Dr. Vino has provided the internet with a list of good Valentine’s Day Pinot Noirs under $20:
So thanks to your generous click-throughs on ads on this site, I deployed my tasting budget gathering 12 bottles of pinot noir under $20 and a few friends. The wines hailed from Burgundy, the grape’s ancestral home, as well as California, Italy, Chile, and Oregon. All were tasted blind, which provided some unusual surprises.
The “hands down” winner was Au Bon Climat, Santa Barbara County, 2005. $18, for those of you who like to cut to the chase. —MEGHANN MARCO
