10 OPP Mouton Noir OPP ($20) ☺☺☺

Mouton Noir's rather eclectic labelling and names distract from the rather good burgundian style Pinot Noir from the Willamette Valley. OPP Stands for Other People Pinot and with other names like Horseshoes and Handgrenades OPP sounds quite logical. The Burgundian Style is very cherry and and earthy, hints of spice and sandalwood make up the wine and it is best left dented for about an hour.
