Ask for a 2010 red bourgogne from Burgundy.

None of my picks would be available at BevMo.

Your question begs me to ask what style of PN do you enjoy? Ripe, acidic, tannic, balanced? Black or red fruited profile? Flabby or structured? Lots of styles and mine might not be yours, therefor my suggestion might be a waste of your money.

"None of my picks would be available at BevMo"

Exactly why I suggested the french version, though they may not even have that!

Oh well there's always La Crema

Siduri is pretty consistent and usually comes in around the high-20-to-mid-30 dollar range.  It is also pretty easy to find.  I'd think that BevMo would have something from them.

Pasha,

Do you have an independent wine shop near you that could guide you to good CA pinot (preferably Russian River or Sonoma Coast)?  If BevMo is your only choice, perhaps try this one-

2009 Fort Ross Sea Slope pinot noir.  Not my first choice in a CA pinot, but BevMo choices are very limited for pinot- for all wines:

Avoid La Crema.
