Reply to "Pinot Noir"

These are some quick generalizations that might be useful.

'05 Oregon Pinots are more structured than other recent years and deserve bottle time. Plenty are still available.

The '06s that are coming out are riper and more accessible. The better ones will age gracefully, but most of the inexpensive ones are ready now.

The Latour Marsannay really needs more time. It's available at K&L for only $16. Give it a few years and it will be a better everyday wine than comparably priced Oregon PNs.
