Schreiner's Winers: We Know Pinot 4/16/10

Posted by VegasOenophile, Apr 20, 2010.

We met for a tasting of pinot noir from the major pinot producing areas.  Some very nice ones and some disappointments.  The nice find was that some of the great bargains were also some of the highest rated by thr group and it was a nice experience showing the many ways pinot can show its multitude of qualities.  My ratings are on each.  If you don't want to click the links, I put the (glass number 1-5 rating) next to it.
