Two to recommend. Maybe more to come...it's fall and the perfect time for pinot noir. This season, I want my pinots reliable (bye bye Burgundies under $65), modern with traditional inspiration (sturdy fruit with balanced alcohol and good acidity), and velvety (melt in your mouth tannins). So, classically sexy, I guess.
