Since Crush opened, I've had the hardest time finding a great Pinot Noir for under $20.
California has pretty much priced itself out of the market; same with Oregon.
And you can forget Burgundy.
The New Zealand Pinots are often good but have never inspired me the way a truly excellent Pinot should.
After months of patiently tasting lesser bottlings, I have finally found the greatest Pinot Noir for under $20 on the market today: the 2004 Vignoble Guillaume.
