the office to learn about wines from around the world.
A couple months ago, I discussed Rioja.
Today, Justin provided a thorough discussion of pinot noir and a flight of Beaune Red Burgundy and Willamette Valley pinot noir called Argyle. It was interesting to compare the "barnyard" aftertaste of the Burgundy and the sweet cherry qualities of the Oregon wine that is grown in more of an old world style than over engineered California pinot noir.
