Drink of the Week: Westrey Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2007

It’s tough enough to find a bottle of wine that’s so versatile it goes with any type of cuisine, but finding such a wine for around $20 a bottle is an even taller order. And that’s one of the reasons we love Westrey’s 2007 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir. Delicate yet expressive, this light-ruby beauty offers up aromas of rose petals and fresh herbs, along with flavors of sweet strawberries and tangy raspberries. Blended from four different Willamette Valley vineyards, this unfiltered wine has lots of bright acidity and a lingering finish, both of which make it perfect with everything from grilled salmon to roasted pork loin to veggie pastas. $20, klwines.com
