Hitting the jackpot is what we thought when we tasted this Pinot Noir stunner. "Oregogne" is no joke and, since it's the brainchild of a former sommelier turned beveraage/hospitality entrepreneuer, we aren't shocked at what this wine has achieved — absolute deliciousness. Yes, it tastes like a Burgundy, but that is the point. Want to impress peeps that know a bit about wine? Bring this.
