I Never Liked Pinot Noir Until...I never liked pinot noir. I had a bunch of Oregon wines, they were always flat and peppery to my taste. I wrote the entire group off.
But then we moved to France and I discovered Bourgogne. Wow! Fantastic. I became snobby about it and a bit insufferable when we eventually moved to the US.
But slowly I found there were French-style pinots here, lovely subtle wines from all over the place. Glad I learned that.
