One of the things we love about wine is it is rarely just a bottle or a glass. There's almost always a story that involves some cool people, some good food, and a little bit of adventure.
Take our delicious wine from Saturday night for example. Sally and I enjoyed a bottle of 2009 Cameron "Arley's Leap" Pinot Noir at Eddie V's in La Jolla. You can't taste the wine or the food by reading this post, but I can at least show you the view:
If you love Oregon Pinot Noir, or are interested in getting to know Oregon Pinot Noir, pick yourself up a bottle of Cameron Arley's Leap. It has the perfect blend of strong earthiness and bright fruit that are hallmarks of the region's Pinot Noir.
I first discovered Cameron at Oregon Wines on Broadway while on a business trip in Portland, Oregon. I've been known to frequent the establishment while traveling because they really know their stuff. This wine continues to be one of my favorites.
Sally fell in love with it too when we tried some on a business/wine tasting trip last summer. A bottle or two made it home in our luggage and here we are a few months later.
