Our featured wine of the week: D’Anu Wines 2012 Dundee Hills Pinot Noir – Owner/winemaker Joe Williams used grapes from Vista Hills Vineyard in Oregon’s Dundee Hills for this bright, lively and delicious Pinot Noir.

It is seamless throughout and finishes with length and elegance. Suggested Food Pairings: A perfect wine to pair with grilled pork and fresh Salmon.
