    Gioia: Please try Gioia's 2007 Pinot Noir.
    It won a silver medal at the Los Angeles International Wine & Spirits Competition this past June.
    Gioia is a very small boutique winery with low production to keep it simple and pure.

    Richardhw: There are some brilliant Pinot Noir wines that come from New Zealand - try a Hawkshead 2007 grown in the Gibbston Valley, possbly one of the best areas in the word for growing pinot noir, and you'll see what I mean

  • mecduvin
    mecduvin: The description for Pinot Noir needs to be addressed. I am thinking of a monstrous Pommard clone from Lachini Vineyards in Oregon. Cuvee Giselle is a flinty, smoky behemoth that gives lie to the "light-colored red wine" description. The pinot noir grape i...  more

    NeophyteinWine: The everyday Castle Rock Pinot Noir, as long as it is MENDOCINO COUNTY - don't go for other counties!!! - just rocks. And it's cheap, and you can find it everywhere.

    XCITMNT: Thanks Laura8 for the recommendation on the burgundy. My most recent pinot was the Talisman 2004 Thorn Ridge Pinot Noir. Highly extracted in color for a pinot that is like a 2003 red burgundy. The nose provided bing cherry and I enjoy that very much. ...  more

    Laura8: The other day I tried a 2006 Faively Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru that was really nice!
    Aromas of raspberry & smoked meat with spice and an earthiness to it. Long finish. But I think i should have decanted or opened it and allowed it to breath for a whil...  more

    CROMBIE: Wow...sounds like some people haven't tried Oregon Pinot Noir. I know for certain the St. Innocent's Anden Vineyard Pinot Noir 2005 can easily stand up to a decent premier cru. Personally, The 2004 Burgundies are silky and wonderful...I'm...  more

    Dermott: I recently purchased a Pinot Noir from a large supermarket in England for only £3.99. It came from the Langurdoc and was made by Bouchard Pere and Fils, the well known Burgundian vintners, I do not know if it is available in the US but if it is, seek it ...  more

    CheckD: Hi all. I recently drank a bottle of 2006 Mount Difficulty from Central Otago, New Zealand. It cost me 20 GBP but it is truly the best non-burgundy I have ever tried and is definitely worth a look.

    Mark: There are three words that can best describe pinoit noir wine: impressive, velvety, and seductive. Its flavor and aroma, which remind you of strawberry, black cherry, cinnamon, and meat, linger on even after the wine has passed through your throat. It is ...  more
