Well, if 2000 was an off year, then I am very much looking forward to 2001 considering it is supposed to be a really good vintage. I do agree though, that most wine shops tend to ignore this region -- at least in my area. The QPR of this place region seems like it might be pretty good. I am particularly thnkful for the fact that I have now finally found a wine to go with chinese food. Before, my beverage of choice to pair with this was really none at all (ok, ginger ale).
