I have loved Pinot Noir even before the movie Sideways was released...funny so many other people told me to see that movie, and then when I did I truly identified with the Paul Giamatti character.
I had no idea that Pinot Noir grapes were so fussy, but I also shunned Merlot, and felt particularly self-righteous in my opinion that it was an inferior wine.
Anyway, I think that this forum would be a good venue for sharing wines that we like. I am a true believer that wine can be good and doesn't need to be expensive. I have had many good yet inexpensive wines....
I would be interested in hearing what everyone is drinking, and we can be specific....that way we can share our knowledge and improve our wine drinking experience.
