Sass Me Why Don't Ya?

Last night I fixed a stewed chicken and olive dish. We wanted a fairly light red wine to drink with my made-up concoction. 2005 Sass Pinot Noir from the Willamette Valley in Oregon got the nod. Retailing for $18.99 at River City Cellars, this Northwest wine has been fairly consistent throughout the years. Light and fruity, but with a heavier mouth-feel, this wine shows off blackberry and cassis characteristics with a slight bright blueberry undertone. It did a nice job of pairing with both the chicken and olives.
