2013's Erath Pinot Noir: The perfect wine to pair with your read-through of Vertical

The 2013 Erath Pinot Noir ($24.95-$29.99) is a bright, balanced take on the famously fickle grape variety. Layered with cherry fruit and subtle spice it makes a perfect mate with turkey.

2013's Erath Pinot Noir.

If fans of 2004’s wine-themed movie Sideways could have one Christmas wish it would have to be that someone would finally bring Vertical, the sequel to the novel that inspired the film, to theatres.

Apparently Sideways’ director, Alexander Payne, isn’t interested, so Vertical’s author, Rex Pickett, has just re-issued an edited version of the book (now subtitled Passion and Pinot on the Oregon Wine Trail) in what I assume is an attempt to garner interest from elsewhere in Hollywood. 

I read it when it was first released in 2011, and while Miles and Jack are up to some of their old tricks, things get dark, and a lot less wine inspired, halfway through. Wine lovers on your holiday shopping list will relish it, especially if it comes wrapped with a bottle of Oregon Pinot Noir.

The 2013 Erath Pinot Noir ($24.95-$29.99) is a bright, balanced take on the famously fickle grape variety. Layered with cherry fruit and subtle spice it makes a perfect mate with turkey.
