Price: $8.47 at Total Wine
Style: The “Anna” (Medium body with fairly simple and straight-forward fruit flavors.)
Recommendation: “Have a glass or two”
A nice moderate nose leads things off with an earthy mix of raspberries and underbrush. Palate reflects the same, but is pretty subtle and dilute. Nothing really changed with time or air. It was well balanced with a light body and medium/short finish. Good and solid everyday drinker, but a little underpowered for me. At around $8, seems worth picking up a bottle or two… but probably not going to become a new house wine for us.
Underwood is part of the Union Wine Company portfolio in Oregon. They’re all about making quality wines at a lower price than you’d usually find in Oregon… especially for a Pinot Noir. http://unionwinecompany.com/
They seem to be best known for their canned wines. Like beer cans…. only “sophisticated.”
And if I’m going to be drinking it out of a can when I’m in the woods or something, I think the Underwood Pinot Noir would be more than sufficient to do the trick.
