Free Shipping on 6 or MoreQtyYou're going to flip for this Acrobat Pinot Noir from Oregon. Enjoy the delicious of your first glass with goat cheese-stuffed figs wrapped in prosciutto. The bright fruit, floral spice, and earthy notes, come together beautifully to make this fresh Pinot perfect with salmon, duck, lean beef, pork loin and much more. Bring out the gentle spice of this Acrobat with bacon-wrapped salmon with a cumin demi glaze. Grilled flank steak with soy-glazed green beans is an easy choice sure to please. If you're looking for something a little more fancy, we love the earthy side and the red fruit of this Oregon red with rosemary crusted rack of lamb, shallot marmalade, and a white bean ragout. Open another bottle and savor it with a velvety Swiss Forsterkase cheese. It's spicy, woodsy and potent, and paired with this Acrobat, has been known to inspire spontaneous cartwheels. Are you hungry yet winelovers??!
