How low can you go?

Stephen Vincent, Pinot Noir, Sonoma County, 2006. 

Available at the Cheese Store of Silverlake for the low low price of $12.99. 

Pinot Noir should not be this cheap. Ever. And if it is, it shouldn't taste good. You should expect it to be green and weedy. BUT enter the recession when you can get great deals on really good wine. 

Lots of cherry fruit and baking spices, this is a delicious little find and Julian would be happy to sell you a case before the Dow plummets again and you're out of more money. 

Keep drinking wine people! And exercising. And eating good cheese. And good olive oil. Those things will make you happy when you're looking at your life savings go down the toilet.

I sold this in South Carolina. Appellations change from vintage to vintage but the quality remains consistantly good. It retails in SC for a few dollars more. Times are good for the consumer.

Funny, I was over at a friend's house last night and he had a different version of this open - so weird that I had just blogged on it. The one he had was quite good and retailed at Whole Foods for $10. I mean, it was easily worth $20. I was very surprised.
