May 20 / Pinot Noir: Appellation Challenge $22 / Sideways said it best: "it's a hard grape to grow ... it's thin-skinned, temperamental, ripens early ... it's not a survivor like cabernet, which can just grow anywhere and thrive even when it's neglected.... it can only grow in these really specific, little, tucked- away corners of the world." We will be tasting six exceptional Pinot Noirs from six very distinctive corners of this globe.
