Reply to "Who knows Pinot Noir?"

For about $23 seek out Tollot-Beau's Chorey Les Beaune. Always a great qpr in good vintages, which is a RARE find in Burgundy. It is also a mid more new worldy than most Burgundies so a good crossover.

I think the basic Freeman is under $35 -- very tasty.

I would also reccomend La Crema Sonoma Coast which should be at or below about $20.

The basic Sainsbury is usually about $25 and I've never been dissapointed with a good vintage of that.

I've never had it, but based upon the more expensive "Beacon Hill" bottling (and the expertise of the winemaker) I feel comfortable reccomending the baic Oregon bottling from Soter.

One Italian wine to look for is Braida il Baciale. It is a Pinot/Barbera blend pried around $26 and, even though it contains a high percentage of Barbera, it is generally the Pinot that really shines through.
