Boy, I have just found the wonderful world of Pinots.

I'm lucky enough to work for a wine distributor and able to sample many different wines at reasonable prices.

So far, Domaine Drouhin '97 Laurene has captured my heart.

It's the end of the vintage and we thought our inventory was gone. BUT the last inventory turned up two precious magnums! Quickly snagged by yours truley for our wedding anniversary next month.

At the Monterey Wine Festival, there were pretty slim pickins. The only one I cared for was a Bernardus.

CC, you're thinking of Joseph Drouhin from France. Domaine Drouhin is his daughter - her vineyard is in Oregon. Still, not cheap.

I've not heard of the others you mention. I'll have to keep an eye out. Although I really do have a problem paying retail anymore! ;)



fodigger,
I love Wild Horse! Had it for the first time last month while in SLO for a bike ride.

I'm a huge Central Coast fan. Love the Zins from that region!

We'll be down there again this month and I can't wait to explore more wineries!

Love EOS, Chumeia (sp?), Dover Canyon, Dark Star...Ooooo, my mouth is watering!! :D
