Does spending the extra $5 necessarily yield a better wine than a $20 or $15 bottle of Pinot? The answer is no, not really, but it certainly does increase your chances. Unlike the tastings I did of those lower price points, every wine in the lineup today was well made and enjoyable, some more than others.
For $25, you can feel pretty comfortable that you’ll be able to find a wine that suits your palate., whether it is New World, Old world, or somewhere in between.
That doesn’t mean you will be blown away. Instead, you might just be slowly seduced by some of these wines. The best of all, the 2009 Thomas Fogarty, is clearly in a class by itself among these wines!
